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.


  • 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


  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.
