Avocado Chocolate Pudding
It’s February! A love month! Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s also a Heart Awareness Month and I’m introducing you to two heart-strong foodies: avocado & dark chocolate.
My daughter used to LOVE avocado. I fed her avocados every single day since she was able to eat solids. When she was a little over one, on a random day, she wouldn’t eat it. She wouldn’t even touch it. I was so sad! I think it’s because I fed her a really over ripe avocado and it was not good. So I had a break from avocados for couple weeks. I believe when kids are not exposed to certain food repetitively, they stop liking it. It happened with hamburger for my daughter too. Consistency is everything!
My daughter loves chocolate so I figured this recipe would be a good way to ease her slowly into liking avocados again.
I love avocados. You don’t? That’s okay, my husband doesn’t either. Good news, you can barely taste the avocado flavor with this recipe. You taste chocolate! It doesn’t get better than that!
This recipe is from the blog, How Sweet It Is, however; I did few adjustments on my own because I didn’t want to make as much as the recipe makes. I also cleared up the measurements confusion and halved the recipe. It’s perfect for my little family.

I use a lot of apps that will give you cash back for grocery shopping, and Checkout 51 is my favorite. It lets you go to any grocery store and I save some money every single grocery trip I go (if I remember to use it! ha!). I used this app for 5 years now. Start saving here!
