Chocolate Avocado Banana Pudding: Vegan Dessert Recipe

This sneaky vegan dessert recipe is a must-have for anyone, vegan or not! This Chocolate Avocado Banana Pudding is wonderfully healthy but don’t let the ingredients fool you – it is so delicious and decadent, you won’t even know you’re eating a guilt-free treat!

I have some more things to add to my to-buy list. One of those is a stand mixer. My parents have one and it’s so convenient. It doesn’t do as good of a job at mixing ingredients together as a hand mixer but it’s just so much easier. I am able to do whatever I need to do while the batter is getting all mixed and beaten.

Another thing is a food processor. I thought I could use my roommate’s magic bullet but it really doesn’t do as well of a job at mixing and chopping as a food processor probably would. I was supposed to use a food processor for this pudding/mousse. I don’t have one. I started with the magic bullet and that was a total fail, it would not get mixed in at all. It would get pretty mixed by the blades but that’s about it – not good enough. So I stuck the mixture in a blender and used that. It wasn’t bad but I had to hand mix and stir with a spoon quite a bit also. The mixture probably would have turned out much thicker if I used a food processor, but beggars can’t be choosers. I will work with what I can get.

This pudding had a pretty thick consistency and texture just like a pudding. I thought it would come out more like a mousse but I’d consider it more pudding-like. Although it might still get thicker in the fridge. I only tried it right as it was done, not out of the fridge. I will update once I let it cool for an hour or two.

All of the flavors are pretty apparent, especially the banana. I used a ripe banana and a ripe avocado. It was actually my first time ever even dealing with an avocado! It was pretty cool. Thankfully, my roommate told me how to get the meat out. I feel like such a newbie. Oh wait, I guess I am a newbie haha.

I also am paying more attention to post layouts of other blogs and seeing how people post their food recipes. I’m gonna try to adapt to that and do posts with a layout similar to those.

Chocolate Banana Avocado Pudding

[adapted from Edible Perspective]

Ingredients:

1 ripe avocado
1 ripe banana
3-4 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp truvia (or more if you like it sweeter)
half a scoop of chocolate protein powder

Directions:

In a food processor, combine the avocado and banana and blend until smooth.

Add the other ingredients and blend again.

Put in a glass, refrigerate, and serve.

Can be kept in the refrigerator in a sealed container for 2-3 days.

This yields one small pudding. The size is barely enough to fill a glass.

It wouldn’t fit in a regular glass so I had to put it in a martini glass. Plus it looks nice with a martini glass. I feel like anything put in a martini glass will automatically look more fancy and pretty. Haha, but that’s just me.

Surprise Cookies

I used this vegan dessert recipe as topping for the Surprise Cookies – which are a decadent treat of cookies that taste like brownies and have a marshmallow surprise inside. Covered with this fabulous vegan pudding, they taste like heaven! Try them out!

  1. Looks good! I made this the other night using a blender and melted dark chocolate instead cocoa powder. I also stuck it in the fridge for a bit. It was yummy!

    • Ohh, melted chocolate, huh? That sounds interesting! I’m totally craving so much chocolate today so this was perfect. Although I melted some chocolate chips in the microwave and poured it on top of it and then ate it. Yeah, chocoholic.

  2. Oh avocado in pudding is just phenomenal! I like the addition of the banana here. I will definitely be giving this a try 🙂

    P.S. Totally dig your blog theme and layout 😉

  3. That looks really amazing – it’s fantastic what one can do with such unusual ingredients (at last, in this context).

  7. Hello There,

    Found you on Ricki’s site today. This pudding looks super yum! I always appreciate other gluten, dairy and sugar free recipes. Lovely site you have here. And you are just too beautiful my dear!!

    Great job! Keep up the good work.

    I make a similar pudding with avocado and pumpkin (in a coconut milk base). So awesome how chocolate hides the other flavors!

    If you’re interested, you should share this recipe next week on our blog hop (Allergy-Free Wednesdays). It will be a nice way to get some exposure too. Your post will be shared on 7 blogs. 🙂

    Maybe we will see you next week!

  11. mmmmmmmmm I love this…looks absolutely incredible! good to know about the handmixer vs. magic bullet vs. stand mixer…. I only have a magic bullet right now and I am in dire need of something else!

  12. if you use whey protein it isn’t vegan

    • I am aware of this. I mention in most of my recipes that I personally am not vegan and you can use another protein powder in its place. That’s why I name the recipe vegan because it can be vegan easily.
