Chocolate Avocado Pudding Recipe on You will never know the secret ingredient is avocado! This pudding is creamy and decadent!

It’s Friday and we all need a treat! Today we are sharing a recipe for Dark Chocolate Pudding. This isn’t any old pudding recipe. It is special because it has a secret ingredient. The pudding is made with avocado!

I am an avocado fanatic so I love anything and everything with avocado. I was super excited to try this recipe. If you think avocado in dessert form sounds weird, don’t turn up your nose on this one. I promise, this decadent chocolate pudding will change your mind. You won’t even know there is avocado involved. I probably shouldn’t have told you, but if you are going to make it, you would obviously see avocado listed in the recipe. I can’t hide anything from you guys:)

Chocolate Avocado Pudding Recipe on Vegan, Gluten-Free and SO decadent!

This amazing recipe comes from The Blender Girl Cookbook by Tess Masters. I met Tess last year at a blogging event in California and we instantly became best friends. I just love her! She is one of the nicest and most genuine people I know…and she is beyond talented. Tess is hilarious, inspiring, and knows her way around the kitchen.

Chocolate Avocado Pudding Recipe on Love this healthy, rich, and creamy pudding!

Tess’s Dark Chocolate Pudding was a hit at our house! It was super easy to make. There is no cooking involved, you just put all of the ingredients in the blender and blend away! The avocado makes the pudding extra creamy, but you won’t even know it’s there because the pudding is so rich and chocolaty!

Dark Chocolate Pudding

Yield: Serves 4-6

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 3 hour Chill Time

Total Time: 3 hours 10 minutes

Deep dark chocolate pudding that is made with a secret ingredient...avocados!


1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (I didn't add this)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
Raspberries, for garnish


1. Put the almond milk, avocados, cocoa, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt into your blender and puree on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides with a spatula.

2. Transfer the pudding to glasses, ramekins, or jars and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours.

3. To serve, top each pudding with fresh raspberries.

Note-the pudding works best with ripe avocados that don't have any brown discolorations. The pudding is best the day it's made, as the avocados will oxidize and the flavors will change over time.

    Thanks for sharing Maria. So glad the pudding was a hit with Caleb. SO cute. Love you xxx

    I have made this and found it blended much better using my immersion blender. The regular blender left too many chunks of avocado & too much scraping involved!! Was absolutely delicious & I recommend eating it same day as made….

  3. Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness — April 11, 2014 @ 6:25 am

    Oh wow, can’t wait to try this and I will be adding the almond extract. I love its flavor in baked goods. We have started a new eating plan and avocados are encouraged on the third phase each week. Can’t wait to try it.

    Chocolate pudding is a BIG hit in my family. For 2 years running my youngest son wanted that instead of a cake for his birthday. He also is an avocado nut. He takes after me on both counts. I can’t wait to give this a try.

  29. I’ve been wanting to try this for a while, it looks so yummy!

  30. Love this! Pinned it for later!

    I love our chocolate pudding mind meld!! So fabulous!!

  32. Stephanie - — April 19, 2014 @ 11:20 pm

    This pudding is out of this world. All the other people who said “sounds good” or “I’ll try it later”…don’t wait. This is outstanding. Very easy to make and fabulous taste. Rich and creamy.

    I made this recipe and I was so excited. It was so rich and creamy. I gave it to my kids and they loved it too. I was wondering however if there was a way to make it a little less sweet/rich. I would like to tone it down a little bit but I wasn’t sure which ingredient was good to start with. I hoped that since you had played with recipes, you might know how to lighten it up a bit. Please email me and let me know. Thanks so much for making a lactose intolerant person very very happy!!!

      I haven’t played around with this recipe. Let me know if you do! Glad you liked it!
