Simple Chocolate Avocado "Nice Cream" Pudding Recipe

This chocolate avocado “nice cream” recipe started out as an idea for a chocolate breakfast smoothie bowl, but it turned out so smooth and decadent that I had to serve it in an ice cream dish. It’s somewhere between a pudding and an ice cream, but the only thing you need to call it is delicious.

If you haven’t ever heard of “nice cream,” it’s just a fun way of blending peeled frozen bananas into the texture of ice cream. It’s pretty amazing how a humble frozen banana can turn into such a delicious treat!

This recipe is:

Bananas are a wonderful inexpensive health food. Some health bloggers give bananas a bad rap for being a little high in sugar, but in general they’re actually really good for you. Depending on how ripe they are, bananas are medium on the glycemic index and contain a great amount of fiber, hydration, and high doses of vitamins and minerals. Processed sugar is never good for you in high quantities, but remember that whole fruit contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, water and fiber. Don’t let people tell you that fruit isn’t good for you! Over-ripe bananas do tend to have more sugar, so if you’re concerned about the sugar in take choose a less ripe banana. Also, when combined with a little protein and/or healthy fat (like the avocado in this recipe), the natural sugar in a banana generally isn’t a problem.

Banana Nice Cream is also great because you can blend just about any other healthy fruit or veggie into it to change the flavor and amp up the nutrition. I love adding avocado for extra fiber, nutrients, and a good dose of healthy fat. The fiber and healthy fat keep you satiated and help to stabilize your blood sugar.

The raw chocolate adds even more flavor and a big dose of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Just look for high-quality raw chocolate (also called cacao), not processed cocoa powder. The only ingredient on the label should be raw chocolate powder (no sugar added!).

Avocado Chocolate Nice Cream Elizabeth Rider

Because the banana is the only sweetener in this recipe, this nice cream/pudding is pretty “earthy” tasting—but in a good way! If you’re new to this type of recipe and need a little more sweetness add a little stevia or raw honey to taste. Just stay mindful of how much sugar you’re adding; too much added sugar can have negative side effects on your overall health & wellness.

This recipe can easily be doubled or multiplied to make more, and will store nicely in the refrigerator for about a day (blended avocado doesn’t like to keep for more than a day). It’s really easy to make, so I usually just whip up a batch right before I want to eat it.

Chocolate Avocado “Nice Cream” Recipe

Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 5 minutes
Serves 2

  • 1 small frozen banana (peel it before you freeze it)
  • 1/2 small avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1 tablespoon raw chocolate powder (aka cacao)
  • about 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or other unsweetened milk alternative), possibly more for blending
  • 1/4 teaspoon high-quality vanilla extract
  • sliced strawberries or other berries for topping
  • a sprinkle of chia or hemp seeds would also make a great optional topping

Directions: Blend all ingredients except the fruit for the topping in a blender or food processor. Start with a 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk and add more a few teaspoons at a time to blend, if needed. Blend into a thick pudding/ice cream texture. Serve with fruit.
