Indulge in a Rich, Creamy, Sinful Chocolate Avocado Pudding…

I’m a firm believer that everything is okay in moderation, however dessert isn’t something that I like to compromise on. I’d rather have a few bites of a real dessert rather than a full serving of a supposedly “healthier” watered down version of the original. That just leaves me with a feeling that it wasn’t worth the extra calories. With this dessert, I don’t feel like I’m compromising on flavor at all. If anything, the addition of the avocado adds more body and richness to this amazing chocolate pudding.


 

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

The thing I love most about using avocados in recipes is not only do they make everything super creamy with their buttery texture but you also can’t even taste them!  Avocados are packed with tons of fiber and vitamins so I love any excuse I can get to add them into my diet, the chocolate is a total BONUS.  Full of antioxidants and disease fighting compounds such as Vitamin E, Avocado’s are the perfect healthy fat which can promote the reduction of cholesterol. These fats make avocado’s extremely filling, which will help you get to your next meal without feeling hungry in between. Avocado’s make a great substitute for butter, oil, or even mayonnaise in many recipes.  For baking, this is one of my healthy secret weapons along with Greek yogurt which you’ll also find in this recipe.

Instructions:

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix until smooth.
Eat right away or save for later when you need to indulge that insane chocolate fix you’ve been craving all day. Top with Shaved Chocolate & raspberries or perfect for dipping strawberries in it! 

Nutritional Information:

Serving Size: 1/2 cup • Calories: 123 • Fat: 9.4 g • Carbs: 20.9 g • Fiber: 6.7 g • Protein: 2.5 g


Tip: When buying avocado’s look for firm, bring green skin with a glossy exterior.   Keep refrigerated until a few days before you plan on using it – then ripen in a fruit bowl at room temperature until the flesh has darkened, and has lost its glossy exterior.

This is a recipe that’s healthy without tasting like it – your guests will never believe that the main ingredient is avocado (this means you can probably even sneak it past your kids!). Finally, a dessert you can feel good about eating.
