Easy 5-Ingredient Avocado Chocolate Pudding

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.


Units Scale
  • 4 ripe medium avocados, pitted and fleshed
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup*
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (or sub cacao powder)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 34 tablespoons 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.
