Avocado Chocolate Protein Pudding

avocado protein pudding recipe

If you love dark chocolate, this decadent dessert will not disappoint! It’s rich. It’s creamy. And thanks to Mama Love Chocolate Protein and avocado, it could almost be called healthy. (Just squint when you read the “Total Sugars” line in the nutrition facts below.)

Avocados are crazy-nutritious! They offer 20 different vitamins and minerals (1), and loads of fiber and heart-healthy, unsaturated fat. Plus, those who include avocados in their meals, are less likely to be overweight and more likely to have healthier diets overall (2).

Back to the sweet-talk: This recipe calls for maple syrup, but you could use agave nectar, brown rice syrup, or the powdered white stuff (confectioners’ sugar) instead. I actually considered dialing the sweetness down, but my husband talked me out of it. Feel free to use half of the maple syrup, blend everything together, and give it a taste before adding in the rest, if you like.

Ingredients 

  • 2 medium Avocados
  • 1/3 cup Mama Love Chocolate Protein
  • ¼ cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup
  • ¼ cup Brewed Coffee, chilled
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave; heat for 30 seconds, stir, then heat for another 15 to 30 seconds. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. If the pudding is too thick, add another tablespoon of chilled coffee. Place in the fridge until you’re ready to eat. Makes 4 servings.
