Servings 2 cups


  • 1 vanilla bean seeds scraped out (or 1 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup peeled pitted, and roughly chopped ripe avocado (about 1 large or 1 1/2 medium avocado)
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/3 cup raw or regular cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp orange zest zest orange first and then juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt don't omit, balances flavors


  1. In a food processor (or using the Blendtec twister jar, if you have it), puree all ingredients. Puree until very, very smooth, stopping processor to scrape down several times throughout processing. This pudding is very thick. If you’d like to thin it, you can do so with more orange juice, or a splash of nut milk or water. Serve or store in the refrigerator. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
