Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Avocado Pudding

Avocado's neutral flavor and creamy texture makes it a wonderful substitute for dairy in desserts or smoothies.

 

INGREDIENTS 

▢ 2 large, ripe avocados , halved and stoned

▢ 1 large banana , chopped

▢ 5 soft prunes

▢ 6 tbsp unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk

▢ 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter (unsweetened, if possible)

▢ 3 tbsp cacao powder (or good quality cocoa powder)

▢ 100g coconut milk yogurt (such as CoYo)

▢ 2 tsp maple syrup or honey

▢ dark chocolate (80% cocoa, if possible), to decorate

 

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Scoop the avocado flesh into a food processor. Add the chopped banana, prunes, almond or coconut milk, smooth peanut butter and cacao powder. Blend until smooth, adding a little more milk if the blade gets stuck. Scrape down the sides once or twice and blend again.

 

  1. Divide the mixture between 4 small glasses. Mix the coconut yogurt with the maple syrup or honey and top each pudding with a generous dollop. Finely grate a little dark chocolate over the top and chill for at least 1 hr.
