This post is dedicated to all the avocado aficionados!

This was another test recipe I made up.  I have seen a lot of cooks and chefs incorporate vegetables into their desserts and snacks and I wanted to try to do the same (technically avocados are a fruit but still incredibly nutritious).  I have used avocados for all sorts of dips, smoothies, salads, and savory meals but never for a dessert or sweet treat.  So who’s tempted to try some AVOCADO PUDDING??

Oh c’mon it’s not that bad!  Don’t knock it till you try it.  Trust me.

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and flesh removed from pit
  • 1/4 cup coconut or almond milk cold (I used unsweetened coconut milk)
  • 1 teaspoon of condensed sweetened milk 
  • Drizzle of pure honey or agave (optional)

Just combine ingredients into a blender until smooth and creamy.  To top the pudding I added Organic Cacao Nibs to one pudding and shredded coconut to the other.  I wish I had enough left over roasted coconut chips I think they would be awesome with this pudding as a topping! Overall the texture is thick and creamy but not to much. The taste was a bit sweet due to the agave, and I liked the pudding with the shredded coconut more than the one with the Cacao Nibs.   My verdict is this is not a bad treat at all.  If you’d like you can always add about 1/3 cup quality cocoa powder (100% pure cacao) before you blend all the ingredients together to get a Chocolate Avocado Pudding. So are you ready to try this unique treat?
