The avocado complements the black onyx cocoa for a pudding that looks and tastes like the real thing. It’s even dairy free. There are also a few flavoring options to take the dish in different directions depending on your tastes.



*For different flavor options, try using almond extract or vanilla extract instead of coconut extract. You can also use soy milk, almond milk or regular milk instead of coconut milk. Another way to change up the flavor is to add ½ to 1 tsp. of cinnamon, cayenne or peanut butter.


Slice avocado in half, remove the pit, scoop out the fruit and add it to a blender or food processor with the rest of the ingredients. (Tip: Start with 1 tsp. extract and stir in more to taste once you’ve blended the mixture.) Blend until smooth. You may need to stop a few times and scrape down the sides of the blender. Add a bit of additional milk if necessary to achieve desired consistency. Serve right away or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serving Suggestions

Garnish with toasted coconut, sliced almonds or chopped peanuts depending on the flavor option you go with.

"I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome website. A friend sent me your website and I was like a kid in a candy store seeing your wide variety of spices, salts, herbs, etc. Being someone that's not extremely well versed in what I'd consider 'exotic' ingredients, it was an absolute pleasure to see the products' history, uses, taste and general information. Just wanted to voice my appreciation. Thanks so much!"
