Grab Spoons; It’s National Chocolate Pudding Day

. at . Leave a comment

It’s the start of a good week when National Chocolate Pudding Day makes its entrance, June 26. Go here for more information about chocolate pudding day. Since chocolate is something my palette adores, I decided to celebrate this day by making pudding. I started the celebration by making this simple vegan chocolate chia pudding from yummy mummy kitchen. It serves 2.

I shook the below four ingredients into a mason jar and let them sit overnight in the fridge. My recipe is slightly different.

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 6 Tbsp chia seeds – It needs this many for the pudding to set properly
  • 2 Tbsp cocao nibs
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp unsweetened Dutch Processed cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp Xyla – taste and see if this is sweet enough for you

Next, I made my single serving Orange Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Finally I decided to try a pudding I’ve heard of but never had the taste bud guts to try – a pudding with avocado as the base. 

This three ingredient pudding from Christina Najjar caught my eye. Blenderize the below ingredients.

  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder or raw cacao
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup

I didn’t have maple syrup so I didn’t make the above recipe. Instead I made the one below. Raw honey came to the rescue. A friend gave me some last week.

Pecans are not in the recipe. I had some on the counter and added them instead of coconut or almonds

You need to fuss only a bit more, to make this avocado chocolate pudding  from the fitchen. Below are the ingredients.

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 Tbsp raw honey
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 6 Tbsp. coconut milk [from carton, unsweetened]
  • pinch of sea salt
  • crushed almonds [optional]
  • coconut flakes [optional]
  • 2 Tbsp cocao nibs   – I added these – yum,

My impressions.

  • The colour and consistency are absolutely yummy – perfect in fact.
  • However I didn’t love the taste. I could taste the avocado which is normally fine because I LIKE avocado. But in this case I wanted to taste only chocolate.
  • I think the problem lies with how much avocado is used. Since I have never made a recipe like this before, I need a more precise measurement than “1 ripe avocado.” I want something that gives measurements like “1 cup avocado.”
  • Finally, the mixture did not want to blend well in my blender (not at all). Next time I will use an immersion blender.
  • And there will be a next time for me. The next time avocados are on sale, I will buy a six-pack and see about perfecting  a more precise recipe for my taste buds.

Sometime I want to try this Cashew Chia Cacao Nib Pudding..
