One thing I love about baking is using healthy ingredients to turn indulgent desserts into nutritious, guilt-free recipes. On that note, this Chocolate Avocado Pudding is indulgent, yet healthy. Packed full of healthy fats, vitamins and fiber, this is the ultimate snack or dessert! The avocados give this pudding a nice creamy texture, and you can’t even taste them. Avocados can be used in many recipes to replace butter, oil and other unhealthy fats. This recipe is super easy to make – just throw everything into a food processor or blender and mix. Will help curb chocolate cravings. Could it get any better? No to mention, it tastes just like chocolate pudding, you won’t even know the difference!
– 2 avocados, peeled and pit removed
– ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
– ¼ cup honey or agave (or maple syrup)
– 3 tbsp. plain Greek Yogurt
– ½ cup milk of choice
– 2 tsp of vanilla
Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender and mix until smooth. Cover and refrigerate leftover portions. One ½ cup serving is around 130 calories (most of which are healthy fat from the avocado).
*Pairs perfectly with fresh fruit*
