TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST HEALTHY AVOCADO BANANA CHOCOLATE PUDDING
USE ULTRA RIPE BANANAS. Ripe bananas will give your chocolate pudding a naturally sweet flavor.
USE SOFT RIPE AVOCADO. Soft avocados will give you that creamy pudding texture without having to cook over the stove.
ADD EXTRA CACAO FOR DARK CHOCOLATE FLAVOR. If you like super dark chocolate flavor, opt for more cacao powder!
BLEND COMPLETELY. Keep your food processor going until you have a smooth creamy texture. You might have to scape down the sides half way through.
ADD TOPPINGS. I love pairing chocolate with some fresh berries and whipped cream! I used coconut whipped cream to top this chocolate pudding recipe.
EAT IMMEDIATELY. My no cook chocolate pudding is best eaten the day of because of the fresh raw ingredients. You can store it overnight, but you might see some separation beginning.
Frequently asked questions about my no cooking required avocado banana chocolate pudding.
Should I use a blender or food processor to make creamy chocolate pudding?
Either one works! I used to use a blender for ALL my recipes. But, we recently got a food processor, so I have been using that instead.
If you don't have a super powerful blender or food processor, just turn it off mid way and scrape the sides down to make sure it blends evenly.
Is chocolate avocado pudding keto?
If you are following a keto diet, this is not the dessert for you. My avocado banana chocolate pudding is sugar free, but bananas are high in carbs.
Can I make avocado banana chocolate pudding without cocoa powder?
I have not tried making this recipe without cocoa powder yet. But, if you have some dark chocolate on hand, I bet it would taste amazing blended into this pudding. Just make sure to melt then cool your dark chocolate before you blend it in!
What is avocado banana chocolate pudding made of?
My healthy chocolate avocado banana pudding is made with just 5 ingredients: ripe avocado, ripe banana, cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt.

HEALTHY AVOCADO BANANA CHOCOLATE PUDDING INGREDIENTS
- Bananas. Bananas add so much sweetness to a dessert recipe. But, you need to make sure they are VERY ripe to get the sweet flavor for them. Unlike refined sugar, bananas contain essential nutrients like potassium, fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin B-6.
- Avocado. Avocados are what gives this pudding it's creamy texture. Make sure that you are using a ripe avocado! If it is hard, you will not get the creamy texture. Avocados are considered a super food for a good reason! They contain essential nutrients including fiber, potassium, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin B-6, and magnesium. PLUS they are a great option for those brain healthy fats!
- Cacao powder. Unlike coco powder, which is highly processed, cacao powder is minimally processed. This minimal processing keeps those beneficial nutrients intact. Cacao powder contains antioxidants called polyphenols. Polyphenols are also found in fruits, vegetables, tea, and wine. They help protect our bodies from toxins and age-related diseases.

- Vanilla Extract. Make sure you buy PURE vanilla extract. Some vanilla extract is not pure and contains artificial ingredients.
- Maple Syrup. This is another one that you want to make sure you buy PURE. Pure maple syrup contains high amounts of an essential nutrient called manganese! If you like more of a bitter dark chocolate flavor, you can leave out the maple syrup.
- Pink sea salt. Unlike refined sea salt, which is bleached and even contains anti-caking ingredients, pink sea salt is unrefined. There are also micro amounts of different minerals in pink sea salt.
HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AVOCADO BANANA CHOCOLATE PUDDING IN YOUR FOOD PROCESSOR
In a food processor, add:
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 ripe avocado
- ¼-1/2 cup raw cacao powder (use ½ for very dark chocolate flavor)
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- ½ tsp pink sea salt
You can also add 1-2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup or honey if you like your chocolate pudding on the sweeter side.
Turn your food processor on and keep it running until your pudding is smooth and creamy and no chunks remain. You may have to turn your food processor off once or twice to scrape down the sides.
HOW TO SERVE AVOCADO BANANA CHOCOLATE PUDDING
Scoop your chocolate pudding into 2 small bowls (I like to use ramekins). You can eat it just the way it is, or add some whipped cream and fresh berries! Strawberries or raspberries are really good with chocolate pudding.
If you like your chocolate pudding cold, place your dishes in the fridge for 30 minutes - 1 hour to chill before serving.

Can I store healthy chocolate pudding overnight?
Yes! But make sure that it is completely covered.
I think it is best the day of, but most things are. If you forgot about it and it is day 2, you can throw it into your blender with ingredients for a chocolate smoothie!
