Dark chocolate and orange avocado pudding

Dark chocolate Avocado pudding

Holly molly…….this is just to die for….. you really have to try this dark chocolate pudding.

I actually dislike regular pudding. I have never tried a pudding that I have liked because normally people make it with eggs (which I don’t like) or maybe because they just prepare it from a box, which by the way, I think it tastes just awful!

I was a little bit skeptical using avocados to make pudding but I knew I had to at least give it a go. I do like avocados, and since they are very nutritious I thought this could be a good idea. I just found avocados to be a bit strange when used for something sweet, that’s all :-)

Anyhow, I am really glad I tried it. It is not going to be the last time I actually make this chocolate pudding. Not only it is super easy to put together, but it is healthy and super good for you. My kids really loved it (in spite of the triple sec…..the alcohol flavor was very subtle though)

I got inspired by two of my favorite blogs, food doodles and texanering baking. Go on over and take a look what they did. They also have very beautiful pictures and superb recipes so browse around for a while.

I used dark chocolate cocoa because dark chocolate has healthier properties, like antioxidants but you can use regular cocoa powder if you like. I think next time I make this  chocolate pudding I will make it raspberry flavor :-)

You really need to try this. If you do, let me know….I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Enjoy!!

I used the zest of organic oranges. You don’t need the nasty pesticide residue in your pudding!!

  1. It looks awesome! Great job. :)

    I’ll try your version the next time I have ripe avocados. If you try raspberries next time and use lots of them (like I do) you’ll probably need a lot more sweetener. That’s the bad thing about raspberries.

    Anyway, thanks for the mention. :)

  2. Texanerin,

    I will use some raspberry liquor that I have had for ever and use fresh raspberries. Can’t wait until my avocados turn ripe again :-)

  3. Wow, I love how beautifully dark yours is! That looks incredibly delicious, mine was pretty pale in comparison. I can’t wait to try a raspberry version too :D

  4. I just made chocolate avocado pudding for my first time over the weekend… Sooooo goood!! Love that you added orange in here too.

  5. I love your blog! Your recipes and photos always get my attention and are so drool worthy.

  6. I made it and it was fantastic! I followed it exactly except I left out the triple sec and extract. And I might have added quite a bit of Stevia. :)
