Chocolate Avocado Monkey Pudding (Raw, Vegan, GF)

Chocolate Avocado Monkey Pudding (Raw, Vegan, GF)

I think chocolate and avocado go together almost as well as chocolate and peanut butter. The avocado taste is virtually undetectable, and it makes such a creamy pudding without having to use dairy. If you’re one of those who detests the taste of avocado, and you insist that you can taste it in chocolate desserts, then you might want to try this pudding before you swear off all avocado desserts. Turn it into a monkey pudding by adding a banana.


And add a few toppers.


Creamy, chocolatey goodness.

    how delicious! I love avocado chocolate pudding and this variation looks divine. I’m still sticking to low-sugar fruits only for the moment but I’m really starting to miss my beloved bananas after all this time apart :(

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
