We love avocados and use them in a lot of dishes, but this is the first time we’ve taken them into dessert. While you don’t actually taste avocado, the texture this pudding gets from them is so silky and smooth! This recipe makes enough for two just-right servings.

Taste-tested in northern lower Michigan alongside some white wine and a game of Cranium.

  • 1 avocado
  • 2-3 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3-4 Tbs. raw, local honey
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 C (more or less) coconut milk
  • Pinch of sea salt

Combine the avocado, cocoa, honey, and vanilla in a food processor. Gradually add in the coconut milk, with the food processor on, until the pudding is your desired consistency. Chill for at least an hour. Sprinkle the top with just a pinch of sea salt before serving.

If you don’t have a food processor, use a wire whisk to beat up the avocados, then continue whisking in the remainder of the ingredients. Chill for an hour.
