Chocolate is a girl’s best friend. Or wait, that’s diamonds. I vote both.. and wine. Just so happens, this pudding would go great with a glass of red wine. Diamonds just go with everything.
But honestly, I’ve seen tons of recipes floating around the interwebs using avocado in desserts for the extra creaminess that you can often get from, well, cream or butter. Plus the health benefits of avocados are undeniable. I figured I’d give it a spin <– get it? Because I made it in the Vitamix… I’m on a roll today!
