I’ll be the first to admit this sounded strange when I first heard of it but it is awesome. Even if you are an avocado hater (I know they exist but I haven’t figured it out) I really encourage you to give this a try. The texture is smoother and creamier than any dairy-based pudding I’ve ever tasted. Plus it packs on the vitamins, minerals and healthy monounsaturated fat from the avocado and fiber, antioxidants and minerals from the cocoa powder. Jacquie says it had a hint of ripe banana flavor which I agreed with after refrigerating for a day or two. Even though the honey and cocoa make this fairly rich, I guarantee it won’t last long.
We served ours with our CSA strawberries. You could also try adding some banana or other fruit. Some cinnamon would also be good.
