Buttery-smooth avocados make this vegan chocolate pudding exceptionally luscious. The delicious green fruit is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which help lower cholesterol levels and decrease your risk of heart disease.
2 c. avocado flesh (approximately 4 med. avocados), pitted and scooped out
1/3 c. non-dairy milk
2/3 c. pure maple syrup
1 tbsp. smooth peanut butter (or omit for nut-free)
1 tbsp. arrowroot powder (thickener, probably optional)
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 c. chocolate chips, melted (optional)
1/4 c. cocoa powder, sifted
Place all filling ingredients (except chocolate chips) into food processor. Process until smooth. You can either stop here for a lighter pudding or move onto the next step for a more intense chocolate pudding. Melt chocolate chips in microwave and then add into food processor mixture. Process until smooth.
Makes about 1.5 cups.
