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 [3]. She included a link to a recipe in one of her e-books [4], “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

This is the first of a few “Food Allergies on a Budget [7]” recipe ideas that I’ll be sharing as part of the series [7]! The recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free and tree nut-free if you omit the pistachios.
