3 ingredients that come together in 2 minutes, this Paleo Chocolate Pudding is a good-for-you sweet treat packed with healthy fats and antioxidants.
Do you know what holiday is coming up?!? To some it isn’t a real holiday, but it’s on the calendar so I’ll count it. It’s Valentine’s Day!! How excited (or not excited are you)?! Personally I could go either way. I doesn’t really do too much for me. I would much rather celebrate love year round with little things than on one day with something big. But it is an good excuse to eat some tasty food and chocolate, and I’m all about that.
Michael and I aren’t really that big in doing things for Valentine’s Day. The first few years we dated we were long distance so Michael would usually send me flowers to work. We would maybe celebrate with a dinner when we saw each other next, but nothing too crazy. Two years ago we made a nice dinner at home and I think last year we went to the farmers market since that is what I wanted to do. Sounds about right to me haha.
Either you love the holiday or you hate it, but you can still celebrate by eating some chocolate! And you can still stay on track while doing it. Chocolate pudding used to be one of my favorite snacks growing up. My mom would buy those snack packs and I would eat them after school. Pretty sure I can’t pronounce the ingredients in them now, but I remember them being real good. That’s where this paleo chocolate pudding comes in! You might be thinking why would you mix chocolate and avocado together, but trust me!
This pudding comes together in under two minutes and is only 3 ingredients! Throw the ingredients into your Vitamix and voila, chocolate pudding! I used Dulcis Mexican Cacao almond milk, but if you aren’t local to Austin, feel free to use another chocolate almond milk or regular almond milk + more cacao. It tastes best cold so either put your avocado in the fridge before making it or let it chill afterwards!
- 1 large avocado, deseeded (180 grams)
- ¼ cup Dulcis Mexican Cacao almond milk*
- 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
- optional toppings: fresh/frozen fruit, coconut shreds, cacao nibs...
- Add all ingredients in the order listed to a Vitamix or high powdered blender. Blend until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
- Either eat as is or chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Top with optional toppings.
Thanks so much Dulcis Milks for providing me with some product and helping make this post possible!
