Hi guys! I first tried Avocado Pudding at Brett's parents house. Kristen (Brett's sister) found an awesome recipe, and included it in her cookbook Myriad. At first, I was pretty skeptical to try it, for pretty obvious reasons. I mean, avocado with chocolate? What? I tasted it though, and was basically blown away. It tasted like dark chocolate icing. It makes no sense, that something so good and healthy can taste like that. So wrong, but also so right. It was the solution to all of our chocolate-loving dessert problems.
A couple of weeks ago, I uncovered a recipe over on A Beautiful Mess for a very similar Avocado Pudding (link to recipe below). This one was slightly more whipped and mousse like, due to the addition of almond milk. I decided to give it a whirl, and was still equally blown away that it could taste that good. Here today, we have the second recipe, and all of it's awesomeness. Check it out below!
Ingredients (recipe adapted from A Beautiful Mess): yields one serving
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/2 cup of almond milk
- 1 tbs. of honey
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp. of vanilla
Step one - Pit and remove avocado from it's skin. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. If using a blender, make sure to mash your avocado first, my blender in the past has not agreed with avocados. Serve chilled, in cute little bowls, and enjoy!
