Gina’s Choco-Cado Pudding

IMG 1488 thumb   The Best Chocolate Pudding You Will Ever Taste

I have wanted to make an avocado-based pudding for a while now (thanks for the reminders in yesterday’s discussion!!!). I asked Gina if she had a recipe that I could use and she provided me with her Choco-Cado Pudding recipe. It was super easy to whip up and it tastes like a dream!! I made a few small modifications that are noted beside her recipe.

[Recipe Source: The Fitnessista]

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup agave (dark) (I used 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup water (I forgot to add the water, but I loved how thick it was!)
  • 1/8 cup cocoa powder
  • small pinch sea salt
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (I used coconut butter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions: Throw all ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth.

It takes less than 2-3 minutes to prepare!

I asked Gina to marry me on Twitter after I made this. That pretty much sums it up! :mrgreen:

I have never in my life tasted a pudding so delicious. Gahhhhhhhhhhh.

And no, you cannot taste the avocado at all.

Avocados are also rich in Vitamin K, Folic Acid, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Oleic acid, and carotenoids!

I just made this… really if I had to make this again I would totally skip the agave nectar… (I put 1/4 cup) it is so (too) sweet and rich that 2 spoons and I had enough…

Elle @ Acquired Tastes February 25, 2010

I’m still on the fence as to whether I like avocado or not… can you taste the avocado or does it the pudding just taste like chocolate?

Looks delicious though!

Angela (Oh She Glows) February 25, 2010

I had seen avocado based puddings before but was always reluctant to try them. This has convinced me – it looks phenomenal!!!

Reply

Ricki February 25, 2010

I do love a good choco-avocado pudding! This one looks fabulous (love that you left out the water–thick IS better!). Quick question re: embedded links in emails: do you do it the same way as in a comment (ie, start with html code, a= href, etc)?

Brooke February 25, 2010

Mmmmmmmmmmm! I am most definitely making this tonight!

What is the difference between coconut oil and coconut butter?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) February 25, 2010

coconut butter has the flesh of the coconut mixed in :) Its very thick and creamy.

Reply

Ellie February 26, 2010

where do you get your coconut butter. I can only find coconut oil…

I used to make avocado pudding all the time and somehow forgot about it, but I remembered early this week while grocery shopping. Now I’m just waiting for the avocado to ripen.

Isn’t coconut butter another name for coconut oil? If not, what kind do you use?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) February 25, 2010

coconut butter has the flesh of the coconut mixed in Its very thick and creamy. The kind I have now is by Artisana.

gina (fitnessista) February 25, 2010

hey kristina,
there are many versions of chocolate avocado pudding- it’s a very common treat in the raw food world and doesn’t have many ingredients.
i promise that this particular version is a gina original :)
