Coconut Chocolate Avocado Pudding

This recipe I’ve adapted from my earlier blog on Avocado Pudding from Living Well Kitchens recipe Avocado Pudding.  I really liked the pudding but wanted to see if I can make it better.  Here’s the recipe as I’ve made it this time.  You can click on the links above to get the original.

Ingredients (Serves 3-4)


Add all the ingredients to a food processor in the order listed leaving out the almonds and the coconut, starting with the avocado and ending with the salt.

Blend until completely smooth. If it is too thick for your taste, add a little milk or water {tablespoon at a time} until it reaches your desired consistency.  Pour into a serving bowl, stir in the almonds and the coconut, saving a few almonds to sprinkle on top.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Now, I really liked the original recipe, but my hubby and I both like coconut and what better to accompany it with than dark chocolate, and then almonds!  So I made this with the almonds and the organic shredded coconut, it was good, not great.  My hubby didn’t like the texture, I had not problem with the texture, but the taste just wasn’t there.  The chocolate over powered the coconut.  But at least it was good for us!

So, don’t worry, I’m going to do this again,  I’m going to forgo the organic shredded coconut and use sweetened coconut and add coconut extract to the mix.  I’m also going to rough chop the almonds that I mix in the pudding, keep a few whole for garnish.  So, stay tuned for take 2!
