Sugar-free Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Looking for a sweet treat and the comforting smoothness of rich chocolate pudding? Look no further!

This delicious, sugar free pudding is better than any store bought version and I prefer it to any homemade sugar filled pudding I have ever tasted. Bonus: it’s SIMPLE to make.


2 ripe avocados

3/4 cup cocoa

Approx. 15 dates

1 cup brewed coffee

1/4 cup nut or seed butter (I used pumpkin seed butter)

1/4-1/2 cup of your preferred milk

1 tsp cinnamon

Optional: Fruit, nuts or seeds and coconut cream or whipped cream for garnish.

Place dates in a flat bottomed dish or directly into your blender as I do (less cleanup) and pour enough hot coffee to cover (use decaf if you’re concerned about caffeine). 

When dates have been soaking up the coffee for at least 15 minutes, put the avocado, nut/seed butter, cinnamon and cocoa into the blender with the dates and coffee and blend on high until everything is well incorporated. It may not be totally smooth yet and the consistency will likely be quite thick. (I use Blendtec. Vitamix would work the same.  With these two brands the dates only need about 15 minutes to soak. If your blender is not as effective, I would recommend soaking the dates for an hour or more to ensure your pudding ends up smooth).

Add milk slowly until pudding is desired consistency and keep blending until smooth. I used about a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of coconut milk to get a nice thick, smooth pudding.

If you prefer a sweeter pudding, you could add raw honey or pure maple syrup to taste.

Pour into small dishes or cups, cover and refrigerate for about an hour before serving.

Add fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, coconut, coconut cream or whipped cream if desired.

Would also be a delicious party dip for cut fruit!
