So, you may be thinking ‘avocado in pudding, Dawn?’ Um, no thanks.’
Seriously, this is really good.
I wouldn’t steer you wrong.
You know how avocado is super creamy? How it makes guacamole so dreamy and delicious?
Well, it does the same kinda thing for this pudding.
You don’t taste the avocado; it just lends itself to the lush texture.
Plus, it comes together in minutes! What are ya waiting for?

How to Make Chocolate Avocado Pudding
Full details are in the recipe card below, but here are the basics:
- Melt chocolate chips via a double boiler (or in the microwave, using 30 second intervals). Set aside.
- In a food processor add avocado, cocoa powder, almond milk, maple syrup, peppermint extract and salt.
- Process until smooth.
- Add melted chocolate to processor and process until combined. Then, use in tarts or enjoy as is.
For this recipe, I used pre-baked pastry tarts (how convenient are those?) and topped with crushed candy cane, shaved chocolate and fresh mint (after all, it is the holidays so why not go all out?)
This avocado pudding is so creamy, you’d be tempted to enjoy straight from the processor.
Not that I’d ever do that.
That’s not true.
You know I would, LOL.
Another way to enjoy this chocolate mint avocado pudding is to layer in small jars with whipped cream. If you aren’t using the tart shells, this recipe yields enough pudding for four people.

I used two avocados, each about 5 ounces (which is pretty much standard size). If your avocados are larger or smaller, you may need to adjust the amount of milk you add to get your desired consistency.
Speaking of avocados, you want ripe avocados, not rock hard.
Chocolate almond milk was used here to really amp up the chocolate flavour. You can use regular chocolate milk or even vanilla almond milk in a pinch.
Dark chocolate chips were used, but milk would work too. Want to keep this avocado pudding vegan? Use vegan chocolate.
Don’t want chocolate mint flavour? Omit the peppermint extract and replace with vanilla extract.
If you want to enjoy the avocado pudding as is, go for it! No need to use the shells, if you don’t want to.
