Pudding is such a yummy treat, and I’m going to show you how to make a healthier version that is packed with avocado!

Pudding is one of those timeless treats that both kids and adults love. And when it comes to introducing your little one to the world of desserts, what could be better than a creamy, chocolatey pudding? Today, I’m excited to share a recipe that’s not only incredibly yummy but also a healthier version of the classic chocolate pudding. Best of all, this recipe makes just enough for your little one to enjoy and for you to savor a spoonful too! If your toddler has a sweet tooth for chocolate, this Chocolate Avocado Pudding is sure to become a household favorite.

Why Chocolate Avocado Pudding Is Great for Little Ones

  1. Healthier Ingredients: Unlike traditional chocolate puddings loaded with sugar and artificial additives, this recipe uses an avocado as its base. Avocado is rich in healthy fats, fiber, and essential nutrients.
  2. Natural Sweetener: The use of honey or maple syrup adds natural sweetness to the pudding without the need for refined sugars.
  3. Nutrient-Packed: Cocoa powder not only provides the rich chocolate flavor but also offers antioxidants and essential minerals.
  4. Customizable: You can easily adapt this recipe to suit your toddler’s preferences, including using dairy-free milk if needed.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2-3 tbsp Honey (for toddlers 1 year and up) or Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract (consider alcohol-free vanilla if preferred)
  • 2 tbsp Milk (use dairy-free milk as needed)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Avocado: Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into a blender or food processor.
  2. Add Ingredients: To the blender, add the unsweetened cocoa powder, honey (or maple syrup), vanilla extract, and milk.
  3. Blend: Blend all the ingredients until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender to ensure all the ingredients are well incorporated.
  4. Taste and Adjust: Taste the pudding and adjust the sweetness if necessary by adding more honey or maple syrup.
  5. Serve: Spoon the chocolate avocado pudding into small serving dishes or baby-friendly containers.
  6. Chill: For a cooler treat, refrigerate the pudding for about 30 minutes before serving.

Substitutions:

  • Honey: If you prefer not to use honey, or you have a baby under 1, you can substitute it with maple syrup.
  • Milk: Use any dairy-free milk of your choice, such as almond milk, soy milk, or coconut milk, as needed to achieve the desired consistency.

Storage:

You can store any leftover Chocolate Avocado Pudding in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Simply cover it with plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container to keep it fresh.

    Absolutely delicious! Perfect consistency of “traditional” pudding but zero guilt! I substituted oat milk, used 3 tablespoons since it’s thinner, and it turned out great! So excited to have this healthy sweet treat option, thanks!
