My family has recently gone vegan and we LOVE chocolate! I decided to create a pudding that I know all of us would love that also followed our vegan diet. My favorite things together are chocolate and caramel so this satisfies the cravings! Please try this, you will be surprised. Best thing I have ever had!!!

This plant-based pudding is amazing even if you aren't living a vegan lifestyle. Creamy and full of chocolate flavor, the pudding is fantastic. No one would guess it's made with avocados. The caramel sauce is a nice topping. It's not super thick but does make the pudding special. Coconut milk whipped cream on top is not the exact same as regular whipped cream, but we loved a dollop on top. It's a great dessert vegans and non-vegans will love.

How To Make chocolate avocado love pudding

Test Kitchen Tips
The caramel sauce makes a lot and you will have some leftover. Depending on your blender, you may have to use an immersion blender to make the coconut whipped cream. In our blender, the ingredients did not reach the blades.
  • Avocados, cocoa powder, sugar, almond milk, vanilla in a food processor.
    Pudding: Add slightly mashed avocados, cocoa powder, sugar, almond milk, vanilla to a blender or food processor.
  • Ingredients blended together.
    Blend until well combined.
  • Avocado pudding in a bowl.
    Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  • Sugar and water in a saucepan.
    Caramel Sauce: Put the 1 cup sugar in a pot/saucepan. Add enough water until the sugar is all wet (about 1/4 cup water). Place on heat and let cook until it turns a caramel/brownish color.
  • Pouring almond milk into the saucepan.
    Add the almond milk and stir until well combined.
  • Butter, salt, and vanilla added to the saucepan.
    Then add the butter, salt, and vanilla.
  • Caramel sauce poured in a bowl to chill.
    Chill in the fridge.
  • Blending chilled coconut milk, sugar, and vanilla.
    Coconut whipped Cream: Chill one can of coconut milk in a fridge overnight. Open the can and separate the liquid from the chilled coconut. Place the chilled (hard) coconut in a blender. Add sugar and vanilla.
