Recipe Directions

  • 1. Throw these raw chocolate avocado pudding ingredients into a high-speed blender. Start blending on slow and then crank up the blending speed to high.
  • 2. Blend this sucker until puddingy and gooooood! You might need to start and stop this a few times to get it to blend properly because the dates will require more blending than pudding recipes that don't contain dates. If you have a good blender (AKA Vitamix or Blendtec) then you should be able to get this super smooth.
  • 3. You may need to add a tiny bit of extra water to facilitate blending. But if doing so only add TINY bits at a time! Try not to add extra water or it'll end up watering it down and changing the consistency.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Most raw chocolate avocado puddings do not contain dates. Rather, instead they include a lot more agave nectar or raw honey to get the pudding to sweeten up. However, I don't like to use too much honey in this one, so instead in this raw chocolate avocado pudding recipe I call for dates and just a bit of honey.

I recommend soaking your dates first in a warm water for an hour or so so that they are soft and easier to blend, especially If you do not have a high-speed blender.

Although you can eat this chocolate pudding right away, I find that this raw pudding tastes best when chilled in the fridge for at least a few hours.

This is a small recipe that makes four small servings. Feel free to double if you'd like more. And more choco puddding is always a good thing!

Sooo... I made this, and at the end I added in a few dried cranberries, mixed them in then topped it with unsweetened coconut flakes and a few fresh blueberries and chopped strawberries... if anyone's looking for me, I am in Raw Sweet Heaven (please, do not disturb!) 😋💕

Yes, please do not disturb indeed. Sometimes I describe those moments as: "I am going to go into the closet and quietly eat this with a spoon now" moment. :)

Soooo hits the spot when you want to cheat! Oh yummy, yummy, yummy!!

Would soaking the dates in the water first help ease the blending of the dates? I have a vitamix and it was not perfectly smooth, not that I cared, tasted good any way about it. It might work better as a bigger batch in blending better. I did the 4 serving size.

I used raw cacao powder (which I'm told is more bitter & stronger flavored than processed cocoa) and therefore preferred double the amount of honey.

I would have never guessed this would keep 3 days! Yay!

Thank you for such fantastic recipes!

PPS- I made your meat balls today and they were excellent. I am not able to keep the monthly subscription going so I am unable to write a review, but thought you should know. :)

I have a Phillips. I have never had issues with it before however I made your avocado and spinach soup the next day and it really struggled with that too until i added more water. Seems to be my blender not your recipe that let me down :)

No problem at all. Your comment and rating totally stands, and I think we should leave it because it's helpful for everyone to have all experiences chronicled here. That's the usefulness of reviews!

Not all blenders are created equally :)

Making this for my type 2 diabetic husband..any ideas for replacement of the dates? I use stevia in most my recipes. Great site and recipe!

Hi Lynn,

Overall, stevia is indeed the best sweetener for diabetics.

This recipe won't work very well without the dates, since they affect the consistency of the pudding.

One slight modification that could work well is to use dried apricots instead of the dates (since they are less sweet than dates) and add some stevia to compensate for the sweetness. I'm not sure if he should be eating dried apricots, though.

If not, perhaps try one of my chia puddings instead - those are much easier to use stevia as the sweetener in.

Hope this helps!

just finished making the pudding. I used carob powder instead of cocoa powder. I was having a hard time pureeing everything in the vitamix so I moved the ingredients to a food processor and it woked great. the pudding is very good.

Hi Mumin!

Too bad about the almond milk - although I would have said go for it! I can't imagine that it would have been too much of an issue... perhaps you ate too much ;)

I suggest leaving the date amount as written, and simply omitting the honey (or greatly reducing it) instead of tweaking the amount of dates. It won't be QUITE as sweet, but it will turn out fine.
