They (I don’t care who!) say it is beneficial to eat a little dark chocolate every day, so here is my “go to” recipe when the need for something chocolatey arises.

A Vitamix will allow you to whip up this delectable dessert in less than 1 minute, but if you haven’t made the investment in this powerful machine yet, any high speed blender or food processor will do.

I know there are many raw pudding recipes out there but what makes this recipe so unique is the Grade B maple syrup (not raw, but rich in vitamins and minerals). Although agave and other grades of syrup will work, Grade B maple syrup gives the pudding a richer, almost caramel-like, flavor.

Prepare to be amazed!

Sometimes, I omit the water and freeze the pudding to make chocolate ice cream.

If your body does not agree with raw chocolate, Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa can be used, although it is not raw.

To keep this recipe raw, you can sub a nice ripe banana for the maple syrup (which isn't raw), and omit the water.

I try to eat at least one avocado/day, and this is a lovely way to do it. It is good with chopped walnuts on top, too.

Thanks for reminding me about maple syrup not being raw! I have changed that in the recipe.

Amazing!! tastes JUST like homemade non-raw chocolate pudding! Reminds me of my childhood, only healthy (I love the fats in avocados for my hair and nails!) and incredibly delicious. I used 4 medjool dates and 1/3c honey instead of maple syrup (because I somehow LOST my agave!) to sweeten and it was perfect!! I also used vanilla paste instead of just vanilla. And cacao powder. Okay so I changed the whole recipe - but it was GOOD. And HIT THE SPOT. I will make this whenever I want something sweet that uses up my avocados!

Wow, that was really good. I never actually liked chocolate pudding before, but I was craving something chocolatey and happened to have two avocados and the rest of the ingredients (a rare thing, since I've only just started a raw diet)-- this was really really easy and tasted amazing. Even my family agreed :)

When I make this kind of pudding (which I do often) I use dates as the sweetener. They are raw, nutritious, and yummy!
