#Honestgoodness Recipe: Avocado and Agave Chocolate Pudding

"When we serve it up, the response is that the pudding is “better than pudding cups!” It gets a “one thousand!” on a scale of one to five. As class ends, students line up with chocolate-stained mouths and outstretched hands, asking for extra recipes to bring to aunts and uncles, grandparents and siblings."

— FoodCorps Service Member Rebecca Cohen, Sells, AZ

Sweets are in season this month and finding healthy alternatives can be challenging! Fortunately for us, our friends at FoodCorps, our Social Goodness partner, has a solution. They've made it their mission to keep kids connected to healthier food from natural sources that are close and culturally relevant and keep their tastebuds tickled. As you can tell from the quote above, mission accomplished!

Here's a delicious dessert recipe that they created with the kids of the Tohono O'odham reservation in Arizona. Click here to read more about their experience over at Cooking Light and check out Honest Jessica baking up some Social Goodness for their blog, Simmer and Boil!



2 ripe avocados

½ cup cocoa powder

2  tsp vanilla extract

½ cup agave syrup

½ cup coconut milk

bananas or other fruit for dipping

  1. Chop the avocado into a few medium-sized pieces and put it in a food processor or heavy-duty blender.
  2. Add the cocoa powder, vanilla, agave syrup and coconut milk to the food processor and blend on high for about thirty seconds, or until pudding reaches desired consistency.
  3. Taste the pudding to see if you want to make any adjustments. If you want it sweeter or more chocolatey, you might want to adjust the measurements to your preference.
  4. Serve with cut fruit for dipping!

Makes 6 servings.
