Avocado Chocolate Pudding (vegan, gluten-free, grain-free)

We recently bought a Ninja Nutri Blender to attempt to make our own nondairy milks. I have celiac reactions to oats, and the oat milk fad has contaminated all the nut milks we usually buy, so we’re going to try making our own.

But first… chocolate pudding! I’ve been thinking about avocado chocolate pudding since we shared an amazing cup of it in Chico, California, at Live Love Juice.

Two bamboo bowls with chocolate pudding, garnished with marshmallows and chocolate chips

We’ve made this a few times. It’s best with nondairy whipped cream, but a few chocolate chips and Dandies marshmallows are also fantastic.


  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla (extract, paste, etc)
  • Generous pinch sea salt


Blend ingredients until smooth and serve immediately.

To save for later, the avocados will oxidize and the pudding will look less delicious. Melt chocolate chips with coconut oil and poor a thin layer on top of the pudding before covering and putting in the fridge. Extra chocolate and a protective layer!
