Looking for a brain-building, energy-boosting snack that won’t leave you hangry in an hour? This Whipped Avocado Chocolate Pudding has everything you need in it to help get you through your afternoon slump or kick a sweet tooth to the curb after dinner. Plus it actually has the taste and texture of chocolate pudding, which kids love!
Whipped Avocado Chocolate Pudding
2 Large Ripe Hass Avocados
1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 tsp Coconut Aminos (gluten free soy sauce, or tamari work as well)
1 – 2 Tbsp Maple syrup (or for a less sweet option, substitute 2 medjool dates)
¼ cup Raw Cacao
¼ – ½ cup Coconut Milk (cashew & almond milk work great as well)
3 scoops of Collagen (this is optional BUT I highly recommend it, if vegan choose a Vegan Collagen or omit)
2 Tbsp Reshi Mushroom Powder Extract OR Ashwagandha (this will add to the calming/hormone balancing effect)
- Place all ingredients, except coconut milk, into a high-speed blender that has a tamper or into a food processor. Add ¼ cup coconut milk and start processing. Using the tamper, begin pushing down and creating air pockets. Add more coconut milk when mixture starts to have difficulty blending.
- Once everything is completely mixed and you have reached your desired consistency/texture (I like mine on the thick side) use a spatula to scoop the mixture out into a bowl to be chilled about 20-30 minutes before being stored or eating right away.
- Add toppings like fresh berries, coconut flakes, granola, kiwi, or any other fruit to make it extra special!
This recipe makes four ⅓ cup servings and will last in the fridge in a sealed glass container for up to 4 days.
