This vegan chocolate avocado pudding is my new favourite healthy snack. I’ve come across several recipes for healthy chocolate pudding made with avocado lately, but what I love about this particular recipe is that it’s refined sugar free and calls for date paste as a natural alternative sweetener.
Chocolate avocado pudding recipes often call for maple syrup, but I think date paste is a healthier option because it’s much higher in fibre and contains more vitamins and antioxidants than maple syrup. Plus it has a more neutral sweetness, as opposed to maple syrup which obviously imparts a maple flavour.
