Everyone needs some chocolate once in a while. This delicious pudding only requires three ingredients, and it’s a great remedy for chocolate cravings! With my wonderful Cuisinart food processor, this pudding came together in less than five minutes, and you would never know it contains a secret ingredient: avocado!
My friend brought back a bucket giant avocados from home, and they all ripened at the same time earlier this week, so we were looking for things to do with avocados. This fit the bill! The avocado provides the pudding its smooth, creamy texture, and the use of powdered sugar instead of granulated prevents it from being grainy. You can adjust the amount of powdered sugar you use based on how intense you want your chocolate flavor. If you don’t tell people there’s avocado in this, they’ll never know the difference! My roommates all said they could only tell because they knew about the avocado. I made it and I couldn’t tell, so I’m quite pleased with this recipe. Here’s a slightly healthier way to get your chocolate fix for the day!
