Decadent Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Chocolate avocado pudding

This dessert is all about decadence while still being healthy.  It's fancy enough to serve to guests and you can put this together in about 10 minutes so it is perfect for unexpected company or a snack attack for yourself.  If you like your puddings cold, you'll need to give it a little time in the fridge, but you can eat it right after you make it too.  

Decadent Chocolate Avocado Pudding

makes 3 cups

1/2 cup raw cashews*
1 cup milk (I used almond)
1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
2 tablespoons cocoa nibs
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a high powered blender, process the raw cashews and the milk until smooth.  Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to process until mixture is well combined and completely smooth.  Spoon into serving dishes and chill before serving.

* If you want to avoid using nuts, you can substitute another ripe avocado for the raw cashews

Thanks for reading!
