Salted Chocolate Avocado Pudding Bowls

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on May 4, 2016



With an almost bursting bladder and plenty of nervous anticipation, yesterday I headed off to our anatomy scan ultrasound appointment. I always find I get anxious for pregnancy ultrasounds in general, but this one especially. I felt a knot in my stomach all morning long. It’s a fairly long ultrasound since they check all of baby’s various body parts while I sit there with 3 big glasses of water in my bladder, unable to see the screen, and worrying like I do. Still, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel for this appointment. It’s often when the sex of the baby can be found out, if the parents want to and if the baby cooperates with the proper position.

I tell you, we sure wanted to find out! Heck yes!!! But much to my dismay, the technician informed me near the end of the scan that they have a new policy in place as of 2 months ago: the tech is no longer allowed to tell the parents the sex of the baby at the appointment—you have to wait to get the official report. I had no idea! Eric had come to the appointment especially for the reveal, just like the first time, and we were so excited for this day to finally arrive. Oddly enough, with our first pregnancy we didn’t have much luck finding out the sex either; Adriana was crossing her legs at the time. But since baby #2 was presumably in the perfect position, it was torturing us not being able to find out. The most important thing, though, was that the tech said everything looks good, and our cute little baby has a strong heartbeat and was wiggling all over the place! We are so very thankful for that.

Being the patient one that I am, I called my midwives’ office this morning (despite being told it would take 3 days for the report to arrive…hah), and was elated when they already had the report in their hands! I ran into the other room and told Eric the news, not able to contain my emotions in the slightest. I considered surprising him in some Pinterest-y kind of way, but let’s be real: there was no way I could not tell him immediately! (Secondly, Pinterest-style execution rarely happens in my world.) We’re planning on keeping the news a surprise for friends and family this time (mainly to torture the grandparents!), but time will tell if we can keep a secret that long. The sneaky questions are already coming in fast and furious from friends and family. I don’t know if I can hide this for 5 more months, especially in person. My poker face only functions about 1% of the time. It’s bad.


Lucky for you, all of this excitement has made me hungry. For chocolate. Chocolate pudding. I can’t get it out of my head lately. If you’re looking for a last-minute, seriously easy treat for Mother’s Day this Sunday, look no further, my friends. Or maybe you simply need an excuse to whip up a decadent-tasting chocolate pudding. This one is a showstopper, but no one will know it’s as easy as throwing things into a food processor! If you want to get wild and crazy, you could even serve this as a part of a Mother’s Day brunch (and maybe layer it into cute parfait glasses). Chocolate and brunch…it should be a thing…it really should.

Avocado pudding is nothing new, of course, but until recently I had yet to nail a recipe for it that really knocked my socks off (and Eric’s, too). And by knock my socks off, I mean that it has to make my eyes roll back in my head. Previous attempts have left me feeling a bit disappointed, like I was simply eating a healthy pudding that tasted like avocado and cocoa powder. There’s nothing wrong with healthy chocolate puddings (in fact, I have a no-added-sugar version on the blog!), but sometimes I want something that tastes like the real deal. This pudding is rich and decadent like a chocolate pudding should be, but still manages to pack in some nutrition from the avocado, almond butter, cocoa powder, and more. I’ll take it!

Since it’s quite rich, the suggested serving size is pretty light, so I’ve bulked up the bowls with plenty of fresh chopped berries, toasted nuts, and a generous dollop of coconut whipped cream. It’s almost too pretty to eat…almost. By the way, if you have our app, this recipe is already in there! It’ll automatically download when you open the app.

Salted Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, no bake/raw, soy-free


This is my newest favourite chocolate avocado pudding! It's absolutely luxurious, rich, and decadent while packing in healthy fat from the avocado. I love serving this with Coconut Whipped Cream and fresh berries for a lovely spring or summer dessert. This is a small batch making just a few rich portions, so I recommend doubling it if you are serving 3 or more. Thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow's It's All Easy for inspiring this recipe.

