Wholesome No Cook Chocolate Pudding

Wholesome No Cook Chocolate Pudding

This pudding is rich and creamy and chocolaty sweet.  It’s also the healthiest pudding you will ever eat and you’ll never guess what it’s made of!  I made it on a whim one night when I made the mistake of scheduling dental work over dinnertime.  My stomach was rumbling but I wasn’t supposed to chew for several hours so I scoured the kitchen for something satisfying that I could puree.  This crazy recipe is the result and it’s awesome!  It takes like 5 minutes to make, it’s loaded with nutrition and it really tastes good!  The flavor and texture are so similar to regular pudding it’s unbelievable.  Who knew beans and avocado could be so sweet?

Wholesome No Cook Chocolate Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • ¾ cup yogurt (I like plain or vanilla)
  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup honey

Directions:

  • Pour all the ingredients into a food processor or high-powered blender (a regular blender will also work although it might not get perfectly smooth).  Blend, stopping as needed to scrape down the sides, until the mixture is totally smooth.
  • If your machine is having a hard time you can add a little milk (or another liquid) to help the blades turn.  Add just a Tablespoon or so at a time and don’t use too much or your pudding will turn to soup!
  • Garnish as desired and enjoy:)

Notes:

  • Sweetness – I like mildly sweet desserts, feel free to adjust the amount of honey in this recipe to taste.
  • Extras – you can add all kinds of extras to this recipe for extra flavor and/or nutrition.  Options include banana, berries, peanut butter, vanilla, coconut, etc.  The extras can be blended with the other ingredients or added afterwards like a topping.
