Nutella Banana Pudding

Nutella Banana Pudding

Everybody loves the rich and nutty flavour of Nutella. My kids definitely share my love for it! This Nutella banana pudding is a decadent albeit nutritious treat that I can feel good about feeding the kids since it’s loaded with potassium-rich bananas and healthy fats from the creamy avocados.

This recipe is foolproof and cannot be an easier to prepare. It requires only 3 ingredients to prepare, with a few add-ins, if desired. All you need is a ripe banana and equally ripe avocado and a dollop of Nutella. Although it is optional, the addition of extra virgin coconut oil lends a buttery richness to this pudding and not to mention another healthy dose of heart-healthy omega 3-fatty acids.

The degree of sweetness of this pudding will depend solely on the ripeness of the banana you use. In fact, the riper, the better. If the banana is super-sweet you can omit the additional maple syrup, although it does add a delicious depth of flavour. If you don’t care much for maple syrup simply substitute it with raw honey, or organic brown rice syrup.

I tend to make this pudding very often since I always have ripe bananas and avocado on hand. It literally takes minutes to make and the kids devour it. Don’t have any Nutella in the pantry? Alternative nut butters such as almond and peanut butter tastes just as good and add the same nutty flavour and creamy consistency as the Nutella.

This is best served chilled but is just as delicious served at room temperature. Garnish with fresh bananas and another dollop of Nutella. Serve within one day of preparation.

    Confession: I’ve never tried Nutella! I hear it’s amazing, but I would have never thought to use avacados to make pudding! I think that’s something I may have to try out here in the near future. I wonder if you could sub out the banana for something else though because I’m not a big fan…

    This sounds fabulous. I adore nutella and avocado. I’d love to try this.

    This is perfect! I have started going to the gym, and keep getting this banana peanut butter chocolate smoothie. It has a lot of powders, a tiny bit of banana, and almond milk. I love that this seems like it will taste similar, but has natural ingredients! We always have bananas and avocados around here!

  • Seriously yummy! I can have all these ingredients too! (I am on a weird intolerance diet these days!)

  • I’m loving this idea. I should try to make this with my daughter. That combo sounds greaty.

  • adriana nudo 7 years ago

    I love banana pudding, but I think I might be the only person in the world who has never tried Nutella! The addition of the avocado seems a bit strange to me but I would be willing to try it. It sounds (and looks) very intriguing!

    I love avocado pudding and making ice cream out of bananas so I have a feeling I will just adore this!

  • Wow! And you did it in a coconut shell! I’m very impressed, I wonder how much you taste the avocado in it. I do love avocado, but not sure I’d like to taste a whole lot of it in pudding.

  • Eileen Mendoza Loya 7 years ago

    The versatility of avocado at its best! All these ingredients definitely would make a delicious pudding! Loved the presentation – pudding served in a coconut shell.

    What an interesting pudding. I have never thought about adding avocado to my pudding. What a great way to add vitamins

  • Helena 7 years ago

    And I thought I had successfully talked myself out of Nutella. Now I’ve gotta go buy a jar just so I can try this oh-so-healthy recipe! It’s Vegan, so of course it’s healthy, right????

    • Lol!! I’ve tried that in the past…it didn’t work! The thing I hate about Nutella is that it’s so pricey and it literally lasts less than a week in my house!

  • Jeanette 7 years ago

    This looks very interesting. I’m not a huge fan of avocado but I am a huge fan of chocolate, so I need to try the mix together.

  • I love Nutella but I want to eat it the healthy way so I have got to try this vegan recipe! Thanks for sharing!

  • Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle 7 years ago

    That looks so yummy. I love the avocado base to make it extra creamy and extra good for me!
