{recipe} dairy-free chocolate avocado pudding

Chocolate Avocado Pudding from Healthy Dairy Free Desserts by @JesseLWellness

You can never be too rich, or have too many vegan dessert recipes at your fingertips.

I mean you need something to wash your breakfast down with right?


Lately I’ve been particularly fond of chocolate pudding because it’s fairly simple to make and, when utilizing ingredients like avocado and cacao powder, it’s chockablock full of nutrition.

If you follow me on Instagram you would have recently seen me lovingly indulge in smoothies I made from Jesse Lane Lee’s Holistic in the City 21 Day Smoothie Guide

Love chocolate and a good smoothie recipe? This one is for you! ?”Pick Me Up Banana Cacao” from @jesselwellness ebook “Holistic in the City 21 Day Smoothie Guide” is another one of my favourites to make in the morning. Loaded with bananas, cacao, hemp hearts and medjool dates this one is both satisfying and extremely healthy #smoothies #vegansmoothie #veganfood #nutrition #breakfastsmoothie #jesselane #chocolatesmoothie

And now I’m indulging in treats from her other book, Jesse Lane Wellness Cookbook: Healthy Dairy Free Desserts!

Jesse is an incredibly helpful, cheerful holistic nutritionist and author from Toronto who has put together a cookbook that’s loaded with 30 delicious and healthy dessert recipes.

I’m currently obsessed with her Chocolate Avocado Pudding and have no shame in licking the bowl…clean.
