Fun fact, that I’ve shared once before – I am from Fallbrook, California, which claims itself to be the Avocado Capitol of the World. I love avocados, but until recently I’d only eaten them in savory foods – guacamole, tacos, salads, etc. But I headed to the store and grabbed some Hass avocados and decided to make a dessert with them. Avocados in dessert, you ask? Why yes – avocados can be used in many types of recipes from the few I mentioned, to soups, to smoothies. And I made a chocolate avocado pudding!
Another good reason to love avocados is how good they are for you. Avocados contain naturally good fats, which are an important part of a healthy diet. They are cholesterol and sodium free. They are dense in nutrients too. And I actually love just cutting an avocado open, slicing it up and sprinkling it with just a dash of salt for a great snack. Here’s a cute video from Love One Today talking about health and nutrition that I would love for you to watch!
So back to my chocolate avocado pudding. The chocolate in this pudding is really pretty dark, I prefer something a little lighter, but I topped mine with some fruit and that helped sweeten it up a little for me and make it more enjoyable for me, but it was still perfect for my chocolate and sweet tooth fix. Inspired by this recipe from Two Peas in their Pod
