This Vegan Chunky Monkey Chocolate Pudding is made with super creamy with avocado!
About four years ago, when I first started discovering food blogs, I found a recipe for vegan chocolate pudding using the most unusual of ingredients: avocado. Intrigued, and excited for the possibility of having a healthier treat to serve my toddler, I gave it a try.
I’ve been hooked on the creamy, delectable dessert ever since. I’ve made it many ways: sweetened with everything from dates, to honey, to maple syrup. I’ve added sweet potato to the mix.
By far, though, the recipe I’m sharing with you today is our favorite version. It takes the creamy chocolate pudding to a new level with the addition of banana and peanut butter (or any nut butter you choose).
Don’t worry about the avocado. You don’t taste it, but it lends the super-creamy texture that makes this pudding as good as any dairy version. Even better, this ultra-healthy dessert can be prepared in less than 5 minutes. A mom’s dream.
Healthy is such a relative term. This vegan pudding fits my definition of healthy without a doubt because it is more than just empty calories. The combination of avocado, banana, and peanut butter make this full of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.
If you have a nut allergy or don’t like peanut butter, it’s easy to leave the nut butter (and/or the banana) out of the mix and you’ll have a plain chocolate pudding that is also incredible.
If you have a blender (or food processor) and 5 minutes, give this recipe a whirl. If your family is anything like mine, they will adore it! Here’s a video showing you just how easy it is:Print
