If you think chocolate avocado pudding tastes like chocolate + avocado… think again! It’s a deliciously creamy treat that is also good for you and is super easy to make. Watch the video to see how this yummy dessert is whipped up in less than 5 minutes.
The secret to this chocolate pudding? Ripe avocados! If you think avocados don’t belong in dessert, I’m about to change your mind. The avocado gives this healthy chocolate pudding a thick and creamy texture and it adds a lot of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Don’t worry, this doesn’t taste like chocolate avocados, because of the cocoa powder, honey, and bananas give it a rich chocolatey taste!
I like serving this recipe as a snack or healthy treat for my kids, they enjoy it because it tastes like chocolate pudding and I love it because it’s good for them. Avocados are a healthy source of fat, and unsweetened cocoa powder is full of antioxidants.
If you are feeding a picky eater, then this recipe is a great way to add a healthy dose of nutrients to a food item that they are already familiar with: chocolate pudding. The option of letting them know avocados are in the mix is entirely up to you ;)

The riper the bananas, the less likely you’ll need to add honey since they’ll naturally sweeten the pudding.
This healthy dessert is best when chilled. I recommend making the pudding and allowing it to chill for at least 2 hours before serving. If leftovers are even a thing (not in my house), you can refrigerate and enjoy within one day.
