Jason Mraz's Healthy Chocolate Pudding Recipe

How about a chocolate pudding that's good for your heart? This is exactly what you'll create by following Jason Mraz's chocomole recipe, which calls for avocados, dates, chocolate powder, and a touch of vanilla.

The result is a creamy chocolate pudding that's rich in healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and flavonoids, making it an excellent choice for promoting a healthy cardiovascular system and good overall health.

Note: The quantities listed below will make a big bowl of chocolate pudding, enough for about four large servings. If you tend to eat smaller portions of decadent desserts, we recommend using just half of the quantities listed.


5 ripe avocados
1.5 cups dates, soaked in water for 1 hour, drained, roughly chopped
2 cups raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon vanilla
Raw organic honey (optional)


1. Mash avocados until creamy.

2. Add chopped dates and vanilla. Mix well to bring everything together.

3. Add half a cup of cacao powder, mix well, taste, then add another half cup of cacao powder, and repeat until the pudding is chocolate-y enough for you. Be sure to take it in steps like this, as adding too much cacao can make the pudding somewhat bitter.

4. If the dates don't sweeten the pudding to your satisfaction, add a little raw organic honey, and give the pudding another good mix.

For extra texture and flavor, sprinkle a few raw organic cashews on top. Yum!

I absolutely love Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. I have a couple of recommendations for people that like this style of music. Some other great artists that have similar music styles are Tristan Prettyman ("Love, Love, Love" and "Madly" are good), and Joe Purdy ("Wash Away" is one of my favorite songs ever!). Tristan Prettyman also did a duet with Jason Mraz called "shy that way," it's pretty good too. Anyway, this music always makes me feel better if I'm ever in a bad mood, or feeling low so I figured I'd share it for anyone that hasn't heard of them and needs some cheering up!

I'm so excited about trying this recipe- I love avacados, am a chocolate addict, and like agave syrup- sounds great to me! Thanks for posting this Dr. Kim!
