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".
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!)
- Cut and pit avocados and blend in a food processor.
- Add the milk, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt: Add the milk, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt - blend till smooth - and transfer to bowl.
- Melt chocolate and add to mixture.
- Add maple syrup.
- Add chocolate, syrup or coco to taste. Can also change consistency by adding more liquid if needed.
- Chill and serve.
