This 6 ingredient Keto Chocolate Pudding is so rich, creamy, silky smooth, and delicious you won’t believe it’s Keto, Paleo, and Vegan! It can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes and is a totally addictive, dreamy chocolate dessert.
Keto Chocolate Pudding
You will never believe this Keto Chocolate Pudding is dairy free, Paleo, and vegan! It’s rich, super smooth and creamy, and is similar to the milk chocolate Snack Pack puddings I grew up on as a kid. It’s a super fast and easy snack or dessert and can easily be put in a small container and sent in the kiddos lunchboxes. Just because you’re Keto, Paleo, or dairy free doesn’t mean you need to be deprived of your favorite chocolate pudding!
Yup, this pudding has avocados in it. But this isn’t your traditional avocado pudding!!! Most chocolate puddings made with avocados have a strong avocado taste, which I don’t particular care for. So for the sake of taste, I add in coconut cream. The coconut cream gives the pudding more of a milk chocolate taste and really reduces the avocado flavor. So we get the ease of a chocolate avocado pudding with all the good fats and benefits of avocado, but without the strong taste – YAY!!!
Easy Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding Instructions
In the bowl of a food processor, add all of the ingredients… 2 ripe avocados, 1/2 cup coconut cream, 1 Tbsp. vanilla, 1/2 cup powdered sweetener, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, and 1/4 cup of non-dairy milk.
For The Sweetener
I prefer Powdered Swerve or Powdered Lakanto Sweetener (affiliate links) – both are low-carb and Keto friendly. You can use any sweetener you prefer, as long as it powdered. If you follow more a Paleo diet, though, you can use honey. If you use honey you’ll need to thicken it a bit more by adding a little extra coconut cream and avocado.
For Coconut Cream
Place a can of full-fat canned coconut milk in the fridge for 24 hours then scoop out the coagulated cream. I only recommend Thai Kitchen, Sprouts, and Native Forest brands because other brands may not separate well or have a funny aftertaste.
Process on high until completely smooth and creamy. If mixture is too thin, add more avocado. Or if it’s too thick, thin with non-dairy milk. Taste and add more sweetener if needed.
Serve immediately with coconut whipped cream and berries and enjoy!!!
Tips For Perfect Avocado Pudding
- When picking avocados, look for ones that are firm with a slight give. Also look for avocados with the stem still attached. If the stem is missing it’s more likely that the avocados have brown spots inside.
- If your avocados have big brown spots inside, don’t use them! If they have brown spots, it will make the pudding taste “off” – off pudding, lol! I’m ridiculous, I know!
- Traditional chocolate avocado puddings have much too strong of an avocado taste (for me anyways!). So for the sake of taste, I always add coconut cream. Coconut cream gives it more of a milk chocolate taste and cuts back on the avocado flavor. Every now and then my coconut cream is rock hard. If this happens to you, just scoop it into a small bowl and pop it in the microwave for a few seconds, or until it’s just slightly soft – being sure not to melt it.
- If the pudding is too thin, add more avocado. If it’s too thick, thin with additional non-dairy milk.
- Be sure to taste the pudding and adjust the sweetness to your liking.
- For the sweetener, I prefer Powdered Swerve or Powdered Lakanto Sweetener (affiliate links) – both are low-carb and Keto friendly. However, you can use any sweetener you prefer, as long as it powdered.
- If you are Paleo and prefer to use honey instead of Swerve or Lakanto, omit the powdered sweetener, use 1/2 cup honey, up the coconut cream to 2/3 cups, and add additional avocado to thicken as needed.
