Got Any Extra Ripe Avocados Kicking Around??

For those who aren't used to the succulent taste and texture of an avocado, then this recipe might take a few minutes to wrap your mind around!

How do you take a green/vegetable-y food like avocado and make it taste like something you would arm wrestle your husband over? Well, you make it into a chocolate pudding :)

Today's recipe is "Chocolate Creamy Avocado Pudding"

There are a few variations of this but this is my fav basic one:

-take a ripe avocado (or two or three, just adjust measurements accordingly)
-mash it up until it is smooth (can use food processor if preferred)
-on stove top take some extra virgin coconut oil (about 1/4 cup) and melt it, mix it with some pure cocoa powder until a dark brown liquid
-mix with avocado
-then simply add raw honey until sweetened to your satisfaction!

Some Variations You Could Add:

-add smooth 100% peanut butter (tablespoon or 2)
-add shredded unsweetened coconut
-add chia seeds (tablespoon or 2)
-add organic raisins
-add organic chocolate chips
-add a very ripe mashed banana

You can even take this pudding and make it into a pie filling! I've used in with nut crusts or even graham cracker crusts.

Super yummy!

I assure you this...it won't LAST LONG :)

**Note: I want to thank my friend Christina Meyer for introducing me to adding the coconut oil to this recipe. It's taken it to a whole new level of tastiness! Thanks Christina!!

  1. We're so glad to have you join us at NOBH. Happy blog hopping!

    1. Thanks again!! One of the best blog hops I've found :)

  2. I saw this over at Modest Mom link up and I laughed because I am right now eating avocado chocolate pudding! However, the way I made it was different than yours. Mine was a ripe avocado 2/3 cups carob powder and 2/3 cups agave nectar. Regardless, it's delicious any way you make it and healthy too!!

    1. I've heard of using Carob powder! I should try that sometime.
      Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. I'm dying to see if the kids like it...and I'm half hoping they don't (more for me).

    1. Laugh!! Well, hope they do, but ENJOY it if they don't :)

    1. I'm sorry, I'm not sure. Sometimes I have trouble on other blogs with clicking on links as well. Which link specifically are you trying to use from twitter?

  7. Oh yum. I think this would taste great. Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. It does!! Hopefully you get an opportunity to try it out :)

  8. My youngest loved this as a snack. In fact, every now and then when I remember to make it, he still likes it.
