How to Make A Chocolate Avocado Pudding
This recipe will serve 2 if you’re hungry – but you may well want to eek it out to 3 or 4 if it’s just a small dessert you’re after.

- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 3-6 tablespoons coconut milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons raw honey
- Combine avocado, cacao powder, coconut milk, vanilla, coconut oil and honey in blender. Blend on high for 1 minute or until smooth.
- Transfer into small dishes and refrigerate for 30 minutes
