Chocolate Pudding

Suitable from 12 months

Chocolate & avocado pudding
This recipe defies words – it is amazing – rich, decadent, simple… and nobody will ever guess it is healthy or contains the secret ingredient that makes it creamy – avocado -unless you tell them of course. There is simply no excuse for making an unhealthy chocolate pudding at home ever again.

Recipe tips
This was a new recipe for us and it took us a few tries to get it right. Note that it is important to select ripe avocados, as unripe ones can taste bitter and the pudding may require more maple syrup. The milk adds extra creaminess, but you can leave it out if you prefer, or don’t have any available. Coconut milk can be replaced by cow’s, goat’s, sheep’s or almond milk. If you don’t have any coconut oil, or would prefer not to use it, you can omit it – but in this case you may find that you do need to include the milk.

This chocolate pudding tastes great plain, but if you would like to add some extra flavour you could add a few drops of real mint essence, or replace the coffee with orange zest (fine grated orange peel) or even chopped or ground nuts. This pudding is also delicious topped with banana and grated chocolate, chocolate chips or ground nuts as an alternative to the dessicated coconut.

You can skip the refrigeration step in the end but the pudding will be thicker and fudgier if you include it.

    Hi Jackie and Nina,

    Just out of my babyfood processor (perfect size) and chilling out in the fridge!
    It is so creamy and tasty (yes, I have eaten all that was left in the jar before cleaning it, could´nt resist ;).
    I have used raw agave syrup and raw cocoa from Renée Voltaire, and made it with 2 avocados.
    I am sure my parents in law will love it tonight, thanks.
    Tack tack Little Foodies,
    Frédérique
