I love avocados. They have a distinct creamy taste and full of all the good kind of fat your body needs. I decided to to try a chocolate pudding. I have had avocado in ice cream so I figured it would be similar in the pudding. I found an avocado chocolate pudding recipe from penniesonaplatter.com. I made the recipe exactly how it was designed to be made, however, there was a powerful avocado taste that overpowered the chocolate. I couldn’t add much more chocolate as it would be too bitter. I chose to alter this recipe by adding 1 drop of peppermint essential oil that can be ingested. WOW! The peppermint oil cut the avocado taste and I was able to taste the chocolate better as well. The taste was a chocolate mint pudding, which is perfect for me as I LOVE chocolate mint.
The texture of the pudding was smooth and creamy and wouldn’t even guess it to have an avocado base. I would suggest chilling the pudding. It tasted really good cold. I am glad to have a healthy alternative to pudding when I am in the mood for it.
