Avocado Chocolate Pudding

We are just crazy for the goodness found inside avocados!  Here's a little go to recipe we use when we are craving something sweet and "chocolatey".

Ingredients
5-6 ripe and ready avocados
1/4 cup milk - or dairy free milk (coconut, almond, soy - whatever you are into)
3-4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder - to taste
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste - to taste
pinch of fine salt
2-3 squares of bittersweet chocolate (70% or higher) (we like the lindt bars)
1/4 pure maple syrup (we use Highland Maple Syrup - from right here in Cape Breton!)

Instructions

  1. Cut and pit avocados and blend in a food processor.
  2. Add the milk, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt: Add the milk, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt - blend till smooth - and transfer to bowl.
  3. Melt chocolate and add to mixture.
  4. Add maple syrup.
  5. Mix.
  6. Add chocolate, syrup or coco to taste.  Can also change consistency by adding more liquid if needed. 
  7. Chill and serve.
  8. Enjoy!
