An alternative 'good for you' chocolate pudding


  • 1 ripe peeled avocado
  • ½ to ¾ cup water (start with a ½ cup and add more if needed to blend)
  • 3 tablespoons raw unsweetened cacao powder
  • 8 chopped pitted dates
  • Dash of vanilla extract


  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender.
  2. Serve chilled.
The avocado has excellent fats, the dates add some natural sweetness and fiber. The raw unsweetened cacao is packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. 

For a change, you could substitute blended coconut milk or almond milk for the water, or add a pinch of ground cinnamon. You could also top it with pistachio or other nuts.
