Following a keto diet often means creating recipes using the food you’re allowed to eat.
I created a complete keto food list, and of course, avocado is on the list, as is non-dairy milk and cream.
When you add cocoa, sweetener and whip it up, you’ll know exactly how delicious this pudding really is.
Nobody Will Never Ever Know, Not Even The Kids
Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding is the quickest chocolate fix for anyone following a keto diet.
Who knew that you could make keto desserts with avocado and the best part is no one will know your secret unless you tell them.
Avocados In Keto Dessert Recipes
Avocados are showing up in all kinds of Keto dessert recipes, many of which we have yet to try.
- Chocolate avocado brownies
- Avocado smoothies
- An Avocado mousse
- Delicious Avocado cookies and cakes
Tastes Like Chocolate Pudding
I created this chocolate pudding recipe for my wife since she is on a keto diet and occasionally likes something sweet to indulge in.
We had a slightly sweeter version of an avocado chocolate pudding at a dinner party we attended a few years back.
We were in awe that the entire chocolate pudding was made from avocado but sweetened with honey.
Shocked doesn’t begin to describe our reaction as it tastes exactly like traditional chocolate pudding.
This Keto avocado chocolate pudding is so easy that you can whip it up while your guests are having a chat or as a last-minute keto dessert idea.
It takes about 10 minutes from start to finish unless you want to chill it longer than 5 minutes.
You will want your avocados to be nice and ripe, so they are easy to blend, and organic is always best but will cost more.
Varities of Avocados
There are many types of avocado at the grocery store and farmers’ markets.
We prefer the organic avocado best for the buttery, nutty flavour if we can find it on sale.
If not, a bag of 6 avocados typically will cost around $3.99 in Ontario at the grocery store.
There are many varieties of avocado which originate in Central America, Mexico and are also known as the Aligator Pear.
What is an Avocado?
Avocado is a fruit containing a large seed that you can easily take out with a knife or even a spoon if it’s ripe enough.
Avocados are commercially valuable and are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates throughout the world.
They have a green-skinned, fleshy body that may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped, or spherical. Commercially, they ripen after harvesting.
Avocado trees are partially self-pollinating and often are propagated through grafting to maintain a predictable quality and quantity of the fruit.- Source Wikipedia
Sweeteners For Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding
Besides the ingredients in my Avocado Chocolate Pudding recipe, I added other ingredients for those not on a ketogenic diet.
Using raw honey instead of Stevia and pure maple syrup will add a delicious sweetness if you aren’t fond of sugar substitutes.
Below are keto-friendly sugar sweeteners as options to sweeten your pudding.
- Monk Fruit
- Torani Sugar-free Syrups
- Sugar-free maple syrup we typically buy Ed.Smith for $2.99 at Food Basics or you can find Mrs. Butterworth’s Sugar-Free Syrup for $3.99
- Sukrin Gold Brown Sugar
- Swerve Brown Sugar
- Extracts you can find at the Bulk Barn or on Amazon for the best prices. We keep a stock of our favourite flavours such as pure vanilla, maple, banana and, almond extract.
Dairy Alternatives For Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding
I’ve also mentioned that you can use 35% whipping cream, which I did here or alternatives such as unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk.
Any or all of the above would keep this recipe keto.
There are likely other types of milk out there that would work equally well based on diet and lifestyle.
- Oat Milk
- Soy Milk
- Almond Milk
- Macadamia Milk
- Coconut Milk
You can find all of these delicious milk options at your local Costco Canada.

Toppings For Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding
If you don’t have a blender or hand blender, you can use a hand masher and lots of elbow grease, but you really do want the avocado chocolate pudding to be silky in texture.
On top of this Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding, I added a dollop of homemade sugar-free whipped cream and hemp hearts for a crunchy texture.
Keto avocado chocolate pudding is thick and doesn’t take long to set if you refrigerate it to chill.
You can eat this avocado chocolate pudding straight from the bowl once you’re done giving it a good mix.
Nobody you feed this avocado chocolate pudding to will know that you used avocado unless you serve it in the avocado shell as I did.
I thought using the avocado’s outer shell would make the perfect presentation for this dessert.
How To Make Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding
I’ve calculated the net carbs to be 3 per serving for those on a keto-diet or Atkins Diet.
If you leave the sugar-free whipped topping and hemp hearts off, this will reduce your net carbs by 1.
