EASY vegan raw chocolate avocado pudding

Who didn’t love those Bill Cosby commercials with the pudding cups and ugly sweaters?

I mean really- it was the perfect trap for any child that was glued to the television all day, with Mr. C and his lips puckered into that perfect O. Whenever I would catch one of those ads, my thoughts were hijacked by visions of chocolate as my mouth watered and my brain started to demand, “GIMME THAT PUDDIN!”

In the 80’s and 90’s we were unable to pick up on Bill’s “rapey vibes” (#sorrynotsorry) because we were still transfixed on the long term success of The Cosby Show and his hilarious family-friendly standup about chocolate cake (“DAD IS GREAT!”). Now? We shame dairy-filled chocolate pudding almost as much as we do Bill Cosby. Strange how things turn out huh?

Bill Cosby was king of pudding in the 80’s and 90’s, but now the avocado reigns supreme!

Regardless, I still can’t help but throw out some pudding quotes and/or classic Bill whenever I’m eating pudding (or chocolate cake for that matter). “IT’S THA PUDDIN AND THA JELL-O….” as my face does crazy contortions for emphasis.

The kids have no clue what I’m talking about and just think their mom is weird. lol.

Luckily, these days I don’t have to worry about buying those super-processed-dairy-packed-cocaine-laced-expensive-and-only-serves-a-family-of-four-pudding-cups. I can do it myself with a little cacao and avocado!

This healthy and delicious treat can be ready in less than 10 minutes!!

This pudding is SO simple and also SO healthy too! Forget those tasteless fat-free cups of crap and try making yourself this raw chocolate avocado pudding instead. The avocados provide you with plenty of healthy fats, and is sweetened with natural dates instead of excess processed sugar.

I like to add a little bit of E3Live to really get that extra health kick too- it is described in detail below.

And for the record: my kids ABSOLUTELY loved this pudding. I used to make it all the time when my girls were small, but recently decided to dust off my old recipe and update it. The result was a pudding that is creamy, chocolatey, and moan-worthy.

“GIMME THAT PUDDIN!”

Raw Chocolate Avocado Pudding

(Makes approximately 5 servings)

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, combine the flesh of the avocados, dates, vanilla, cacao, and E3Live (if using).
  2. Run food processor while slowly adding the filtered water, continue running until smooth and the mixture has a “pudding” texture.
  3. Scoop into bowls and munch!

*E3Live is a FABULOUS supplement that can be bought in powdered form- a nutritional algae with more than 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids in trace amounts. The flavor is completely masked in this recipe (my kids never even knew I added it!) and is a great way to get extra nutrients.

“GIMME THAT PUDDIN!” Ahahaha nice. I actually wasn’t a huge fan of jello pudding. My mom would make me chocolate mousse… which I’m not sure was any healthier. But this kind of reminds me of it. A better, healthier version that still tastes great (probably better!).

OOOO who don’t like no chocolate mousse!!? That sounds delish, but yeah it’s probably not any healthier lol. This stuff truly is the bomb and there’s zero guilt!
