Chocolate Avocado Pudding Pops

I am usually not a huge fan of tricking my kids into eating their vegetables by hiding them in desserts. I like to encourage them to eat healthfully without resorting to such measures. But I made an exception this time because only one of them will willingly eat avocado and I feel like the other two are missing out on all the good healthy fats. These rich low carb Chocolate Avocado Pudding Pops appeal to both kids and adults alike!

These were wonderful. Very rich, very yummy. I think they might need a bit more vanilla in them though, and plan to put in 1 tsp instead of just 1/2 the next time I make them. I think I get a better flavor profile with less bitterness with a combo of Splenda and erythritol/Serve, and have a big jar with a 50/50 blend already mixed up. Having said that, I think you could use any sugar substitute you want. And the nice thing about this raw mixture is that it has no eggs and you can taste away to get… Read more »

Is the nutrition info for one pop or for the whole recipe?

Do you have any idea how much (cup wise) are 2 avocados?  I think I would love these.  I already love avocado chocolate pudding and chocolate avocado cookies.  See a theme here in chocolate? haha

Could Erythritol be used instead of swerve?

Cecelia

Do you need to use both the swerve sweetner and the stevia extract?
Also the stevia extract, is that liquid?
Thanks

I agree with you on not tricking kids into eating vegetables.  They do need to know what’s good for them.  They also need to know how they taste.  I started with just a spoonful of something new, 2 bites each time a new dish was served.  They all love their veggies and fruits.  I’m the one not crazy about avocados, I try them, but not won over yet.  These look wonderful and I will make them.  Thank you for sharing.
