Paleo Chocolate Pudding

Y'all, I'm so excited for you to hear from my sweet friend Ali! She's shared a recipe for Cilantro Lime Crock Pot Tacos here before, and yum! I make them all the time :) She's back to share a yummy Paleo dessert for you.

Chocolate is my favorite! As a gluten-free and dairy-free foodie, I like to get creative with chocolate recipes. This super simple, super healthy chocolate avocado pudding is one of my frequent go-to treats. It's gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, all-natural, and even Whole30 approved!


  • 1 avocado
  • 1 large banana, or 2 small bananas
  • 1 tsp melted coconut oil
  • 5-8 pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of cinnamon (optional, but it's SO good)
  • food processor or blender


Soak dates in warm water for a few minutes, and blend in food processor first. Then, add all other ingredients. Taste test, and make sure you like the flavor and texture. You might want to add a little more dates, cocoa, or water. Put in the fridge for 30 minutes (if you can wait that long), and then enjoy! Serves 2 people, but I could eat the entire serving in one sitting.
