Creamy Chocolate Avocado Pudding
Prep Time
5 mins
 

This dessert recipe is keto and paleo friendly.

Ingredients
  • 2 Medium Avocados (very ripe)
  • 4-5 Tbsp Cacao or Cocoa Powder
  • 4-5 Tbsp Low Carb Granulated Sweetener (i.e. Monk Fruit, Birch Xylitol, etc.) You can also use a regular granulated sweetener if you're not Keto (i.e. coconut sugar)
  • 2-3 Tbsp High Quality Protein Powder (I use collagen peptides)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt
Instructions
  1. Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. Then, remove the avocado from the skin. Add avocados to a mixing bowl and mash with a fork until most clumps are gone.

  2. Add cacao powder, sweetener, protein powder, vanilla, and sea salt to bowl. Mix well until all ingredients are fully combined. At this point, taste the mixture to see if you want to add more sweetener or cacao powder.

  3. To get the mixture extra smooth like pudding, use an immersion blender to blend until it reaches your desired texture.

  4. Transfer pudding to a storage bowl with a lid and place in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, stir the mixture, add your favorite healthy toppings and ENJOY!

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the almond butter, egg, and vanilla. Using an electric hand mixture, cream everything together until combined.

  3. Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix again using your hands.

Recipe Notes

For the low carb sweetener, I like to use either granulated Monk Fruit or Birch Xylitol.  Also, if you have time, go ahead and powder the sweetener in a coffee grinder because a powdered sweetener yields an even better taste with the cookies.
