This delicious avocado chocolate pudding dessert is not only gluten-free, it is guilt-free as well! It is a healthy alternative to traditional chocolaty, high-sugar desserts so there is no need to skip over the sweet indulgence that should follow every meal.

This classically inspired pudding recipe was created by the triple threat Ellie Krieger. She is a New York Times best-selling author, registered dietitian and host of Food Network’s Healthy Appetite.

It's the avocado in the recipe that gives it the extra smooth texture. Krieger combines unsweetened cocoa powder, avocados, skim milk, coffee, honey and vanilla -- it is that simple. The pudding dessert is best served after being chilled for about an hour. After it is chilled, try adding a few garnishes such as coconut, orange zest and sea salt. These little extras will bring out the flavors and enhance the decadent experience.
