This pudding is the best healthy pudding you will ever have! It is rich, creamy, and indulgent. Best of all, it is healthy! A treat for sure, but still, very healthy. When I first started making this recipe, I seriously almost cried when I tasted just how good it is. I made it for all my friends, and practically fed it to them with a spoon as they walked through my door. They never saw it coming. Needless to say, I have turned many of my friends (and clients) on to this special dessert. I wouldn’t normally serve it in this fancy wine glass, but I thought, hey, why not? I serve it in pretty bowls and glasses for special occasions, (birthdays and holidays) and in regular cups or small ramekins for a quick week night dessert.

I always make more than I think I will need, because half of it disappears before it even comes out of the blender into the pretty bowls. Hmmm, I wonder where it all goes?chocolate avocado pudding

coconutwhippedcream1The whipped cream on top is the real kicker here. Coconut whipped cream… yes, it’s the bomb! And since we do not eat dairy, this is the best replacement. In fact, I enjoy this much more than traditional whipped cream. It is smoother, creamier and has an amazing flavor. You HAVE to try it! But until then, here is the recipe for chocolate (avocado) pudding. ENJOY!
