Although it might be unusual to include a typically savory ingredient- avocado- in a sweet setting, here it totally works. Not only does the subtle avocado flavor nicely complement the pudding’s chocolate intensity, but it makes for a wonderfully creamy texture without eggs or dairy. The net result is a dessert that’s dairy-free, vegan, and raw plus healthy and delicious. You’re welcome. This chocolate avocado pudding recipe is from The Clean Plates Cookbook ($17; Running Press) by Jared Koch with Jill Silverman Hough.
