I have a confession. I don’t love avocado. That’s not to say I hate it because really avocado doesn’t taste like anything. There’s something about the texture though. I just can never eat it on its own. I guess some people are adverse to certain textures and avocado is my adversity.
Suffice to say, it’s pretty unlikely you’ll ever find me eating an avocado on its own. Either it has to be in the form of guacamole or hidden in something else for me to muster up the strength to eat it like this Chocolate Avocado Pudding!

How is this chocolate pudding better for you
If you’ve ever bought pudding at the store and looked at the ingredients, you may have scratched your head wondering what exactly was in it.
This chocolate pudding has no artificial ingredients. No natural ingredients (*natural* isn’t really natural – that’s marketing).
This is chocolate pudding recipe is also WAY lower in sugar than other recipes. We’re using REAL honey in this recipe. I don’t recommend subbing anything other than real maple syrup or stevia. Artificial sugars are not recommended for a variety of reasons which I talk about in this post.
Now I know some of you will say there’s too much fat in the recipe. There’s not. This recipe is nutritionally balanced. Fat increases fullness, stabilizes blood sugar, balances hormones and is necessary for proper hormone and brain function.
The fat in this recipe is coming from avocados which is low in saturated fat and high in monounsaturated fat. This particular type of fat is shown to be the best kind you can eat.
Remember, not all fat is created equal. Just like not all sugar is either so eat up!
