bowl of Avocado Chocolate Pudding

We absolutely adore chocolate pudding, but eating chocolate pudding can feel like a bit of an indulgence. When we found out there was a way to make healthy chocolate pudding using avocados, we were intrigued. This avocado chocolate pudding recipe has been a go-to ever since!

We’re not going to lie, we were apprehensive about this chocolate pudding at first. Don’t get us wrong, we love both chocolate and avocados, but the two together? We didn’t know if we would actually enjoy the two put together as a dessert.

What we found out was that the two actually pair very well together. The avocado in this recipe provides the perfect creamy texture, while the cocoa powder gives it the rich, chocolate-y taste. The bonus is that this avocado chocolate pudding recipe is only made with 4 ingredients, so you don’t need a long shopping list to make this.

In addition, this recipe is keto-friendly and low-carb too! So give this pudding a try, even if you’re not sure you’d like the combo because we were pleasantly surprised!

Avocado Chocolate Pudding Recipe

serves 2


  • 1 medium ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder 
  • 10 drops stevia 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 


  1. Cut the avocado in half, removing the pit. Use a sharp knife to separate the skin from the avocado flesh. Toss the skin and add the avocado flesh to a medium bowl.
  2. Use a fork to mash the avocado a little bit. Then add the cocoa powder, stevia, and vanilla extract.
  3. Use the fork to continue mixing and mashing the mixture until it resembles a pudding. If you want, you can also use an electric hand mixer to do the job.

Notes: If you find that it’s hard to mix your pudding and it’s looking a little dry, try streaming in some heavy cream to loosen it up. You can also try adding in a little bit of softened cream cheese.
