{Pudding is such a comfort food.  I've got several pudding recipes on my site already like this chocolate chia pudding, this berry mousse, this chocolate avocado pudding, and this whipped coconut pudding,  but I'm thrilled to share with you today this fabulous recipe for avocado pudding from Debra Worth from Worth Cooking.

My family is a bunch of avocado lovers so I am sure this will be a hit with us!}

It's hard to get creamier than an avocado.

But, the benefits of avocado go beyond that. That little fruit is a powerhouse of nutrition. It is full of healthy fats, high in protein (for a fruit at least), and a great source of potassium (as well as other vitamins). Creamy and healthy, no wonder it is so well loved.

I felt all cool and trendy a few months back when I made some avocado chocolate pudding to a MOPS brunch.

There was no doubt upon looking at it it was super creamy. I thought it was delicious too.

But, apparently I was the only one.

I am rather embarrassed to say I spent a decent amount of the time grimacing while seeing others grimace over that creamy, delicious looking, chocolate pudding.

Now, I am not saying that you can't make a pretty decent chocolate pudding with avocado, I just think you need to know it has avocado in it before eating it. (I also think it probably needed more sweetener and/or vanilla). I have decided to keep the sweet avocado creations to our family. Or, at the very least, let it be more obvious it is avocado.

This brings me to this avocado lime pudding, it really lets the avocado shine. Lime and avocado go together beautifully.

Usually that combo is saved for guacamole, or it's lesser known cousin avocado cream, but I thought that it would also go wonderfully in a sweet application.

Still don't know if I will be brave enough to take it to a potluck, but my whole family loves it. 🙂

Thankfully, it is a breeze to make. All that you need to do is blend avocado, lime juice, vanilla, a touch of salt, and sweetener of choice in a food processor.

Depending on how sweet you make it can go for breakfast, or a healthy dessert.

  1. Can we preserve this for a day or two without refrigerating?

  2. I just found this recipe. I was looking for something with a lime flavor and made with avocado. Bingo! It’s fabulous, and I’ll be serving it to guests as a topping for ginger spice cake.

    HI – I HATE avocados! Well at least I thought I did…. I made this today hoping to find a way to incorporate the good fat from avocados into my paleo way of eating.. I had all but given up til I tried this recipe. I made it just as stated and used agave syrup to sweeten. I was in heaven. I actually felt guilty eating it! Thanks – now maybe I might try that avocado green goddess dressing I saw on line somewhere…..

    I was wondering how much you consider a serving. We have a large family and I wanted to serve this tonight for dessert. I was planning on tripling the recipe but didn’t want to end up with lots left over. Just thought I’d ask before I go shopping. Thanks for your help and a great looking recipe that’s already got me salivating!

    • Hi there. The recipe states it makes 2-3 servings – thanks!

      • Jeannette says:

        Yes, I saw that the recipe stated the number of servings. I wanted clarification on what the actual amount in ounces, cups….. a serving was. I’m planning on serving it for dessert to 9 people so if a serving size is a large cereal bowl full as in the pics, I would end up with lots left over if I’m only serving small dessert cups of it. Thanks so much for replying though, Adrienne!

        • Hey Jeanette, the picture is actually a LOT of pudding. I really wanted to photograph a smaller amount, but simply did not have smaller bowls.

          I consider about 1/4-1/2 cup a serving (about 1 avocado). I usually do how many avocados we have ripe and serve that to my family 😀 (Be that the recipe as written or doubled, we down it for 5 of us)

          For 9 I would say at least triple the recipe. Hope this helps!

          • Jeannette says:

            Thanks so much, Debra! That’s what I thought but just wanted to make sure. Off to the store!

  5. I just made this and LOVE it. I used pure maple syrup to sweeten. Will definitely save this recipe!

  6. I made this tonight and my husband and I both loved it! I added a couple tablespoons of homemade coconut butter I wanted to use up and SweetLeaf liquid Vanilla Creme Stevia to taste. I can’t wait to make this again. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Are you SURE it was the avocado that caused the grimace? I have been making for myself some paleo chocolate candies, and lemme tell ya, they we so much of a disappointment to my sister (who thought she was biting into a gourmet chocolate candy) that she looked like she was going to cry! I used coconut oil, backing cocoa, some stevia and some maple syrup…oh and some powdered ginger and cinnamon.

    I think that the difference in the way I sweetened it had a huge role in that reaction. Heavily sugared desserts and candies taste a LOT different. It had just been so long since I’d eaten anything like that, that I didn’t realize how big that difference was until then.

    Of course, the avocado does add a ‘green’ flavor, but it’s VERY subtle compared to the difference the change in sweeteners can make. I was reminded, again, of that difference when I had one teaspoon of a friend’s chocolate shake from Wendy’s. Boy that thing TASTED amazingly good…but I know better than to indulge in that particular treat. LOL

    Anyway, can’t wait to try this recipe!

    • I made an avocado ice cream the other day and it was horrible but I think it was the stevia. I have to go back to the drawing board.

      • I think it was the unexpected avocado + not enough sweetener. Since I knew there was avocado in it I think I was prepared and was expecting a bit of avocado flavor. I also tend to eat things less sweet as that is how I am use to them. I know a lot of people really love chocomole (chocolate avocado pudding) but I think it does take a lot of sweetener.

        • Another thing it might have been is the stevia? Stevia can have an aftertaste and I think it takes a bit of getting used to. I used honey for the avocado pudding I took (and also make for our family). I realize that a lot of Whole New Moms need, and or prefer, sugar free so realize that might not be an option for everyone.
