Chocolate Protein Pudding Ingredients

  • Avocados: These provide a creamy, buttery texture that forms the base of our pudding. Rich in healthy fats, and protein and virtually undetectable in taste, avocados make this pudding irresistibly smooth without overpowering the chocolate flavor.
  • Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder: A key ingredient for boosting the protein content, vegan protein powder also enhances the chocolatey taste. It mixes seamlessly into the pudding, adding both flavor and substance. Go to my shop to get a discount on both OWYN and KOS, they both work amazingly for this recipe!
  • Cacao Powder: Loaded with antioxidants, cacao powder not only deepens the chocolate flavor but also adds a healthful boost, making each spoonful both rich and rejuvenating.
  • Vanilla Extract: Just a hint of vanilla enhances the complex flavors of chocolate and masks the subtle taste of avocado, rounding out the sweet and savory notes of the pudding.
  • Coconut Milk: Adds a creamy, tropical flavor and helps blend all the ingredients into a smooth consistency. Coconut milk is also great for adding richness without dairy.
  • Maple Syrup: Optional for those who prefer a sweeter pudding. Since the protein powder often contains sweeteners, the addition of maple syrup depends on your taste preference.

How to Make Chocolate Protein Pudding

Start by adding ripe avocados, vegan chocolate protein powder, cacao powder, vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and coconut milk into a blender or food processor. Blend everything until the mixture becomes silky smooth. For those who like it sweeter, adjust the sweetness with maple syrup to taste. 

Once blended, pour the pudding into glass jars, and top with cacao nibs and a sprig of fresh mint for an extra touch of freshness and elegance. This simple process makes a deliciously smooth chocolate pudding that’s ready in minutes!

Can You Use Whey Protein Powder?

While this recipe is designed to be completely vegan, whey protein powder can be used as an alternative if you’re not avoiding dairy or if it’s what you have on hand. Whey protein blends well and adds a creamy texture, making it a suitable option for those who prefer it. If you are going to use a non-vegan protein make sure its flavor still compliments the recipe!

Chocolate Protein Pudding Tips and Tricks

To ensure your chocolate pudding is perfectly creamy and flavorful, here are a few tips:

  • Choose avocados that are just the right ripeness—not too hard and not overly ripe—to achieve the smoothest texture.
  • If using a sweetened protein powder, you might want to skip the additional sweeteners. Taste as you blend to adjust the sweetness to your liking.
  • For an extra smooth texture, sieve the mixture to remove any unblended bits of avocado or cacao.

Notes

** aim to use soft but not too ripe of an avocado.
**I opted for a vegan protein powder. I like KOS and OWYN. They taste amazing, combine beautifully and are clean and additive-free. They are both available for a discount in my shop!
** the sweetener is completely optional. I find that the addition of a protein powder that’s sweet is not needed. But please add as much sweetener as you’d like to taste. I’d suggest blending without the sweetener. Testing it and adding sweetener to your liking 🙂
