Avocado Chocolate Pudding
Whipped Cream
  1. Scoop flesh from avocados and put in a blender with seeds from vanilla bean.
  2. Add cacao powder, maple syrup, agave, orange juice and kosher salt and start to puree.
  3. While blender is still running, gradually pour in 3/4 cup hot water (but not boiling), until smooth and creamy (you can also add more orange juice if the 3/4 cup water isn’t enough).
  4. Chill pudding for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days (cover once set).
  5. Serve with whipped cream (make by whipping heavy whipping cream with vanilla) and sprinkle with cacao nibs and hazelnuts. If you want to go the vegan route, I recommend refrigerating a can of full fat coconut milk and whipping it in a chilled bowl for 30 seconds or so and adding vanilla for an easy dairy free substitute!
