Avocado Chocolate Pudding Parfait with Easy Berry Sauce for Two (Paleo, Keto, and Vegan Friendly)

  • Total Time: 18 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


Avocado Chocolate Pudding Parfait with Easy Berry Sauce for Two is deeply chocolatey, healthy, easy to make, and is perfect for date night dessert!



Avocado Chocolate Pudding:

  • 1 medium-large ripe Hass avocado
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup (see Note)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon instant espresso powder (dissolved in 1/2 teaspoon warm water)
  • 1 pinch salt

Berry Sauce:

  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 1g packet stevia/erythritol blend
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt


  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream (whipped to medium peaks (see Note))
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate curls


  1. For the pudding, add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. (You can add a splash of cold water to thin it out as desired, but I prefer it thick.)
  2. For the berry sauce, microwave the berries (don’t add water) for 6 minutes at 50% power (they should form a liquidy sauce; I don’t thicken it because I like it liquidy, but you can thicken the sauce with a little fruit pectin or cornstarch if you want). Stir in the stevia, lemon juice, vanilla, and salt, and cool completely.
  3. Layer the pudding, berry sauce, and whipped cream in 1 large parfait glass. Sprinkle the chopped dark chocolate or chocolate curls on top.
  4. Serve.


Keto Version: Instead of 4 tablespoons maple syrup in the Chocolate Avocado Pudding, use stevia and/or erythritol to taste. I use 2 (1g) packets of stevia/erythritol blend.

Paleo and Vegan Version: Instead of topping with whipped cream, top with coconut whipped cream. For vegan, use a vegan brand of chocolate (such as Enjoy Life) and for paleo, use stevia-sweetened chocolate (such as Lily's) for topping.
