Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding with Pistachios (or Chocomole) (or Gourmet Healthy Toddler Snack)

About a year ago, I was introduced to “chocomole” by Katie from Kitchen Stewardship [5]. She included a link to a recipe in one of her e-books [6], “Healthy Snacks To Go” and I was intrigued.

So intrigued that I made in the next week.

I could not believe it.  I still can’t believe it.

It’s a dairy-free pudding.  (I can’t remember the last time I had pudding.)

This chocomole is made from avocados. Yes, my dearly beloved avocados.

(I know!)

I have started making this again to help fatten up Tyler.  When I make it…they all ask for more. And more. And more.

And we end up licking the blender clean!

Tricks to Make Chocomole for Less

  • Buy both ripe and hard avocados when they are on sale.  Use the ripe avocados right away, and let the hard ones ripen and use the following week
  • Be on the lookout for coupons for A Taste of Thai…the coconut milk brand that tends to be cheapest
  • Use Swagbucks [7]credit to get maple syrup, agave or honey for free from Amazon
  • Use coupons for the pistachios…I’ve seen them on Kroger.com digital coupons [8], and have printed them from the internet, and seen them in the newspaper.

This is the first of a few “Food Allergies on a Budget [9]” recipe ideas that I’ll be sharing as part of the series [9]! The recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free and tree nut-free if you omit the pistachios.

Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding with Pistachios

Adapted from Jason Mraz’ version [10]


  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 6 Tbsp sweetener – agave, honey, maple syrup
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Crushed pistachios, for topping


  • Place all ingredients in the blender or food processor except the pistachios. (Although you could add those in if you’d like.)
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Serve with crushed pistachios on top.
