Delicious. Decadent. Unbelievable. Chocolate. Addictive. Healthy!

I can’t take complete credit for this recipe (I found it on Vegan Coach) but I’m sure I’m a gourmet genius in my daughter’s eyes. Who would have thought avocado and a few other ingredients could make such a delicious, decadent, dessert? It sounds odd, but I swear it’s fabulous, and it’s made with ingredients that pack some great nutrients and powerful antioxidants!

Avocados contain “folate, potassium, vitamin E, lutein, and consist of monounsaturated fat” (A 2 Z of Health and Beauty, 2010). The other key ingredient, cocoa, “contains large amounts of antioxidants. Cocoa and dark chocolate may keep high blood pressure down and reduce the blood’s ability to clot, thus the risk of stroke and heart attacks may be reduced” (Cacoaweb, 2010, paragraph 1).

Here’s the chocolate avocado pudding recipe. Of course my daughter helped make it. It’s a fantastic recipe to prepare with young children!

I altered this recipe slightly. I eliminated the cinnamon and salt, as the recipe has a more authentic chocolate flavour without it. I also reduced the amount of vanilla.

    Hey Jennifer this does look yummy. I have some recipes on my blog too, some with egg and nuts though which wouldn’t be good for you guys. We’re lucky because last year a vegan cafe opened up in our neighbourhood. I’m not sure if you live in a city or small town but I hope you’ve found some local options too.
