Have you ever made your own pudding? It is unbelievably easy and quick to make. This vegan chocolate pudding requires no cooking time, takes only 5 minutes to prepare and is packed with goodness!
This version might be dairy-free and super healthy but it is every bit as rich, creamy, and silky smooth as the pudding you remember from your childhood.
This raw, all-natural pudding will satisfy your sweet tooth, but won’t give you a sugar crash and the fact that is nutritionally dense is a plus. Avocados are rich in heart-healthy omega 3-fatty acids and dark cocoa powder is rich in magnesium and antioxidants.
The quality of the ingredients will make or break this recipe so be sure to choose fresh, ripe avocados and a good quality cocoa powder and sweetener, such as organic agave nectar, maple syrup or raw honey.
This recipe is also completely customizable. If you prefer your pudding on the sweeter side just add more sweetener. On the contrary, if you like that deep, intense chocolate flavor, simply add less sweetener.
Although you can use any sweetener you want, I recommend you using a liquid sweetener since they blend easily. Also, if the pudding is too thick for your liking you can add a touch of plant-based milk (coconut is my favourite!).
Besides being easy and quick to make this recipe will be a hit with the kiddos! Little do my kids know that their afternoon snack is actually healthy for them. Just look at the satisfaction on their faces…

Seeing the joy on my kid’s faces as they devour their snack makes the blood, sweat, and tears involved in preparing it worth it (well, all 5 minutes of it!).
