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.

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
