    I made this, this morning and after playing hard outside my girls came in wanting a snack. I gave them this and they devoured all of it!!! Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe. We are dairy free and not having chocolate pudding has been a pretty big deal for my girls…but it is an issue no longer!!!

    how many servings? also, it would be nice it you estimated calories. this one is 600 calories per recipe! (half of which is from the avacado) there’s an online recipe analyzer at caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php

    and instead of writing “1T + 1tsp honey”, how about writing 4tsp honey?

      This recipe serves 3-4. We choose not to count calories here and this is why: Dancing Carrots believes in eating a whole, plant-based diet. Doing this in combination with eating moderate portions when we are hungry and stopping when we are full leads us to our natural healthy body weight without having to count calories (see our Dancing Carrots 10 pillars of Nutrition under where it says “Start” on the menu bar). If you think about it, avocados have a lot of calories but are PACKED with nutrition. Fat free “whipped topping” has almost no calories but contains all sorts of weird filler ingredients to take place of nutritious ones. As long as we get a big mix of whole foods in our diets and aren’t just eating avocados and nuts all day, these nutrient and calorie-filled foods can help keep you healthy and satisfied! Thank you for the comment.

        agreed! but some people need to know calories in order to pace ourselves according to our OWN schedules, right?

        spread calories throughout the day to level out blood sugar spikes — which cause hunger when insulin overshoots blood sugar — and do that by calorie counts to determine portion size. i do not want someone else to decide portion size for me.

        i also whole-heartedly agree that processed foods are the primary reason that many people are overweight. but while i agree that fiber+liquid+fat is a good recipe for feeling full, it is not the ONLY contributing factor. consider disease (eg, diabetes), peer pressure (especially in teens), alcohol-induced eating, partying, stress and even boredom.

    I like the idea of this recipe, as I love chocolate pudding, but I am allergic to bananas. Any suggestions on how to substitute those in this recipe?

    • admin says:

      Janet,
      We are so sorry but at the moment we can’t think of a good alternative. Bananas have a very unique texture and flavor that is hard to duplicate. As of right now, we can’t solve this but we will keep thinking about it and if we can find an alternative we will let you know! Thank you for your interest in eating healthy and using our recipes!
