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!

Hi Lisa,

So glad you both enjoyed the pudding.

Going raw doesn't take too much courage, it's more to do with being prepared, making sure your fridge is stocked with delicious appetizing fruits and veg, and spending a little more time making food then one is used to. :) Easier said than done, I know, but it all starts with the next bite. :) xox

Hi - the recipe looks amazing. Any thoughts on what I might be able to replace the dates with?

Thanks,
Dawn

Hi Dawn, my first preference for this recipe is dates. However, if you can't eat dates then you could try raisins instead. Hope this helps!

I'm such a skeptic but it was REALLY good! My 4 yr old even ate a bowl and he's a 'Hey Mikey! He likes it! ' Life cereal kind of kid. I saved some for my ultra picky 9 year old. I'll have to let you know how it goes. If it's a winner, it's going to be a new school snack :-)

Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum. Crazy good. I think this would even make a great dip for fresh strawberries and bananas. I can't wait to try it with nuts mixed in too. Maybe some coconut. Raisins? Oh, the possibilities are practically endless! Thanks again for another great recipe, Laura-Jane!

Hi Summer, you always have such good ideas. This would definitely make a very nice strawberry/banana dip, and I like the idea of putting a few little "mixins" to give it some interesting texture... maybe some chopped nuts or oooooooooooooooooo hempseed hearts would be really yum!

WOW ...this is unbelievably good! I made enough for 5 serves and ended up eating 3 to myself :)
The kids found it a bit rich but I thought it was exquisite. I used organic maple syrup instead of honey.

Will definately make again, perhaps I'll use a little less cacao in the kids servings but not in mine.
Thanks again Rawtarian for your delightful recipes :)

Hey Blackie! Great to hear from you again. That's funny that you're kids weren't gaga for it - all the more for you, which isn't necessarily a bad thing ;)

What I wanted to ask-before my laptop went rogue on me-is can I use raw carob rather than cocoa?

RawkingD, Darn rogue laptops! I have a rogue vaccuum - it just sits there even though I know I should be using it lol!

Re: carob, yes, but since carob has a weaker flavor, I'd add a bit more carob than cocoa. Perhaps just under 4 tbsps of carob in this recipe.

Hope this helps!

Hi Debra, the dates are necessary both for sweetness and texture

Thank you I actually did try it without dates and my fiance was a bit weirded out but it was still yummy. The dates would probably make it better though haha.

I agree, it would probably be better with dates. You'll have to make something raw and extra delicious for your fiance next time ;) Glad you still thought it was okay though!

Dear Laura-Jane,
Thanks for this great recipe. Our 3 year old daughter is fighting leukemia, and I can feed this to her and sneak in some superfoods. Usually, it's really hard to get anything healthy in her. So, Mom wins, kid wins!

Freakin yum!!!!! I added a little orange rind and vanilla, just coz I love those two flavours. Licked the bowl, licked the spoon ... had to hold me back from licking the food processor blade - not such a good idea.
