Instant Chocolate-Banana Pudding (dairy-free)

This recipe is much easier to make in a high-powered blender (like a VitaMix or Blendtec), and the consistency will be much better if you use one of these machines; but a regular blender can get the job done if necessary.

Makes 2 – 2 1/2 cups (about 4 small servings)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup pure honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large (or 1 1/2 medium) avocado (about 10 oz total, measured whole – ideally, chilled in fridge*)
  • 2 frozen bananas*

DIRECTIONS:

If you are using a regular blender (not a high-powered VitaMix or Blendtec), set bananas out to thaw a bit – for about 10 minutes. Then, break the bananas each into a few chunks.

Add ingredients to the blender in the order listed above, and blend until smooth.

If you use a standard blender, you will need to stop several times to scrape the sides and push the ingredients down.

We enjoy this best eaten immediately, but you may store it in the fridge for later if you prefer.

*Especially if you are eating the pudding immediately, it’s best to start with VERY cold bananas and avocados, so the pudding will be chilled right away and ready-to-eat! 🙂
