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:)

Dark Chocolate Pudding

Deep dark chocolate pudding that is made with a secret ingredient...avocados!
4.67 from 12 votes


  • 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.

  1. 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….

  2. What a great giveaway! I LOVE using avocado to make desserts rich and creamy…looks perfect! Pinned

  3. 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.

  4. I need to change the fact that I still haven’t tried chocolate pudding made with avocado. It looks crazy creamy and good!!

  5. Oh man. This looks so good! I always know where to go for a good recipe involving avocados 😉

  6. Big fan of avocados! I can eat it with just about anything and at any giving meal–breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert! Looking forward to trying this recipe 🙂

  7. Hi Maria! Do you think this would turn out alright with vanilla flovored coconut milk? That’s all I have in the fridge right now… Thank you for providing us with soooo many tasty recipes! My family adores these ideas!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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!!!

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

  11. This pudding sounds delicious! Do you think there is anything I can substitute for the maple syrup though? Perhaps honey?

  12. This is the most disgusting dish i have ever been served. It looked like baby poo and the after taste lingered for several hours. Nothing seemed to be able to extinguish the slippery goo like texture from the memory. I would suggest that there is no good reason on Gods earth to abuse avocados in this way. Avoid it like ebola and eat a chunk of cheese instead.

  13. I just made this and it’s delicious! I used flax milk, added an extra tablespoon of cocoa powder, and a 1/2 teaspoon of glucomannan (knojac root powered) to make it creamier and thicker. Into each individual serving up I stirred in a heaping teaspoon (not the measuring kind but the kind you eat from) of peanut butter. I told the boys (14 and 12) that it was Peanut Butter Cup Pudding. You should have seen the look on my 14yo’s face when I told him it was made with avocado. He just told me he could eat a gallon of it. Thank you!

  14. sorry but you lost me at the maple syrup…that’s over 100 g of sugar…not a good thing…and trust me i love maple syrup and honey…anyone tried it with stevia or something instead?

  15. I love this recipe although I don’t use either almond or vanilla extract. To me it gives off a chemical-y taste. I also use good quality brown sugar instead of the maple syrup. I’m sure the maple syrup is better for you but this recipe calls for a lot of it and real maple syrup is expensive. Either way, my kids love it

    Love this! My wife has smoothness issues so I cut back on cinnamon and vanilla, kept the almond, added frozen cherries at the very end and pulsed for just a quick second (I made it in my food processor) and then I folded in toasted almond pieces before serving it out. I garnished it with a few more toasted almonds and a cherry (I’d use fresh cherries once they are in season). OMG!!! This is a keeper!!!

    OMG!!! So good.
    I didn’t put in the extra tbs of  syrup or the almond extract and it was perfect. I did sprinkle a few mini chocolate chips that I had on hand… so yummy!
    I have tried 3 different avocado pudding recipes but none were this good. 
    Thank you!

    Love this recipe! Excellent flavor. So creamy and smooth. So quick to fix! I did not even chill it. Ate some immediately after I fixed it. Delicious!!!

  19. 5 stars
    I made this with and without the almond extract. My family likes it best without the almond extract. I also substituted 1/4 cup organic stevia for the maple syrup to make it Keto friendly. It was delicious!!

  20. 5 stars
    This pudding was so easy to make! To be honest, I didn’t feel the need to refrigerate mine after blending; I used cold avocados and almond milk, so the pudding was cold and was plenty thick enough to eat right away.  It was a bit sweet for my liking, so I would probably cut back the maple syrup to 1/3 cup for the serving size above, but I would definitely make it again!

    Dear Maria,
    This is the BEST and SIMPLEST avocado pudding I have tried! Everyone who has tried it LOVES it! It is my go to when I have avocados that are ripe and need to be used. Creamy, delicious, and satisfying. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe!
