My son was eager to learn how to make a pudding. So, I chose this quick and easy chocolate avocado pudding recipe for him to try out.
This pudding has a unique combination of two star ingredients – avocado and chocolate. Avocado is a superfood rich in healthy fats and has many essential vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin B5, vitamin K, fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and potassium). Chocolate contains antioxidant flavonoids (called flavanols) which are good for heart. This pudding is so nutrient-dense that you can eat more without guilt.
This is a very versatile pudding with many alternatives to make it. Milk can be either dairy or non-dairy. If you don’t consume dairy milk, go for non-dairy milk such as soya milk or almond milk. For sweetener, the type and amount can be varied to suit individual preference. Gelatin powder can be reduced or increased depending on the consistency you desire. More gelatin powder will yield a firmer texture; lesser will yield a softer texture.
Making this pudding was a breeze. It only took half an hour (or maybe less once you have mastered the skill!) from preparing the puddings to sending them to the fridge for chilling. My son made the pudding all by himself (it’s his maiden effort!) while I was around just to supervise. He had such a fun time doing his so called “science experiment”. The two of us (I suddenly felt like I’m back to school!) was so excited and amazed at how avocado and chocolate can be transformed into a delicious dessert by using a few simple ingredients.
The puddings turned out so scrumptious, chocolatey, not too sweet, thick and creamy!! The avocados were not noticeable at all. The cocoa taste was so rich that you could not taste the avocados unless you were a food expert. To give the puddings a more refined touch, I had garnished them with some chopped pistachios and toasted coconut flakes. It is optional but will definitely bring a different level of flavour and texture to this dessert. You may even try other creative ways to dress up this dessert or just enjoy it plain.
This pudding was a hit among my family including my hubby who hardly showed any interest in avocado. He adored this chocolatey pudding so much that he wanted to have more. He even asked me to make this more often. Do you think avocado hater will accept and love this pudding? I think the probability is high. Give it a try.
This pudding makes a great Valentine’s Day treat. If you make them in a heart-shaped ramekin, you may impress your loved one even more on this special day.
