Chocolate-Velvet Avocado Pudding


I know I’m a little behind in my daily – er – weekly posts, so please forgive me! I’ve had several requests now to post this recipe, and have been reminded of the fact that I still haven’t by some of my lovely instagram friends, so without wasting anymore time – here it is! (This pudding is paleo too, FYI)

  4. Cover with saran wrap, and place in fridge for 1-2 hours before serving.
  5. When you are ready to serve, add a sprinkle of sea salt on top of each, and some organic cocoa nibs (or dark chocolate chips). Other garnish ideas are mint, tangerine or orange slices, fresh raspberries or strawberries.

  1. Super delish & definitely satisfies my chocolate cravings! Just made my second batch in 2 weeks.
    I also add a banana 😉

    • Hello Jill! Glad you got to try this one out, I really love it! I have made this a few times myself and have tweaked the recipe a bit, and used 1 avocado, the zest of a baby mandarin plus the juice, 2 tsp. of natural orange essence, 1 Tbs. raw honey, and about 3-4 Tbs. cocoa powder and I think it’s my favorite combo yet…the orange actually makes it taste even more like a rich dark chocolate. I am contemplating posting that recipe too, so may just need to make another batch for exact measurements and photos 🙂 Thank you for your comment!
