Serves: 1 serving
Ingredients
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 frozen banana (optional)
  • ¼c coconut milk (full fat = creamier pudding)
  • ¼ to ½ tsp vanilla extract*
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
  • to serve: whatever toppings you want!
  • If you want to make chocolate avocado pudding, add 2 Tbsp cocoa powder + 1 Tbsp sweetener.
Directions
  1. Peel and slice your banana - stick it in a tupperware in the freezer for about an hour or two (or overnight) before you're ready to eat.
  2. When you're ready to eat, put your frozen banana pieces in the food processor and turn it on for about 20-30 seconds, until it stops jumping around. Remove the avocados from its skin and discard the pit, then add the green flesh and coconut milk to the food processor.
  3. Blend until creamy. Add in the vanilla extract, maple syrup, and cocoa powder, if using. Blend until all the ingredients are incorporated and there are no more chunks.
  4. Scrape down the sides as necessary. Taste and sweeten as desired.
  5. Serve cold, with fun toppings. You can also pop it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes to make ice cream!
