Sneaky Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Isabel Essen Healthy Eats_Avocado Chocolate Pudding

You think “Avocado Chocolate Pudding” sounds gross? ;) Wait until you’ve tried it… I promise you would never guess this sneaky ingredient in one of our favourite chocolate desserts!

Yes, I admit, I could eat avocados in pretty much everything, in every form or shape… From enjoying a good helping on my toast for lunch, through making salads even more delicious and even topping pizza with a few slices of raw avo goodness.

Avocados, high in unsaturated, healthy fats, are a versatile addition to our daily diet and I love to come up with new ways of including them in savoury as well as sweet dishes.

As this recipe combines two of my food loves – avocado AND raw chocolate – it is certainly one of my favourite ones and has been secretly dished up to many friends and family members at dinner parties in our house.

Sneaky Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Author: Recipe by Isabel Essen - Healthy Eats (


  • 2 Avocados
  • 1 Ripe banana
  • 1 Tbsp Crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut oil
  • 2 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 7 Tbsp Raw cocoa powder
  • 3,5 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Water


  1. Peel the avocados and the banana.
  2. Add all ingredients into a food processor and mix until well combined.
  3. Scrape down the sides of the food processor in between when necessary.
  4. Blend until the texture is smooth and creamy - add more water for a creamier outcome.
  5. Serve with fresh fruit or fruit salad of your choice - berries, mango, banana, peaches and pears work very well.


If you don't like the slight banana taste, leave it out and adjust the honey to your liking.

Make sure you dish up small portions to begin with. The avocado makes this chocolatey goodness nice and rich and will fill you up before you know it!
