Paleo Superfood Avocado Chocolate Pudding

I know what you’re thinking – “Chocolate avocado pudding?!” It’s what I thought, too, but, wow, my first reaction was so wrong! I don’t even like avocados, but they’re going to be a frequent addition to my shopping list after this experience. This paleo-friendly pudding is amazingly thick, creamy, delicious, and so decadent-tasting you won’t ever want a different chocolate pudding again. You can give it to your friends, coworkers, husband, or kids and they won’t even guess it’s made with avocado instead of cornstarch, eggs, sugar, and who knows what else. It is truly amazing – you have to give it a try!

Paleo Chocolate Avocado Pudding Recipe

For once, the healthier alternative is actually easier and tastier than making pudding from a package, and it’s far easier than making ‘real’ chocolate pudding from scratch. It takes under 10 minutes to prepare, requires no cooking, and doesn’t contain any wacky ingredients with names you can’t pronounce.

I really never expected to combine avocados with chocolate, or even to even voluntarily purchase avocados, but I’m confident you’ll be a convert, too, after you try this pudding.

This recipe makes about four reasonable portions, and it keeps for several days in the fridge. Just make sure to store it in a container with a lid or cover it with plastic wrap to keep it from drying out and to prevent any funny fridge odors from invading!

Have you tried any ‘alternative’ ingredient desserts yet? I’ve had chocolate chip cookies with stealthy zucchini that you’d never guess was included! Do you have any favorite unusual dessert (or just recipe in general!) ingredients?

    This looks interesting! Just by looking at the photos, I could never imagine what was in it! I have used avocado in smoothies before, and it adds that sweet and creamy texture. But pudding… I am going to try this sometime, and I currently have almost all of the ingredients!
    Thanks for sharing this with us, and good luck with all of your business (busy-ness, I mean) this week.

      Ahaha – busy-ness is correct! Thank you for the well wisher – I will need them.
      I hope you have the chance to try the pudding and enjoy it. It’s so delicious!

    Ah, here it is 🙂 I never would have guessed it had avocado in it! If I can get my hands on almond milk, I want to try this.

    • natashalh November 4, 2013, 09:12

      You could make it with other types of milk, I just only use almond milk so it’s what I had on hand. You won’t guess it has avocado after you eat it, either! It is so good.

    I think I am going to have pick up some avocados my next trip to the grocery store. This looks so yummy, and I am very curious to see what it tastes like! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      It sounds so strange, but it is oh so delicious! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some nice, ripe avocados soon. =)

    I tried the choco-avocado combo once and I think it tasted amazing. I totally love this pudding 🙂

    • natashalh November 7, 2013, 06:49

      It is surprisingly tasty and easy! I’m glad you’ve tried it before and don’t think I’ve gone crazy. =) Thank you for the 5 stars!

  • Francesca Villa November 10, 2013, 14:07

    That look so yummy!!!!!! I should try that!!!

    • natashalh November 10, 2013, 15:56

      It is super easy, too! I hope you enjoy. =)

    LOL, I love the “reasonable” portions description. 🙂 I have made brownies with avocado before, so I am really excited to try this pudding!!

    • natashalh January 19, 2014, 13:25

      It’s surprisingly delicious! I’ve never tried avocado in brownies, but now I’m curious.

  • Di March 23, 2014, 08:35

    I recently made avocado brownies—they were a HUGE hit with my family! So when I saw this I immediately thought “Oh yeah, baby!”!! I was not disappointed!

    This is delicious and whips up so quickly! It is dreamy and dark and divine, smooth and creamy. I too used the Hersey’s Special Dark, which really adds to the flavor. The next time I make this I am going add a hint of organic instant coffee powder.

    This will be a frequent rest at our house this summer, when it’s too hot to bake.

    Which leads me to a question….Do you think these would make good fudgsicles?!!? Oh Lord….

      I don’t know how well avocado freezes, but now I’m very tempted to try! I’m glad you liked the pudding and appreciate you letting me know. It really brightened up my day. =)

    Yummm! I’ve already made two batches of this pudding! I don’t usually have yogurt in the house so I have just been adding additional almond or coconut milk. The second batch I changed up a bit to Volcano chocolate pudding (or Mexican chocolate pudding) by adding a sprinkle of cinnamon and a dash of cayenne instead of vanilla. Also delish. Thanks for a great recipe!

    • natashalh October 23, 2014, 11:23

      I’m so glad you like it! I think it’s amazingly delicious and you’d never guess it’s got avocado! Adding warm spices instead of vanilla sounds delicious, too.
