Decadent Vegan Chocolate Pudding
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I have a serious sweet tooth!
In my quest to find sweet desserts that are both nutritious and delicious, I have found that avocado makes an excellent base for desserts.
With nearly 20 different vitamins and minerals, avocados can fuel your body and provide a great source of anti-inflammatory nutrients.
These tasty fruits are high in a vitamin known as folate, which is critical during pregnancy, as well as B vitamins, lutein, vitamins C & E.
Plus, they are high in monounsaturated fat – the GOOD fat which helps to lower bad cholesterol levels.
I made this Decadent Vegan Chocolate Pudding during one of my morning news segment on Good Day Rochester and everyone loved it.
And as usual I had my little taste tester not far behind, and guess what – he LOVES this recipe, too.
Eating healthy is all about making small changes. This pudding is actually much easier to make than traditional box pudding because you do not need to let it set.
Just pull out that food processor and in two minutes you’ll be in chocolate dessert heaven. Aside from the delicious and creamy chocolate taste, this dessert is packed full of nutrition – which is often rare for dessert!
- 2 perfectly ripe avocados
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
- ¼ cup honey or agave
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¼ cup plant-based milk
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Cut the avocado in half and remove the seed.
- Scoop each half into the food processor.
- Add the raspberries, honey, cocoa powder, milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
- Pulse on high for 60-90 seconds, scraping down the edges and blend again as needed.
- Garnish with more fresh berries and raw cacao nibs or chocolate chips as desired.
To make this recipe Keto friendly, substitute the honey or agave for 2 tablespoons of a non-nutritive sweetener, like stevia.
