Directions

Add all ingredients except Cocoa Powder into a food processor or blender, pulse until smooth. Add Cocoa Powder to Avocado mixture and blend until smooth. (I added water, because it was too thick for a blender to mix.) Taste, and add more sugar if too bitter and blend.
Refrigerate in a tighly sealed container for up to a week.
Serve with cool whip and your favorite berries and enjoy! This recipe is really rich and you only need the 1/2 cup to satisfy any chocolate craving! Makes 8-- 1/2 cup servings.

    I think that's supposed to be TEASPOONS of vanilla. A tablespoon would be an awful lot. It's Renee Loux' recipe and her web site calls for 1 teaspoon for 4 servings. - 10/14/08

    This is so rich and wonderful it wows everyone. It's so easy! I'll make it again and again and have already shared it with non-dieters. I might try using less vanilla because 2 tablespoons is a huge amount! - 3/17/10

    Awesome!! I too found it a bit dry so added some cashew milk. Might cut cocoa next time. Wasn't sure soy sauce was correct so omitted that. I used agave nectar in place of sugar. - 11/5/09

    I found adding a quarter cup of cocoa powder at a time worked better. I only needed about 1 1/4 cup to achieve the taste I preferred. Instead of vanilla extract (1 tsp), I used almond extract. I will definitely use this recipe again. Thanks.

    sounds very similar to the one i make. For a variation, you can also add mint extract or fresh mint. If using fresh, you may need to add extra. Taste - 7/15/11

    I halved the recipe (because I only had one avacado) and it still turned out great!! I love it and I'm not even vegan. ^__^ - 8/29/08

    I really had my reservations when I decided to make it, but I am so glad that I did! It is absolutely delicious. I can't believe that I can make something so rich and satisfying, knowing what goes into it! - 7/9/08

  • I only had one ripe medium avocado, so I changed the recipe. I eliminated the coconut oil and sugar, used 1/4 cup cocoa and 2 T Maple Syrup, used 2 T Maple Balsamic Vinegar (incredibly yummy!), added 1 1/2 packets Stevia, 1/2 teas low sodium Tamari, and added about 1/3 C Soy milk. Delicious! - 5/28/13

  • This is amazing. I omitted the coconut oil and used almond milk sparingly. I think the soy sauce, and balsamic vinegar, add a lot of depth of flavor. It's absolutely amazing! The consistency is creamy and the taste is rich and complex. I'm bringing it to a vegan potluck. - 3/23/13

  • i am suprisingly impressed. didn't have maple syrup so i used chocolate syrup. used 2 tsp of vanilla. i had to add more sugar than the recipe called for, but i like the texture and flavor. great with strawberries. - 8/15/12

  • This had such great flavor! Very rich and creamy! I used 1T vanilla, 2T sugar, skipped the coconut oil, and otherwise made as directed & it was YUMMY. The one down side is that I only got 2 cups total out of it, so my half-cup servings packed more calories. Maybe my avocados weren't big enough? - 3/13/12

  • I made this with much doubt. I could not picture a pudding tasting anything like chocolate when it contained avocado - and I even like avocado. BUT, it was totally amazing. I have never had anything so good. I did make it with only a few alterations but my calorie information was way more. - 6/28/10

  • This was AWESOME! I made it using pure clover honey as a cheaper alternative to maple syrup and skipped the granulated sugar. I halved the recipe and used a full tbsp of vanilla and about 1/8 cup of water. - 2/22/10

  • I saw this recipe and had to try it, but I made it off of memory so my version was 1 avocado 1/4 c. sugar 2 T agave syrup and 1/2 c. dark coco powder. For all my doubts, this was great. Now I will have to make it as listed above. I will make this in the future because it is so quick. - 3/16/09
