What’s better than classic creamy chocolate pudding? Classic creamy chocolate pudding with avocados! In this recipe, avocados turn run-of-the-mill chocolate pudding into a healthier – but still delicious – dessert. It’s completely OK to enjoy a sugary dessert the way it was intended, but sometimes it’s fun to “healthify” desserts.
The addition of avocado to this pudding adds important nutrients like monounsaturated fats, potassium, fiber, vitamin C, vitamin E and even some protein. For a picky senior, this is a great option, as it tastes just like traditional pudding but contains some hidden nutrients. This pudding is also a perfect calorie-dense dessert option for an underweight senior or someone struggling with malnourishment.
