Healthy Chocolate Pudding

Healthy chocolate pudding is a delicious dessert that satisfies your chocolate cravings while also providing some nutritional benefits. Here’s a basic recipe for a healthier version of chocolate pudding:


1 ripe avocado
1 ripe banana
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2-3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
1/4 cup almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
Optional toppings: sliced strawberries, chopped nuts, or a dollop of Greek yogurt


  1. Prepare the avocado: Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop out the flesh.
  2. Blend the ingredients: In a blender or food processor, combine the avocado, ripe banana, unsweetened cocoa powder, honey or maple syrup, almond milk, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Blend until smooth: Process the mixture until it becomes a creamy, smooth pudding-like consistency. You may need to scrape down the sides of the blender or food processor a few times to ensure everything is well combined.
  4. Taste and adjust: Taste the pudding and adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more honey or maple syrup if needed. Blend again to incorporate any additional sweetener.
  5. Chill: Transfer the chocolate pudding to a bowl or individual serving dishes and cover with plastic wrap or lids. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow it to chill and thicken.
  6. Serve: Once chilled, remove the pudding from the refrigerator, and it’s ready to serve. You can garnish it with sliced strawberries, chopped nuts, or a dollop of Greek yogurt for added texture and flavor.

This healthy chocolate pudding is a great alternative to traditional pudding recipes that are loaded with sugar and heavy cream. It’s rich in healthy fats from the avocado, contains natural sweetness from the banana and honey/maple syrup, and is a good source of antioxidants from the cocoa powder. Enjoy this guilt-free treat as an occasional dessert or snack!