1 1/3 cups
Prep time
Cook time
0 Minutes
Chill time
2 hours


For the pudding:
  • 3/4 cup (140 g) packed avocado (from 1 medium avocado)*
  • 1/4 cup (20 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) brown rice syrup**
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) natural smooth roasted almond butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt, or to taste
For serving:


  1. Add the avocado, cocoa powder, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, melted coconut oil, milk, almond butter, vanilla, and salt (start with 1/4 teaspoon) into a food processor. Process until super smooth, stopping to scrape down the side of the bowl as needed.
  2. Taste and adjust salt and sweetener, if desired.
  3. Spoon into an airtight container, cover, and chill for 1 to 2 hours, or simply enjoy immediately at room temperature.
  4. Portion into shallow bowls and top with Coconut Whipped Cream, fresh berries, and nuts.
  5. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 to 2 days. I prefer the flavour when enjoyed the same day, but it's still good the next day too!

The app is great by the way. Very professional looking and well thought out.


Cara's Healthy Cravings May 4, 2016 at 5:48 pm

I am going to give this a try for sure. The last time I attempted chocolate avocado pudding, for Valentines Day, I sadly used some bruised avocados in the mix. So when my husband and I took our first bite we both started laughing because it just tasted awful! I was the first to admit it, so that he would not feel bad :)
I am up for giving it another try though, so thanks for sharing.


Laura ~ Raise Your Garden May 5, 2016 at 6:33 am

I’ve had to learn that lesson the hard way too…..”going cados” do not make good for any recipe! Yucky. Anyhow, I’m just learning about using avocados with chocolate for a creamy, healthier spin on dessert so I was super excited when you posted this! I guess I was too lazy to surf Pinterest (go figure).

Anyhow….shocked about the gender news and that change in policy! It always surprises when when someone says they do not want to know the gender of their baby. It’s like…tell me….tell me…..yesterday!!!


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:38 pm

Oh no! Haha. I hope you enjoy this version if you give it a try, Cara.


Natalie May 4, 2016 at 6:01 pm

Eek! Congratulations on everything with the pregnancy- I don’t think I’d be able to keep the sex a secret. This recipe looks fab, my mum’s having a bit of a rough time at the moment, and she’s jumped onto the Avocado phase- So I think I’ll treat her to this x


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:37 pm

Aw, I’m sure your mom will appreciate it Natalie! You’re so sweet to think of her. I hope whatever rough patch she’s in starts looking up soon! <3


Liz May 4, 2016 at 6:07 pm

We held off telling friends and family for our first baby. It was SO hard! Because my husband and I would use “she” and then somehow we were supposed to switch back to “he or she”. I definitely slipped up a few times, as did my husband. The cat was out of the bag by 7 months. Good luck keeping it a secret!


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:36 pm

Thanks for the luck, Liz! This could definitely get tricky, haha.


Kristen May 4, 2016 at 6:59 pm

Angela, Thank you so much for the update! I am so like you..anxious will call before I’m told! Lol! We get it done! Congratulations! I have your app and it’s do amazing! But I read your blog all the time and look forward to your posts! Tonight was your brown rice mushrooms and gravy concoction! I’m not a mushroom girl but craved and loved it! We have your hidden greens choclate smoothie as our breakfast and it holds us 5 plus hours til lunch! And we wake up at 4:30 am (est in nj) , and lunch has been uyour glowing lentil soup! I portion out the soups of course and freeze. And I make up smoothie bags that are frozen. I put all ingredients in a zip lock including hemp seeds, cacao powder , spinach, banana, conammon, Camilla powder, dates and avocado freeze and in the am we dump the frozen smoothie bag into the vitamix with almond milk and we are set! We buy the avocados, dates, hemp, and bananas at Costco and I measure portion and freeze. The rest is gotten at trader joes and who,e foods! It’s beautiful easy and we thank you! We also love avocado toast too. But since it’s so early and to work if we plan and set up smoothie bags it’s blend and go nutrients! Thank you again so much! Kristen ?


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:33 pm

I’m so happy you’re enjoying my recipes and blog, Kristen! Your comment brought a huge smile to my face. Happy cooking!


Cassie Autumn Tran May 4, 2016 at 7:11 pm

Now I’m hungry too, haha! This looks absolutely wonderful Angela :)


Nicole W May 4, 2016 at 7:14 pm

What a secret to try to keep! And, what a fun way to torture friends and family!
In Burlington, the techs won’t tell you the gender ( or they wouldn’t back when I was pregnant) but my big sis has 3 sons of her own and correctly “read” my ultrasound pics and told me I was having a boy both times I was pregnant :)
On a show I watch, the couple decided to not tell anyone the gender…they managed it by just referring to the pregnancy as ” the baby” e.g. ” The baby is kicking a lot because the baby is always active at night and the baby has strong legs”…doesn’t work grammatically but worked to keep the secret!
What mom doesn’t love chocolate on Mother’s Day?! Great timing with this decadent recipe!


