Easy 5-Ingredient Avocado Chocolate Pudding {paleo & vegan}

avocado chocolate pudding in cup with whipped topping

This vegan chocolate pudding made with avocados couldn’t be easier! Just five ingredients, ready in five minutes and kid-friendly. Grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free and paleo.


  • 4 ripe medium avocados, pitted and fleshed
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup*
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 34 TBSP  non-dairy milk use as much as needed to get thick, smooth consistency.


  1. In a small food processor bowl or blender cup – add avocado, maple syrup, cocoa powder and vanilla. Begin blending and scraping down the sides of the cup as necessary to get things moving.
  2. Add milk 1-2 tablespoons at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Scrape around the cup/bowl and blend for an extra 5-10 seconds at the end to make sure the pudding is smooth.
  3. Top with your favorite whipped topping and chocolate shavings for a special treat.
  4. This Avocado Chocolate Pudding can be used in dirt cups or as a fruit dip as well!


You can use part honey, part maple syrup if needed. Using all honey may not mask the avocado as well as maple syrup does. I have only tried this recipe with maple syrup, myself.
