4 Ingredient Avocado Pudding

This 4-ingredient vegan avocado pudding is so luxuriously creamy – it makes a delicious and healthier summer treat and can be customized to fit into even a keto diet.

**This recipe for avocado pudding was first published back in August 2013. I have updated the pictures and post and I am re-sharing this favorite of our’s here today.**

What are the FOUR ingredients to make avocado pudding?

• Ripe avocados,
• Lemon juice,
• Sugar or sweetener of your choice,
• Almond/coconut milk or milk of your choice,
blended up together result in this delicious treat!

Long before Kourtney Kardashian was chomping on her infamous poosh-approved, Avo Pudding, my mom was making avocado pudding for my sister and me when we were crazy toddlers.

I gotta confess, back in the day any green pudding was eyed suspiciously by us kids.

Green pudding always had me thinking what kinda sneaky shenanigans was my mom up to?!

But – one taste of her avocado pudding would perish all sorts of illusions of a healthy treat!

My Mom’s Avocado Pudding Dessert!

My mom never used a blender to get her avocado pudding smooth. When we were in Sri Lanka, my mom would get her hands on some of the tastiest ripe avocadoes. She would remove their skin and throw the flesh into a bowl. Then, she would grab a fork and mash away!

Into the mashed avocado, my mom would add in a few splashes of milk, a few squeezes of lime juice (limes were plentiful in Sri Lanka), and cane sugar to sweeten it. She would then bring bowlfuls to us and we would gobble that pudding up – even licking the bowl clean!

The avocado pudding my mom made was deliriously delicious. Rich and creamy, to me that avocado pudding was better than ice cream!

And, since I got out of college and graduated onto a diet that included more than ramen noodles, I have been making avocado pudding. So, it made sense to share it on this little blog of mine.

Why we love this vegan pudding?

  1. So Creamy (IMO it’s creamier than ice cream),
  2. So Tasty,
  3. So Healthy,
  4. So Easy (no cooking or baking involved), &
  5. So Adaptable!

This pudding you see here today is so luxuriously creamy. It tastes so indulgent. But, it was and always has been, a really healthier snacking option.


When my daughter was a toddler (and before she started attending birthday parties of other little humans) I managed to convince her that this avocado pudding and yogurt were ice cream.

Yes, I know that’s absolutely evil – but, I felt if I played my parenting cards right, she’d grow up and love this pudding as much as I did.

Even though she went through a period when she rebelled against all colored foods once she had the wool lifted off her toddler’s eyes, she did enjoy this pudding.

And, she does enjoy this pudding often – even now. In fact, she even suggested we make these into popsicles this summer!


How to make avocado pudding?

This plant-based pudding is so incredibly easy to make!

Gather the avocados, almond milk, sugar (or sweetener). lemon juice, and salt and place it in a blender

Blend until well processed.

Chill for about an hour…aaaannnnd

Enjoy!

The avocado pudding my mom makes calls for the use of milk and very ripe avocadoes. But, the one I am sharing here today uses full fat coconut milk which makes this a vegan avo pudding.

If you’d like to leave the lemon juice out, then you have to eat this as soon as you whip it up as it will turn an ugly shade of greyish brown.

However, if you do add in the lemon juice, you can chill this for a couple of hours and enjoy it as a healthier dessert option to ice cream. Sometimes, we even top this with whipped vanilla coconut cream.

Adaptations To Make This Keto-Friendly:

If you’d like to tailor this to fit into a keto-friendly diet, you could sub the sugar with a keto-friendly sweetener and use heavy cream for the coconut milk.

Adaptations To Make This Sugar-Free:

If you are avoiding or restricting sugar, you can still enjoy this creamy delicious pudding. My mom is diabetic now and still enjoys this pudding. She uses this birch sweetener (Amazon affiliate link) to sweeten this. Or, you could use any keto-friendly sweetener as well.

    Do u have to use the creamer blender to make it like yours?
    Could you use normal milk instead of almond milk?

      . Tastes amazing and an easier way for me to eat them. Thanks.

    • Shashi says:

      Hi Ella – any blender would work, you don’t have to use the blender I have. In fact, even an electric handheld mixer should work – that’s what my mom used to use when we were little when she made us avocado pudding. Also, yes, you may use regular milk as well.

