Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Dessert first, I say! So a chocolatey toast to a new blog.

I’ve been looking for some sort of creative outlet to share my work with people. I’m a cook, a photographer, and I like to think I know how to dress myself at least semi-decently. This gives me a place to put all of that.

So first, a post dedicated to dessert. I’m not a huge fan of sweets- it takes a craving to get me to eat something sweet and even then in moderation. But this particular dessert, I couldn’t say no to! I got the inspiration from this post by The Beauty Department. With a few tweaks to fit my kitchen- which is mostly vegan- this pudding has the potential to become dinner-party worthy.

This pudding was so smooth and do delicious. You’d never know it was made with avocado! It adds a wonderfully creamy element to what is a wonderfully healthy and tempting dessert. This could also be garnished with some degree of whipped topping though I think the bananas do their job just fine.

    • Yes! It could totally be an ice cream. I hadn’t thought of that. I approached it as a custard because of the similar texture but it could totally be chilled even further to be an ice cream. Great thinking!
