Recipe: Avocado & Lentil Chocolate Pudding

Avocado & Lentil Chocolate Pudding

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Total time: 10 Minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) split red lentils
  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) brown or cane sugar
  • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) dried cherries or cranberries

1. Place lentils into a small pot with 1 cup (250 mL) water. Bring to a simmer and cook until lentils are tender, but have not broken down, about 4-5 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water, shaking off extra moisture.
2. Place lentils, avocados, coconut milk, sugar, cocoa, and vanilla into a food processor and puree until smooth in consistency. Scrape down sides and puree again until everything is incorporated. This can also be done with a fork or whisk.
3. Portion into four small bowls, garnish with dried cherries or cranberries and serve.
Quick tip: For a chilled dessert, refrigerate for 2-4 hours before serving.