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:31 pm

It’s definitely going to be tricky not to let it slip, that’s for sure! haha. And I’m super impressed with your sister’s skills – wow!


Laura May 9, 2016 at 7:43 pm

This was absolutely wonderful! I couldn’t wait for it to chill- I had to dig in! Thanks for the great recipe! Love your site and cookbook!


Sharon May 4, 2016 at 7:22 pm

Hi Angela,

This recipe looks yummy! I look forward to trying it.

I’ve tried a few of your recipes now and my teenage sons are fans of your avocado pasta sauce, veggie burgers, and favourite chili recipe. Makes it much easier to make lunches that happily feed all of us.

Quick question about the new book and your app (I just bought the app): Do you have any plans to provide nutrition info for your recipes? Also, do you have any plans to add a “search ingredient” feature to the app? (The reason I ask the 2nd question is because some recipes like Hidden Greens Chocolate Protein Shake call for just 1 tbsp of avocado, and it would be helpful for planning the week’s meals/groceries to pull up other recipes that could use the rest of that avocado). I know these questions are not pertinent to this salted chocolate recipe specifically, but I wasn’t sure where else on the website or app I could submit them).

Thanks for all your food creativity – you’re very talented and a welcome addition to our kitchen!


Angela Liddon May 13, 2016 at 9:04 am

Hi Sharon, I’m so happy to let you know that I’ll be providing the nutritional information for the recipes in my new book (the nutritional info will be found on my blog). Regarding the app, you can definitely search by ingredient. Simply tap the search icon (the magnifying glass) at the top of the app and when the search bar pops up, type the ingredient you’re looking for (such as “avocado”). All recipes including avocado will all pop up! It’s quite handy. (Just make sure that your previous search has been cleared.) I hope this helps and thank you so much for your support! Happy cooking!


Sharon May 14, 2016 at 3:07 pm

Thanks for the reply! I don’t know how I missed that search ingredient option – it was right there in front of me now that you pointed it out. I am SO looking forward to your new cookbook.

On another different note, any plans for a sesame snaps recipe? If so, do you think it might work with Erythritol as a natural sweetener alternative to honey? I’ve been reading a lot of good things about Erythritol lately (here: and was just curious.


Jamie Pacheco May 4, 2016 at 8:36 pm

I can’t wait to hear if your baby is a boy or girl!
When I saw this recipe on your snapchat, I was constantly checking the app and website for the recipe. The second it was posted on the app, I made it, and oh my it is amazing!! It’s my new favourite recipe and I’ve been sharing it with everyone.


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:26 pm

I am so happy to hear it lived up to the anticipation, Jamie!


Ruth May 4, 2016 at 9:14 pm

Yum, this looks great. It’s also lovely for you to share this fun in your family! I am glad you got to find out the baby gender, and best of luck keeping it under wraps. It CAN be done!

This looks almost identical to Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe from her new cook book. I just tried it tonight and it was delicious.

Gabriella May 5, 2016 at 6:59 am

These sound divine. Salt + avocado + chocolate = three of my mother’s favorite things. Sending to her immediately! I’m sure I’ll get a text shortly after with a photo of her testing out the recipe :)


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:17 pm

You’re so sweet to forward the recipe to her! If she tries it out, I hope she loves it.

While the recipe looks great, and I will definitely add it to my list of things to make, I’m DYING TO KNOW the gender of your baby. I love your life updates, and I’m so excited for your new addition. Congratulations!


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:15 pm

Thank you, Ashleigh! :)


Abby @ Heart of a Baker May 5, 2016 at 10:30 am

ahh i’m so excited for you about the gender! I know that secrets are hard to keep, but that babe is going to be a perfect one regardless! I have to admit, I haven’t done the avocado pudding thing yet, but this is making me think I need to try it!


