Creamy avocados make this dairy-free and vegan chocolate dessert recipe super-rich. Serve as a not-so-sweet dessert or with strawberries for dipping.

Heidele’s suggestion of eliminating the dates and increasing the maple syrup removes the healthy dates (and their accompanying fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants), and pumps up the very-little-healthful added pure maple sugar. Not something I am going to follow, just to reduce some perceived possible slight graininess. Secondly, the accompanying video makes no mention of adding coconut oil, nor is there any mention of adding sea salt. Plus, the video processes the avocado in AFTER the rest has been well-processed, but the written instructions say otherwise. This is not the best presentation of a video-recipe combination that I have ever come across, which is disappointing for an EatingWell project, all things considered.

This Pudding is off the chart DELICOUS. I made it as directed but took Heidele's advice and eliminated the date.

Delicious Really tasty! I used Unsweetened Cashew milk, and it turned out wonderfully. Dates are a nutritional powerhouse, and make delicious treats. Pros: Easy Cons: Hard to wait for it to chill :)

Great alternative to dairy-based chocolate pudding Super smooth and tastes better after two days! I will try this recipe again but with only maple syrup and no dates. Pros: Great chocolate flavor, easy to make, full of nutritious ingredients Cons: a little grainy from the processed dates
