Avocado Chocolate Pudding

I love chocolate! And, so does my son. So, in trying to think of "healthy" treats and desserts that my son and I could enjoy together, I came across this recipe. I don't know about you or your child but my son is very picky. So, I figured, if I could sneak in black beans (a.k.a protein and fiber) via my Chocolate Bean Cupcakes, I could sneak in avocados (protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins B6 and B12, etc.) via this recipe.

One would think that avocados and chocolate don't go together; however, using unsweetened cocoa helps mask the avocado flavor. On the flip side, avocados give this recipe a creamy texture. For a little added boost, I add about a tablespoon of chocolate protein powder (which we keep it around for emergencies) in my son's portion.

One word of advice, avocados are a high-calorie food so, it's wise not to eat too much of this delectable snack at one time.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: None
Serves: About 2 cups

Ingredients

2 ripe medium avocados, peeled and chopped
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey or raw agave nectar

 

1/2 cup plain/original almond or coconut milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Add all the ingredients and half of the honey (or raw agave nectar) in a blender, food processor or large bowl (for a hand-held mixer) and blend until smooth. If necessary, add the rest of the honey or raw agave nectar to sweeten. If the texture is too thick, add a little more milk.

Serve immediately, or chill before serving

Note: Regular milk can be used in lieu of almond or coconut milk; however, if you choose to use regular milk, we recommend using whole milk to ensure a thicker consistency.
