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.


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

  1. I’ve made blueberry cornmeal muffins before but I’m sure they weren’t on the healthy side. LOL
    I bet cranberries and some orange zest would be yummy in these! Or maybe some cranberries added to the honey orange cake!
    I’m loving the cornmeal recipes.
    I buy cornmeal by the 5 lb. bag and keep the extra in the freezer like I do flour that I know I’m not going to use up right away. I’ve also just kept it on the pantry shelf in an airtight container for long periods of time and it was fine.

  2. Patti,

    Thanks for the suggestion on storing the cornmeal. I actually only bought 1 lb but I am thinking I may buy bigger next time and store it like you suggested since I am liking this recipes a bunch :-)

    Let me know how the rustic apple cake turns out
