Dark Chocolate Avocado Pudding aka Brownie Batter (Yes – I said avocado)

Dark Chocolate Avocado Pudding aka Brownie Batter (Yes - I said avocado)

Warning: You will never stop wanting to eat this. This tastes like straight-up brownie batter.


I’m a health food fan — as in I like to allow myself to eat what I want, and with that I like to choose the healthiest options so I can feel less bad about it. 


Not even going to lie, I have heard about this recipe for about 5 years now, and never tried it until this weekend. I was wary — avocados in my dessert? Mmm.. think I’ll pass….. 


But NOT KIDDING, this tastes exactly like the best brownie batter I have ever had. And guess what’s in it…. nothing even close to as unhealthy as what’s in brownie batter. I honestly am still in shock that this ended up tasting as good as it does, and almost still don’t believe it. Guess I’ll just have to make it again? Yes!

5 ingredients + one food processor (or blender / Bullet / Ninja) = Done!


I made this for Thanksgiving so I could eat as much dessert as I wanted and not feel sick or gross after. Okay, maybe eating multiple avocados isn’t the lightest calorie option in the world, but you can’t argue that having 2 servings of this is better than the other processed options. Just my reasoning!


And whether you make this for the holidays or another dinner, or just for fun, I hope you enjoy it! Let me know how it turns out!

Dark Chocolate Avocado Pudding aka Brownie Batter (Yes - I said avocado)



Prep Time: 5 Minutes 

Chill Time: 20 Minutes

Total Time: 25 Minutes



  • 2 medium-sized ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder (you can use regular if you do not like the dark)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (any kind of milk will work, but I prefer almond because of it’s thickness and taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Cacao nibs or fresh raspberries/strawberries to garnish (optional)


Serves 3-6 people, depending on serving size. For a larger portion to serve more people, just double/triple the ingredients!



  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until completely smooth.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour (it is fine to eat sooner than that, or not refrigerate at all – this is just a suggestion!)
  3. Separate into individual bowls, shooters, mini cups, or serve in a big bowl with a serving spoon if family style.
