Chocolate Avocado Pudding – Where Chocolate Meets Spicey!/h2>
Why have not both in a delicious Mexican Hot Chocolate Avocado Pudding??
Mexican hot chocolate is traditionally a hot beverage made with milk (in some form – condensed, evaporated, cream, etc.), cocoa powder or chocolate and cayenne pepper! The result is a deliciously creamy and warm brew with a hint of spice. The cayenne pepper, when nestled between the flavors of cream and chocolate, adds a subtle glow to eat sip you take.
We were inspired by the flavors of Mexican hot chocolate so we decided to make take that and bring it into our avocado pudding recipe!
Avocado is a great thickener to shakes, smoothies, baked goods and an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Not to mention it’s full of fat and fiber to keep you full longer! Avocados can easily be turned into pudding with the addition of a few ingredients! Cocoa powder packs delicious chocolate flavor and fiber, while a mix of erythritol, stevia and vanilla extract add just the right amount of sweetness to mask the avocado taste perfectly (while keeping it low carb, as always!). If you’re strictly paleo, feel free to use extra stevia to taste or your favorite sweetener, agave nectar or maple syrup would be great here!
We also added cinnamon and Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. Cinnamon works very well with the flavor of chocolate and the sea salt really brings out the sweetness. Sweet and salty go together! If you’ve got some nutmeg on hand, that would go really well in this avocado pudding as well!
