This Paleo Chocolate Pudding is a simple, delicious dessert for New Year’s Eve! It’s made with avocados, but you’ll never know you’re eating your vegetables. The pudding is rich, creamy, and chocolatey, and also very healthy. The avocados and nuts provide protein and healthy fats. The chocolate provides fiber, antioxidants, and neurotransmitters that make you feel happy.
Jim, the kids, and I have a very mellow New Year’s Eve tradition, and let me tell you…mellow is good after all the Christmas mayhem! We celebrate with silly string, poppers, and fun kid activities early in the day. In the evening we order sushi, then play board games until midnight. Just last year we allowed the older 3 kids to stay up late with us. While we play board games it’s fun to have something special to snack on. This Paleo Chocolate Pudding hits the spot! It’s filling, so we like to eat it slowly with mini dessert spoons.
Before we get to the recipe for the pudding, I want to invite you to join with others who are making healthy changes. I’d love to walk alongside you in your journey towards wholeness and health! Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full!” Freedom from food addictions is part of having a truly full life.
- 1 Cup Avocado
- 1/2 Cup Raw Cashew Butter
- 1/2 Cup Light Coconut Cream
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- 1 Tsp Organic Cinnamon
- 1/4 Tsp Organic Cardamom (optional…I like it, but Jim doesn’t)
- 1/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1/3 Cup Raw Honey or Maple Syrup (the honey gives it more of a fruity flavor)
- 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
Place all of the ingredients in your food processor and run it on high until you have a creamy pudding. You may need to scrape down the sides a couple times. Serve cold, with berries as a garnish. You can make this pudding a day or two ahead of time. Keep an avocado pit in it and cover tightly with plastic wrap. I prefer not to use plastic if I can avoid it, but you won’t be heating this up, so it should be okay for a couple days. Enjoy!
