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?
You’ll come around…..
