How To Make Chocolate Pudding

If you have ripe avocados, you have pudding! Add the avocado meat to a blender with unsweetened cacao, maple syrup, vanilla extract, orange juice, and hot tea or coffee.

In the cookbook I used hot coffee, but in a recent video with Rose I used herbal chamomile and mint tea, and it was even better!

Blend everything until well combined and serve. If you let it sit in the fridge for 3 hours, or overnight, the flavors get better!

    1. Hi Kay, you can user vanilla extract or paste. Regarding the juice, it will be best with orange juice as it is sweeter. But if you only have lemons, use less as it is more acidic.