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:14 pm

Thanks for your sweet words, Abby! If you give the pudding a try, I hope you enjoy it. :)


Rachel May 5, 2016 at 10:52 am

Congratulations on your new baby! Also, this recipe looks delicious. I am sort of like you in regards to the avocado pudding just not quite cutting it. I always have too much of the avocado flavor coming through, not sure why. I am anxious to try this recipe to see if it is better because I love the idea of it!


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:14 pm

Hopefully it does the trick for you too, Rachel!


Julie May 5, 2016 at 11:18 am

When my best friend was pregnant, she wanted to know the sex, but her husband didn’t so they agreed that she could find out if she promised not to let it slip to anyone. Well, she couldn’t stand it so she told me & swore me to secrecy! (I live in a different state & thus never see her hubby so she felt pretty safe in telling me.) To this day, I don’t think anyone is the wiser that I knew… and her daughter is 10! :)


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:13 pm

Aw, your friend’s so lucky she had such an excellent secret-keeper to share the news with, Julie! :)


Michelle May 5, 2016 at 1:35 pm

Hi there!
I’m in love with your Instant Chocolate Chia Pudding and was excited to try your new recipe. Unfortunately, I can’t find brown rice syrup. Do you have any suggestions for a substitution?


Angela Liddon May 13, 2016 at 11:51 am

Hi Michelle, I haven’t tried the recipe with a substitution yet, so I’m really not sure! Since the brown rice syrup works to thicken the pudding, another thick liquid sweetener with a similar consistency, like honey or agave, might work–though it will pair a little differently with the maple flavouring. Alternately, it might work with 6 tbsp of maple syrup too, in a pinch. If you experiment, please let me know how it goes! I’d love to hear back.

This.was.fabulous! I was so happy about it that I ate it all immediately. I didn’t have any rice syrup, so I used molasses and added some of the coconut water from the coconut cream can and a couple pieces of frozen bananas to mellow out the stronger molasses flavor. It worked! Thank you, Angela! It takes lots of time to get these posts written and online, and I really appreciate it.

I don’t have an iPhone either, but maybe I’ll get one next, just for the app (:

Extra wishes of warmth and light to you and your family during your pregnancy!


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:10 pm

Thank you so much for the warm wishes, Liz! I’m really happy to hear you enjoyed the pudding, substitutions and all. :) I’m curious about the molasses now!


Kari May 5, 2016 at 2:06 pm

This looks so wonderfully satisfying and healthy at the same time!


Anna Lee May 5, 2016 at 6:06 pm

That’s so exciting! But frustrating that you couldn’t find out the day of your appointment. I would’ve been on pins and needles until they told me!
As for the recipe, I’ve actually been craving pudding lately, and I’ve never been a big fan of it. But I can’t wait to try this! Chocolate pudding with coconut cream, my mouth is watering already.


Angela Liddon May 5, 2016 at 7:07 pm

I’d love to hear how you like it when you give it a try, Anna Lee. Hopefully it’ll be a winner!


Suzanne May 6, 2016 at 7:37 am

Oh – you are torturing us with holding back on the gender of your baby!! I cannot imagine how tough this is for the grandparents!!! SO happy for you though that things are going well and baby is healthy and thriving in there :)

This recipe looks AMAZING!!! I will be making this over the weekend – just deciding if I should make it for dessert….or as a treat with our Mother’s Day brunch…my boyz would be thrilled by that! Thanks for sharing Angela…Hope your Mother’s Day is sweet and special :)


Angela Liddon May 6, 2016 at 2:57 pm

Hey Suzanne, Yes, it is pretty cruel, isn’t it!? I have my doubts as to whether we’ll be able to keep it a secret for 5 more months! I hope you enjoy the pudding! I’ll be making it once if not twice this weekend. ;) Happy Mother’s Day!

I’m really surprised to read that they wouldn’t tell you the gender. I’m nearly 25 weeks and we found out at 19 weeks and a half and the tech told us. Nobody gave me the impression that they’re not supposed to tell. That would take away from the special moment. I don’t get it. I’m also in the GTA so it’s weird to hear !


Angela Liddon May 6, 2016 at 2:56 pm

I was pretty shocked, too! I don’t know if it’s just this particular ultrasound clinic’s new policy or beyond (I didn’t ask), but yea it was a definite mood kill. Lol. I’m going to ask my midwife when I see her next.


AGS May 7, 2016 at 12:19 pm

This is a policy determined by each practice.


