It may seem odd to have a banana and avocado in the same recipe, but the banana completely hides any taste of the avocado. The avocado is there simply for texture and nutritional value. Even my kids love this recipe! You can use any unsweetened milk in this recipe - almond, soy, rice or coconut - and for a bit of crunch use raw cocoa nibs instead of the cocoa powder.
Nice texture but this was far too rich for me, which was a pity because it is a great idea. - 24 Jan 2011
ummm, not sure what i did wrong, but it didn't thicken up and the taste was rather strange. I didn't have the agave syrup, so used brown sugar .. perhaps that was it? - 19 Mar 2013
Awesome recipe, Alex! I just happened to have a banana and an avacado that needed to get used so I whipped this up and yum! Subbed honey for the agave and added a little vanilla but that's it. I will be making this again for sure. Have been making this about twice a week and have found that adding a tablespoon or 2 of peanut butter makes it like a PB cup pudding. Yum! *******UPDATE***** I added a little extra soy milk and ran it through my ice cream machine with great results. Kind of like a Frosty but nicer. Also makes killer pudding pops. Sometimes I add granola to the pudding for breakfast, too. I love this recipe. *new update* Didn't have a banana so I used just the avocado, honey, some nestle's quick (it's what I had), and milk. Better than anything out of a plastic cup. Yum. Next time I'm adding some malt. Thanks, Alex. This is one of the best recipes ever. - 12 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
