Chocolate Avocado Pudding
Cook time
Total time
Cuisine: raw vegan
Serves: 2
  • 1 fully ripe and soft avocado
  • ¾ cup dates
  • 2½ Tbs raw cacao powder
  • ½ cup water or the soak water from the dates
  • A dash of vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  1. If your dates are firm, soak them in water until they become soft, about 1 hour.
  2. Add all the ingredients into the food processor, and blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer into a bowl or glass of your choice. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
Please make sure to use a fully ripe and soft avocado. If you use an under ripe one, it might taste bitter. If you end up with an under ripe avocado, add some maple syrup to improve the flavor. But please do the best you can to use the fully ripe and soft one to do justice to this recipe.

You can eat it straight away without refrigeration, if you'd like.

Feel free to top it with fruits, nuts, coconut flakes, cacao nibs, whatever you fancy!
