Delicious 5 Minute Chocolate Pudding (Vegan)

This pudding is so easy to make. It is made of simple, wholesome ingredients without sacrificing flavor or taste.

I believe healthy fats are critically important in one’s diet. Although my four year old loves to eat, she never sits down for long–she’s always off to dance, do a puzzle, you name it! I try to make sure what she eats is packed with fiber, healthy fats and protein–even when she is eating dessert. I loved making this recipe with my daughter as she got so excited that she was going to make pudding with an avocado.

Avocados are loaded with Vitamin C, fiber, potassium and healthy fats. Coconut milk provides lauric acid, a superb immune booster that is often missing in the foods we eat today. Raw cacao powder provides iron, magnesium and protein. To top it off dates are rich in B Vitamins and fiber. So treat yourself today to this tasty pudding!

Add to Vitamix or Blender:

1 can coconut milk (this brand is BPA free)
1 large avocado
1/3 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup coconut sugar
4 dates (soaked in 1 cup of water for 30 minutes)
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. sea salt

Remove pits from dates. Blend on high for 3 minutes. Scoop into serving dishes. Enjoy!
It is also good chilled after being stored in the refrigerator.

Makes 4 servings.

  1. Dam, I would make it but it has avocado in it and I'm allergic! 🙁 It sounds and looks delish!

  2. Oh bummer Jen, I would go crazy if I couldn't eat avocado! You can make the pudding without the avocado. It probably won't be quite as creamy, but still really yummy!

  3. I agree laura, I adore avocado! And avocado puddings are so awesome too…no one ever guesses they're in there! If Jen leaves out the avocado, it will be thin, but banana could work to thicken…maybe fresh chunks of coconut or coconut butter too. Just an idea! I think I might just go make this, sound so good and I am having a crazy sweet tooth right now thank to you…I think I will try w/ stevia…

  4. Great suggestions Tessa! I think I will make this next time and try the coconut butter idea to compare. Hope you got a chance to make a stevia chocolate pudding!

  5. Hi Laura,

    Great suggestions Tessa!

    Ground chia is also a fantastic thickener. Two tablespoons will replace the avocado. And pumpkin puree is an amazing thickener. Any squash will do (even sweet potatoes). Chocolate is so overpowering, you can throw just about anything in there and it will be delicious! 🙂

  6. Very true! I think I am going to try the pumpkin puree as well. I have some leftover pumpkin to use up and that sounds amazing combined with chocolate!

  7. Delicious pudding love this one. Thanks for sharing with Hearth and soul blog hop.

  8. Looks good. It's wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays!
