Easy Chocolate Banana Avocado Pudding

If you like bananas, you’ll like this rich and creamy dark chocolate pudding.

The bananas add some natural sweetness and the avocados create the silky texture. You wouldn’t even know there is avocado in it if we didn’t tell you.


  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 4 Tbsp. maple syrup or agave
  • 8 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process for a couple of minutes until smooth and creamy.

Transfer to a bowl and cover bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or more to set the pudding. The recipe can be made the night before.

Optional: Add raspberries
