Seasonal Flavors: Avocado Chocolate Pudding

One of my favorite greeting cards shows a series of seven avocados.  They are labeled:

Not ripe

Not ripe

Not ripe

Over ripe

So true! There is nothing more frustrating than buying avocados and discover, when you cut them open, that they are brown and yucky. But here is a solution, if they aren’t too far gone—make pudding. Seriously. My friend Linda gave me this recipe and it’s delicious. I make it when the avocados elude me in catching them at their peak for use in guacamole.

You can use a fork, a mini-food processor, a standard blender, or an immersion blender to mix the pudding. I’m giving the recipe for a single, over-ripe avocado. Multiply as needed.

Avocado Chocolate Pudding

  • 1 over-ripe avocado
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 3 T maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 T water

Mix. Chill.  Enjoy.
