Should I even begin with how healthy avocado is for you? Don't be scared of the fat - the good fat that is! Which is what avocado is most known for. Coming in with 15 grams of healthy fats, only 2 net carbs, vitamins such as K, C, B%, B6, E, folate, and potassium makes it a powerhouse of fruit - yes it is technically a fruit!
It is truly a magical day when you open your avocado and it looks like this! So buttery and creamy! A perfect companion for this chocolate pudding recipe without all the dairy and added sugar. The key is to use the right chocolate - one that you love to begin with. I always go for Enjoy Life chocolate chips as they are dairy & soy free and the mini chips can be used in anything requiring chocolate in my book!
Unsweetened cocoa is a staple in my pantry for all things baking with chocolate. I also added in chia seeds for another nutritional boost - I mean why not! With just a touch of sweetness from honey or stevia, this is a yummy alternative to its counterpart.
I like to add a few chocolate chips on top before serving or you can shave some chocolate from a bar that you have stashed away (I like to believe that we all do somewhere!)
I am trying to pass this off to my kids as regular chocolate pudding but they know too well that I would never serve regular treats in the house. I always have a healthy twist to them - but they taste just as good if not better!
