A decadent dark chocolate keto avocado pudding that’s sure to satisfy any chocolate craving. So rich with perfect pudding texture, you’d never guess it includes avocados!
Ready for a rich, delicious pudding that is paleo-friendly, packed with healthy fats, and takes less than 5 minutes to make? I have just the recipe for you.
I always wanted to make avocado chocolate pudding keto. Avocado puddings have been around for awhile, but many still include sugars or sweeteners that are not low carb. So I started dreaming of a keto version.
Avocado puddings have also gotten a bit of a bad reputation. This is because some recipes don’t have the right ingredients to outshine the avocado flavor. No matter how much you love avocado, a bad avocado pudding can turn you off right away.
But I knew that with the right flavor combination, keto chocolate avocado pudding could be a decadent treat for those on keto diets.
Creating the best chocolate avocado pudding
The key is using the avocados for texture but not letting them impact the taste. So I needed ingredients that would create a big, bold chocolate taste.
The result? A pudding that can satisfy any chocolate craving that you would NEVER guess is actually good for you!
Antioxidants from the dark cocoa plus healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber from the avocado make this a truly guilt-free treat.
This may be one of my favorite pudding recipes. And the fact that it only takes a few ingredients and steps to prepare makes it even better.
How to make keto avocado pudding
- Start with two soft and very ripe avocados. This recipe will not work with avocados that are not ripe yet, because they will not give us the right texture.
- Cut avocados in half, remove the pit from each, then use a spoon to scrape the flesh out into a blender or food processor.
- Add almond milk, unsweetened cocoa powder, stevia drops, vanilla extract, and instant espresso powder to the blender or food processor.
- Process together until the ingredients are well combined into a creamy texture. You want to keep processing until there are no more avocado lumps.
- Divide into four dessert dishes, then cover and refrigerate.
- Serve chilled and enjoy!
Use dark cocoa for the best keto avocado chocolate pudding
To get a rich chocolate flavor, I recommend using dark cocoa for this pudding. Personally, I like the taste much better. You’ll get all of the chocolate flavor and won’t even be able to tell there’s avocado in the pudding.
The color is also wonderful. The keto avocado chocolate pudding will be really dark and dreamy. We eat with our eyes first, so I believe color is important.
To me, dark cocoa tastes much better than regular cocoa. I’ve made puddings with regular cocoa, and now I’m thinking of going back and remaking them with dark cocoa instead.
This recipe also has the option to add instant espresso powder. As I mentioned, I wanted to achieve a very bold chocolate flavor. Espresso is known for enhancing chocolate flavor, so I knew it would be perfect in this recipe.
If you have espresso powder on hand, I would recommend using it. It will really add to the richness of the chocolate.
For superior color and taste in this keto chocolate avocado pudding, I strongly advise using dark cocoa. You’ll be so happy with the end result!
Want to take your keto avocado chocolate pudding to the next level? Here are a few delicious ideas:
- Top it off! Sprinkle on a few of my homemade sugar free chocolate chips or sugar free peanut butter chips over your pudding… you could even try both.
- Add sauces or syrups. I recommend drizzling with peanut butter topping or sugar free caramel sauce for a truly yummy treat.
- You can never go wrong with some fresh whipped cream.
- Use the pudding as a layer in a caramel chocolate trifle! Start with a batch of my 5 Ingredient Keto Brownies, cut into 1 inch cubes. Lay half of the cubes on the bottom of a trifle dish or large glass bowl. Layer whipped cream, chocolate avocado pudding, and sugar free caramel sauce, then repeat the layers to finish the trifle.
