Avocado Pudding

I LOVE avocados!! I love them in any form, unfortunately, my boys don't. The only way they like them is in guacamole. So I try to sneak then in whenever I can. One way to do that is by making a dessert out of them. Yes, you heard it right, a dessert! They are so creamy that when they are blended with the right ingredients, you hardly notice them!

This morning I served the boys yogurt with granola and frozen raspberries. Since I am not eating yogurt. (I actually don't like yogurt!), I made something called "Live Chocolate Mousse". A recipe that was featured in this months Vegetarian Times magazine. I topped it with walnuts, frozen raspberries, and granola. It was soooo good! Give it a try, you won't be dissappointed!

Live Chocolate Mousse
Vegetarian Times

3 avocados

1/4 c. plus 3 tbs. agave nectar

1/4 cup plus 2 tbs cocoa powder

3 tbs almond butter

1 tsp lemon juice

pinch of cinnamon

Puree all ingredients in food processor 3 to 4 minutes or until smooth and creamy, scraping down sides as necessary.

I have made other versions of this type of dessert, but I like this one best because it doesn't have any sugar.



  1. I have everything on hand, but the agave nectar. Sounds yummy!

  2. I love avocados too! What's funny is that I'm a native Californian, and had never heard of using avocados in a dessert until yesterday when I stumbled onto a recipe for avocado pie. Now you are sharing a recipe avocado pudding! I must admit, I'm a bit skeptical, but I'll have to try it! :o)
