Being a fruit, avocado pudding is naturally plant-based. However, MasterClass points out that non-vegan versions are sometimes made using whole milk. Fortunately, there are more milk alternatives than necessary these days — so your substitution choices are truly endless. From banana milk to sesame seed milk, you can experiment with all kinds of options to achieve different results and textures.
For example, if you’re looking for a rich texture, MasterClass recommends using full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream. But, if you’re looking to go the opposite direction — opting for an avocado pudding with a lighter and silkier consistency — almond milk is the way to go. Then, once you’ve got your avocados and milk of choice together, you’ve completed two-thirds of the three-ingredient recipe (per The Guccha).
With your avocados and almond milk, all you have left to do is decide on a sweetener. Agave, date syrup, and maple syrup are good options if you want to keep it vegan. You can also add cocoa powder — like in this vegan avocado mousse recipe – or a dash of vanilla flavoring if you want to amp it up a bit.
