An easy paleo dark chocolate avocado pudding recipe that tastes great. It’s a tasty way to sneak in some healthy fat into the diet.
There are so many recipes on my list to try that I doubt I will ever get to all of them. I don’t keep an official list, but I am always adding recipes to a database on my computer when I see something I’d like to make.
Not all the recipes on my list are low carb. Many are high carb recipes that I want to tweak to make healthier.
I have seen a few paleo chocolate avocado pudding recipes. It’s something I’ve always wanted to try it.
There were two very ripe avocados sitting on my kitchen counter that needed to be eaten. So, I finally made some of the pudding this week.
I do love avocados, but I don’t always buy them. It’s always been hit or miss on getting good ones.
Avocados are great to just cut up and add to a salad. That was my original intention when I bought these.
However, they weren’t completely ripe when I purchased them and by the time I checked them for ripeness, they were slightly overripe.
The texture seemed perfect for making a chocolate avocado pudding recipe. To keep the recipe paleo friendly, I used a liquid stevia extract as the sweetener.
One of the recipes I bookmarked was at Maria Mind Body Health. However, Maria used Swerve which isn’t a good Paleo sweetener because of the processing used to make erythritol.
To get a rich chocolate flavor, I used dark cocoa. I like the taste better and also color. You can’t even tell there’s avocado in the pudding.
This was such a simple recipe to make. And, I found it had a much better taste than the tofu pudding I’ve made.
I used regular cocoa in the tofu pudding recipe which isn’t as rich as dark cocoa. I also added some instant espresso powder to this chocolate avocado pudding which helps bring out the chocolate flavor.
To me, the dark cocoa tastes much better than the regular kind. And, I may try making the tofu pudding again using dark cocoa and espresso powder to see if it makes a difference.
