Low-Carb Chocolate Pudding

This Low-Carb Chocolate Pudding is made with… avocados! One of the stables of a low carb diet, avocados bring the consistency and the richness to the chocolate pudding. And don’t worry if they’re overly ripe – the avocado doesn’t need to look good because it’s going to get mixed with the chocolate. So if you have some avocados that are too ripe for guacamole, it’s time to make this delicious chocolate pudding!
