This chocolate pumpkin avocado pudding is rich, velvety, and packed with essential vitamins and healthy fat!

 

This wouldn’t be a “healthy dessert for Halloween” list without at least one pumpkin recipe!

 

We love this chocolate pumpkin avocado pudding recipe for its rich flavor and amazing health benefits. Pumpkin is high in beta-carotene that your body turns into vitamin A, which can strengthen immunity.

 

Also, avocado packs a ton of healthy fats into this recipe while giving the pudding its creamy texture. It also pairs great with chocolate!

 

This recipe can be whipped up in a flash. Sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top for some added crunch and flavor!