Amy May 6, 2016 at 1:31 pm

Q about Brown Rice Syrup! I have it in powdered form in a bottle.
Do your recipes use it in LIQUID form, or not? Reason being is that the bottle gives me NO DIRECTIONS about adding it to water for use! Yet, other recipes I’ve tried before call for it in a LIQUID form (ie: 50mL). I’d love any help with this. Thank you! And congrats on your baby upcoming. About baby gender – even 10 years + ago here in BC it was a big thing because of certain ethnical religious beliefs mothers were going to have abortions when they discovered they were pregnant with girls. To this day some places still are adamant about not telling… but other places are different (ie: Whitehorse’s hospital)

Hey! I have a question! I think I’ve read that you have IBS… Do you have any recommendation on how to deal with it? Does eating higher carb/lower fat helps? Or eating a bit more raw food?

Angela Liddon May 13, 2016 at 12:21 pm

Hi Teresa, I haven’t tried the recipe with a swap yet, so I’m not sure! Since the brown rice syrup works to thicken the pudding, another thick liquid sweetener with a similar consistency, like honey or agave, might work (but will pair a little differently with the maple flavouring). If you’re in a pinch, you could probably also just use 6 tbsp maple syrup. If you give something a try, please let me know how it goes! I’d love to hear back.

This is so freakin yummy! As promised, it is not another avocado pudding recipe that taste like cocoa trying hard to mask the avocado flavor. It is super creamy and shiny (which matters for some reason:) Very decadent and integrated flavors.

I actually put all the ingredients in my Ninja single serve container and it worked perfectly. More importantly, the flavor was out of this world!!! I’ve tried many recipes for vegan avocado pudding that were bland and tasteless, but this one… let’s just say I’m going to the store for more avocados and I wish I could rate it beyond 5 stars.

Hi Angela! I started the shift toward a vegan diet almost a year ago and have been loving your blog for meal inspirations and recipes! I have your app and also your cookbook and have to say that I have never made one of your recipes that did not turn out fantastic. The rest of my family is not vegan at all and they also love every recipe of yours that I have made. I love making your dishes and sharing them with other people to show that a vegan diet can be delicious and satisfying. I have made this avocado pudding bowl three or four times now and absolutely love it! My most recent time making this recipe I whipped up some coconut whipped cream and mixed it with the pudding and it turned out as a chocolate mousse. I would definitely recommend this method as it worked very well. Thanks for doing what you do, I really look up to you!

My son is allergic to nuts. Would it be ok to sub the almond milk with oat milk?

I loved your fist Avocado Mousse recipe for your chilled chocolate torte years ago. Im going to give this one a try and I will use it as a filling for my son’s first birthday cake and smash cake :) Let em know if this is not a good idea!

Thank you!

This is unbelievable! I just made it as I had two perfect avocados to be used (yes, I made a double batch – that’s how much I trust your recipes).
I must say you’ve outdone yourself this time Angela :-) Thanks for the note on the brown rice syrup – I would have just subbed maple syrup just to avoid using a second type of sweetener. It definitely gives it that caramel-y taste though.
Tonight’s long-weekend-it’s-finally-warm-in-Alberta dinner will be your Protein Power Quinoa Salad followed by this for dessert. Eaten al fresco ;-)

Thanks for leaving such a lovely comment, Kristen! I’m so happy you enjoyed this pudding recipe. Enjoy that warm weather!

Hi Angela,
My family of 5 boys really enjoy your recipes as do my husband and I its my go-to site for plant based yummy food =)

We just tried the Avocado Chocolate pudding it was a hit!
Wondering if you ever made pudding pops with it and if so how the Avocado held out (I have never frozen Avocado)

Thanks so much!

Hey Sarah,
Wow, 5 boys!! You’ve got your hands full. ;) So happy to hear how much you all enjoy the recipes!
I haven’t tried this specific recipe for pudding pops yet, but I have tried other similar pops in the past using avocado and they worked great. I can’t see why this wouldn’t too!

Hi! Love your recipes. I’m currently not eating any grains. Anything you can replace the brown rice syrup with?


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 29, 2020 at 10:20 am

Hey Emily, Hmm that’s a good question. I’m not too sure as the BRS thickens it up and lends a fairly soft sweetness. You could certainly try maple syrup, but the flavour will be a bit more pronounced and you might want to add it slowly to taste :)
