Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Mint Pudding

Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Mint Pudding RecipeI love the combination of chocolate and mint. It’s got all of the delicious decadence of chocolate along with the refreshing hint of mint. Together they are amazing.

 

So when we were looking for a healthy, sweet treat, I decided to adapt my Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Avocado Pudding recipe to be a Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Mint Pudding instead.

 

The result was delicious. Our batch quickly disappeared, and we’ll definitely make it again. My 6-year-old already asked if I can make another batch tomorrow.

 

Here’s how I made it:

Fruit-Sweetened Chocolate Mint Pudding

Ingredients

  • 2 large avocados
  • 1 cup pitted dates (I used 6 date rolls – which are pureed dates rolled in coconut)
  • 5 tablespoons cacao powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk (coconut, almond, cow, or whatever you want to use)
  • 2 drops Peppermint essential oil

Instructions

  1. Puree all ingredients in your food processor or blender until smooth.
  2. Serve and enjoy.

Notes

For a thicker pudding, use less milk. For a smoother pudding, soak the dates in the milk for an hour or two before pureeing. For a lighter chocolate taste, use less cacao powder. If you’re using medium-sized avocados, you’ll either want to increase the number of avocados to 3, or reduce the cacao accordingly (likely to 3 tablespoons or so). Also, please make sure that you’re using oils from a company that produces Food Grade Essential Oils (most essential oils are NOT – trust me, you don’t want to eat those). Please see my link below for what I use.
