Equipment

  • Medium-sized bowl

Ingredients

Optional garnish

  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Gather your ingredients together: 4 ripe avocados, 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/3 cup extra virgin coconut oil, 2 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp chia seeds, and sweetener to taste (stevia extract for Keto or honey or maple syrup for Paleo).
    For stevia extract, start with 5 drops. For honey or maple syrup, start with 1 tbsp.

  • Use a spatula to transfer pudding to a bowl and let refrigerate for at least an hour. This will help to firm up the mixture into a pudding-like consistency. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

  • To serve, remove from the refrigerator and let it sit out for a few minutes before consuming. The pudding firms up well in the refrigerator so letting it sit out at room temperature softens it a bit. Garnish with chopped fresh strawberries (or any berries), dark chocolate chips, shredded coconut, etc. if desired.

Notes

Notes: You can adjust the sweetener to your own taste. You could even add a frozen banana instead of the honey, maple syrup or stevia extract.
This avocado pudding has the best flavor when eaten right away. If you store it in the refrigerator for too long, the taste of the avocado starts to become noticeable.
