Vegan Chocolate Pudding (with avocado!)
That's right -- with avocado! Did you know that you could make amazing delicious, and 90% healthy chocolate pudding with an avocado? Until late last year, neither did I!
Oh, don't mind Scrutinizing Vegeta behind the cup, there. He just sits there...judging me.
Anyway, I wanted to make a super quick and delicious little treat to surprise Rich with sometime last year, and after poking around, I discovered that people were making pudding with avocados, and I thought, "Gosh! What a great idea! I have a ripe avocado at home!" So I gathered some ideas and made this pudding. It was so good, and it is definitely everything chocolate pudding should be: dense, rich chocolate-y, and oh-so satisfying. So if you want to try something new, give this a go! I promise you will not be disappointed!
1 ripe avocado, seed removed
2 tbsp sweet berries, such as raspberries or blueberries
2 tbsp cocoa powder (I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa)
1 tbsp maple syrup
Mash the avocado, then blend up all the ingredients together in a food processor (or you could whisk it really well).
Serve with fresh berries and a dusting of cocoa powder.
And that's it! It's so easy, it's barely a recipe. Just a quick note: definitely make sure you mash the avocado really really well if you are going to whisk everything together -- you don't want avocado chunks surprising you as you enjoy your treat!
