Ingredients

Hazelnut + Chocolate "Nutella" Pudding

  • 2/3 cup raw hazelnuts
  • 2 just-ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1 ripe avocado, halved, pitted, and peeled
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or more to taste (I use 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Optional Toppings

  • coconut whipped cream
  • crushed hazelnuts
  • shaved dark chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Spread the hazelnuts out over a small baking tray and toast in oven for 8 to 12 minutes or until fragrant and lightly golden.
  • Transfer to an airtight container and secure the lid. Vigorously shake the container until most of the skins have peeled off of the hazelnuts.
  • Transfer the peeled nuts to a food process and discard the skins. Process for 4 to 5 minutes or until smooth and glossy, stopping to scrape down sides every few minutes.
  • Add the bananas, avocado, cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla, and sea salt to the food processor. Process for 2 minutes or until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  • Divide between four serving glasses. I recommend chilling the pudding for at least 1 hour for optimal texture; however, you can enjoy it as is if you want an immediate chocolate fix.
  • Add desired toppings and serve.
