Vitamix Vegan Avocado and Cacao Pudding

There are few things more fun than the simplicity of a great recipe that whips up quick and satisfies unconditionally.

And for those of you that say, “…hang on! Avocado in a dessert, are you crazy?”

Avocado is a tasty and healthy way to add incredible texture to a pudding or dessert. Trust me.

This dessert comes together quickly with the Vitamix – its texture is Bistro quality and the taste is out of this World!

Let’s go!

Count them – 5 ingredients

2 Avocados, ripe (of course!)

Refrigerated 1/2 cup Almond (or Soy or Oat milk, unsweetened…)

1/2 cup Maple syrup

Place all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend on high until the ingredients have broken down.
