3 Ingredient Avocado Pudding

Avocado lovers…boy do I have a treat for you today!

After seeing avocado pudding recipes all over social media and even on the Kardashian’s I knew I had to try it myself to see if it really lived up to the hype!

Well spoiler alter…IT’S DELICIOUS and so incredibly easy to make!!!!!

Avocado pudding is meat to be a healthy, filling breakfast but I have loved having it as a snack too. Actually I’m currently sitting on my couch watching NFL Red Zone eating avocado pudding as dinner cooks in my crockpot. Holy hell am I 90 years old?

Quick football tangent…How on earth did the Chargers lose that game?!?! I’m still upset! Maybe I’ll have another bowl of avocado pudding to make it better—-yep!

Fun Avocado Facts:

  • They are fruits 
  • They are the fruit that contains the highest amount of protein and fiber
  • They are also known as “alligator pears” due to their dark, bumpy skin
  • Haas avocados are the only avocados grown year round
  • Placing an avocado in a brown paper bag helps it ripen- to ripen it even faster add a banana or apple to the bag!

Avocado Health Benefits:

I really think there are an infinite amount of health benefits associated with avocados but here’s a few important ones to highlight:

High in potassium- Avocados are actually higher than bananas in potassium- a nutrient that is very beneficial in regulating blood pressure.

Increases satiety and helps with weight loss- Just half an avocado contains 3.5 grams of fiber. Getting proper amounts of fiber in your diet helps aid digestion and keep you feeling fuller longer so you’re not snacking on crap all day. Avocados also help balance blood sugar to help prevent those pesky cravings.

High in healthy fats- Not all fats were created equal. Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated oleic acid. It’s been shown oleic acid helps reduce dangerous LDL cholesterol in the blood (bad cholesterol) and can increase HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol).

Improves your skin- The monounsaturated fats in avocados help increase moisture levels in your skin, reduce redness and inflammation and even help prevent wrinkles.

Protects your eyes- It’s not just carrots that contain nutrients for healthy eyes. Avocados are rich in the antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthin which are very beneficial to eye health.
