Chocolate Orange Avocado Pudding
Chocolate Orange Avocado Pudding: a rich, silky-smooth, decadent, creamy and healthy dessert ready in 2 minutes! vegan, gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free
This chocolate orange avocado pudding is so rich, silky-smooth, decadent and creamy, nobody will ever believe it’s healthy!
It’s the perfect recipe when a sudden chocolate craving hits, it only takes 2 minutes to make and requires no effort whatsoever. Simply blitz all the ingredients in a blender, scoop the chocolate orange avocado pudding into small ramekins or, if you want it to look super pretty, pipe it out with a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.
The chia seeds act as a thickening agent, the avocados give a thick, creamy texture. You will not taste the avocado as it it masked by the intense chocolate and orange flavor.
If you can’t find chia powder at the store, use chia seeds (the texture will not be so smooth) or grind chia seeds in a food processor, blender or coffee grinder.
I used agave nectar, you can replace it with pure maple syrup or raw honey. Taste the mousse after blending and adjust the amount depending on how sweet you like it
The pudding can be prepared 1 or 2 days in advance and stored covered in the refrigerator.
Did I mention that this orange chocolate avocado pudding is vegan, paleo (substitute the agave nectar with maple syrup) dairy-free, egg-free and gluten-free?
