Chocolate Avocado Pudding with Fresh Berries


With a creamy texture and decadent flavour, this recipe is a heart-healthy take on traditional chocolate pudding that features avocadoes (full of good monounsaturated fats to lower your bad cholesterol levels), dark 70%+ cocoa chocolate, and berries (both of which are antioxidant-rich foods to help reduce your risk of developing heart disease). Wholeheartedly enjoyable!

SERVES 4 (keep in mind the portion sizes might look deceiving – even a little bit is quite filling!)

Use organic ingredients when possible

2 ripe avocadoes (look for ones that are almost overripe)

5 oz good-quality dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa content), chopped

2 tsp raw honey or pure dark or amber maple syrup

4 tbsp strong brewed coffee or 1 tsp instant coffee granules + 4 tbsp water

Any combination of fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, etc.), for topping

Cacao nibs and chopped or ground pistachios, for garnish

In a heatproof bowl over simmering water melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Stir in the brewed coffee (or instant-coffee granules and water) and honey.

Place the avocadoes in a blender with the chocolate mixture; purée until smooth and creamy, adding a splash of water, if needed, to get it going.

Chill until ready to serve, topped with berries and garnished with cacao nibs and pistachios.
