ABC Pudding is a creamy and deceivingly delicious raw, vegan, and almost paleo version of chocolate pudding made from avocado, banana, and cocoa powder.
Christmas is over and the new year is just around the corner. I don’t know about you, but while I’ve been eating my cooking and gulping my oh-so-delicious eggnog lattes, I’ve been daydreaming about all the changes I’ll be making with my eating habits. I do this to myself every year – eat whatever I want until my pants start to get tight in all the wrong places, then I make some changes.
This ABC pudding is good. A little weird, but still very good. I did not tell my kids that I put avocado in their chocolate pudding. I didn’t tell them that it was full of banana either. I did, however, give them each a small bowl for dessert and they both loved it. They devoured it. They licked the bowl clean. It wasn’t until I told them the next day that it had banana and avocado in it that they said it was disgusting. Go figure.
Now, you can probably make this paleo with some sort of paleo-friendly sweetener. I’m a brown sugar fan myself. I can’t go and replace all of my vices too soon, now can I? As long as the avocado and banana you use are perfectly ripe, meaning soft and at the peak of their flavor, and not overly ripe, meaning brown and mushy, than this will taste surprising like real chocolate pudding. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
This recipe uses pure vanilla extract. Did you know you can make your own homemade vanilla extract? It makes the perfect gift too. Watch how in the video below.