That said, it’s probably the most delicious looking treat that I have seen all day. Thanks for republishing this post!

    So much Yaaaaaaaassss to this pudding, Shashi!!! I am absolutely swooning over the green color!!! But, much like you, I probably would have given it a suspicious look when I was younger! Just goes to prove how crazy we were when we were children. 😉 I can’t believe this beauty is only 4 ingredients too!! Such a delicious snack or dessert! Pinning! Cheers!!

  14. Dawn - Girl Heart Food says:

    Hahaha – you were sneaky with the whole ice cream thing 😉 Though, I do bet that this tastes AMAZING! Looks so creamy dreamy, Shashi! What a fantastic way to use one of my favourite things – avocado! Imagine a lil’ chocolate shavings on top?? Hope you have a fabulous weekend, my friend! XOXO

  25. You are so funny. And evil. Avocado pudding is ice cream. YAY!!! Ha ha. You could only get away with that one for so long. This does look very creamy and delicious. Avocado is wonderful about making things creamy – great in smoothies too. Great recipe and to think your mama was making this forever ago. Good for her. (and all of us!) XO

  33. Oh man… This sounds delicious!!

  34. alexvegginout says:

    Avocados do make a great pudding base seeing as they’re so rich and creamy! I made a chocolate avocado pudding once, and it was some of the most decadent pudding I’ve ever had! Love this simple lemon version. 🙂

    • Thank You so much Alex! I lurrrve avocado and chocolate! I made some muffins – posting tomorrow – but I need to check out your avocado-choc pudding – I am gonna have to stalk out your blog now…

  36. Joanne says:

    I’ve never thought to prepare avocados this way! So simple and tasty.

  37. What a great idea for a pudding. I’ve had avocado cake and shake but not a pudding! 🙂

  38. Shashi, this truly IS a bowl of bliss! So healthy, too. I love everything avos and I always have almond milk on hand. Love that there is a squeeze of lemon. Could probably do part lime juice as I have a bunch of them in a big ol’ bowl right now. Cannot wait to make this! Thanks for sharing, girl! And, have a wonderful summer weekend! xo

    • Thank you bunches Stacy – lime sounds awesome! You could even throw a little zest in the pudding and on top for garnish – GREAT idea! Hope you have a wonderful summer weekend too!
      xo

  39. Sharmila says:

    I love this… I always enjoyed this in Sri Lanka as a drinl with regular milk!

  40. This looks amazing, I’ve always wanted to make avocado pussing! It seems so smooth and silky 🙂

  41. I love avocado mousse and have yet to try avocado pudding…I didn’t know it existed. Thanks for a yummy recipe that I can feel good about eating!!!

  42. ooooh yum! I’m thinking some cocoa powder or chocolate protein powder may be a great addition to this! Have a wonderful weekend lady 🙂

  43. makingthymeforhealth says:

    This sounds so creamy and comforting! I have yet to use avocadoes in dessert but I need to soon.

  44. Oh how I love avocados!!! They’re are so amazing, and you can use them in so many different things! This avocado pudding sounds awesome and I can’t wait to try it out!

  45. Looks so good.. i’ve never tried avocado pudding without chocolate. do you taste the avocado at all?

  46. cquek says:

    One bowl is not enough for me.

  47. I could go for a nice sized bowl of this!
    Have a great weekend, enjoy it! 🙂

  48. i will take a bowl or five of these please 🙂

  49. Julia says:

    I’ve been meaning to make pudding with avocados for a while now and your short list of ingredients and instructions are making it look so easy! I already have all the ingredients, so this MUST happen this weekend!

  50. Avocado can do no wrong. I love it in puddings and smoothies, but I have yet to try it with a “squeeze” of lemon 😉 Love the idea!

  51. oh this looks delicious- i agree this truly is good comfort food for the soul. so healthy, and so satisfying- im going to have to make this!! have a great weekend!

  52. Khushboo Thadani (@KhushbooThadani) says:

    I like to think that when life hands you lemons, you whip out the tequilla & salt but making avocado pudding sounds pretty ideal too ;)! I love the addition of citrus- it’s a nice change to the chocolate avocado pudding that has become quite popular!

  53. Brittany says:

    Yummm yum yum yumooo. This looks delicious, and if it brings peace..count me in!

  54. I can’t resist anything avocados. This is so so good!!
