Creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding

healthy peanut butter pudding

Oh my, what have I done!?
Just when I was gaining some self control back after the Easter holiday and finalizing plans for an upcoming beach trip (hello swimsuits!) I go and do something like this.

It started when I got this crazy idea to add a little something to an already delicious treat. I figured adding a bit of peanut butter to this recipe wouldn’t hurt any. It’s true, it didn’t hurt in the slightest.
Except for maybe my conscience, because I’ve just had my fair share.

After indulging in this stuff, still, all I can think about is creamy, peanut buttery, chocolaty pudding. It’s so completely creamy and dreamy that my control goes out the door. Saying it’s healthy really isn’t a justification! It’s vegan, refined sugar free and gluten free so it’s totally healthy!

Well, in moderate amounts anyway.Avocado OD isn’t possible, is it?

Creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding (vegan and gluten free)
Print Recipe

1 Large Ripe Avocado
1/3 cup Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup Agave
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup Almond Milk
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
Dash of Pink Salt
Optional: Liquid Stevia to taste

In a food processor or with a hand mixer, combine the ripe avocado and peanut butter until very smooth. Add the agave and mix well. Add the almond milk and cocoa powder. You can add a bit more almond milk or cocoa powder to reach your desired consistency. Mix until smooth. Add vanilla, salt and stevia if desired. The peanut butter makes this pudding a little less sweet and more rich than our other chocolate pudding recipe. If you have a strong sweet tooth, I recommend adding a few drops. Continue mixing the pudding until all ingredients are well combined and you have a perfectly creamy pudding. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or enjoy immediately!

  2. Why didn’t I think of this before !? You are a genius. Chocolate & peanut butter are meant to be !! (sorry for my problem with the previous comment)

  3. I really need to try the whole avocado pudding thing! I’ve seen it used in a couple recipes now and I’m so curious! Your pudding looks soooo yummy and creamy! Plus peanut butter and chocolate is my FAVORITE combo. Yum yum!

  4. I really need to try this! I’ve never used avocado with sweets.

  5. Ah these photos are killing me! It’s still only 9:30 in the morning here and I want to go eat one now!

  6. Self control? What is that? ;) haha. I want one of these now!! The beautiful pictures are torture. Chocolate and I meet at least once daily. We’ll never break up <3

  7. I love avocado pudding, but I have never thought to add peanut butter to it. I can totally see how I would od on this treat, peanut butter cups are my favorite after all :)

  8. I love chocolate.
    I love peanut butter.
    And I know I would love this! It looks awesome!! :)

  9. Usually I always wonder if I could add peanut butter to any chocolatey recipe, but I never thought of adding it to avocado pudding! Such an awesome idea :D Trying this next time I make avocado pudding!

  10. Talk about decadent chocolate pudding! Yours is definitely richer and creamier… I’m feeling a bit jealous now!

  11. You said the magic words! Chocolate and peanut butter is the most delectable and irresistible combo! The avocado is intriguing.

  12. This look SO delish, could you use regular milk instead of almond milk?

  13. Do you happen to have any nutrition facts for this recipe?

    • Yes we do! Sorry we don’t post nutrition facts, we’ll try to start doing that. Thanks to the peanut butter and avocado, this is an extremely rich pudding. Calories do depend on the brand of ingredients you use- If serving 2- 405 calories with 21 grams of fat and 15 grams of protein in each serving. If you spit up the pudding in 3 ways, each serving has 271 calories, 12 grams of fat and 10 grams of protein. It’s probably better in 3 servings since it’s such a rich pudding! Thanks for the comment!

    • Thanks! I just wanted to cross check your calculations with mine! Pretty close. I only used half an avocado, though.

    • You’re welcome, sorry it took awhile to post the info. I like the idea of using only half the avocado- hope you liked it!

  14. OMG!!! I sooo have to try this.

  15. I made this today. It was too rich for me, very peanut-y and thick. It did look just like the picture though. I think it is a lot of fats at one go (even if they are good fats).

  16. This looks delicious, I will definitely try it out!! Thanks for the recipe.

  17. This is the creamiest, most beautiful pudding in the WORLD! Try ya’ll! Loved it!
