Prep Notes

This pudding gets its creaminess from avocado and nuts.  It can be whipped up in no time whenever you're yearning for a chocolate dessert.


3-4 Servings


  • 1/2 large avocado (moderately ripe)
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 dates, soaked, seeds removed
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extractpinch of salt


  • Blend all the ingredients in a blender.  A high speed blender works best, but any blender will do.
  • Run the blender long enough and you'll have hot pudding!


If doubling-make one batch at a time due to thickness.
