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 dairy free 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! I hope you enjoy this Paleo avocado chocolate pudding as much as we do!

Paleo Avocado Chocolate Pudding RecipeFor once, the healthier alternative is actually easier and tastier than making pudding from a package. It’s also far easier than making ‘real’ chocolate pudding from scratch. It takes under 10 minutes to prepare, requires no cooking, is refined sugar free, 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 dairy-free chocolate pudding!

      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!

        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.

      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. =)
