It is such an honor to be part of the Spiritual Adrenaline Holiday Dessert Guide. I appreciate Tom Shanahan for the opportunity to share my simple, healthy desserts with you. This Chocolate Avocado Pudding was one of the first “good-for-us” desserts I learned to make with “healthy ingredients.”  I invite you to experiment with this pudding and I have a feeling you might enjoy it long after the holidays.

Excerpt from A New View of Healthy Eating: Chocolate Avocado Pudding (page 166)

Incredible, rich, and creamy vegan chocolate pudding will delight everyone. Make it for dessert or an after-work or after-school snack. Once you’ve made this avocado pudding, experiment by adding some extras, such as bananas, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, homemade nut milk, and freshly ground spices, like cinnamon and nutmeg.

SIMPLE INGREDIENTS

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 8 Medjool dates, pitted and sliced
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or 2 vanilla beans, scraped
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder
  • 2 cups water

SIMPLE STEPS

  1. Place all ingredients in high-speed blender.
  2. Blend on high for about 2 minutes.
  3. Stop and scrape down sides of blender, if needed.
  4. Blend for another 2 minutes or until completely pureed and smooth.
  5. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  6. Enjoy topped with fresh fruit, nuts, and seeds.
