In case the avocado wasn’t already your favorite emoji and tableside appetizer, we’ve found another reason to love them! We’ve got two words for you:

Avocado. Pudding.

This rich, decadent, low-carb dessert can satisfy all of your chocolate cravings any time day or night! The best news: it’s COMPLETELY guilt-free!  Yes, avocados are high in fat, but they’re high in monounsaturated fat which is the “good fat” that helps lower bad cholesterol.

We know what you’re thinking… avocados and chocolate? But just trust us, this will be your new favorite way to kill a sweet tooth. This chocolate pudding doesn’t involve any milk, heavy whipping cream, cornstarch, or sugar that you’d find in most recipes; what makes it creamy is the avocado base. Not to mention, we used coconut milk, which makes it 100% dairy free and vegan-friendly. It can be thrown together within minutes and you can easily adjust the recipe to make more or less depending on how many servings you need.
