    This looks delicious! (And I love that it uses avocados!) One question… Does this freeze ok? (I would like to make extra and save for later.) Thanks!

      HI Hope! You know what I really don’t know?! I have used avocados for ice cream before and it does work, so I’m leaning towards a yes (maybe worth trying with a small amount!) xo!

      • Hope says:

        So I thought I would make a small amount of this tonight to test it out, but only have 1/3 cup avocado (67 grams) on hand. If I only use this much, and keep all other ingredient amounts the same, what can I expect as far as how it might change the taste? Would you recommend altering the amounts of the other ingredients to accommodate for this instead?

    I made this today with macadamia milk instead of coconut milk. It didn’t set up or thicken like pudding. I also tripled everything to make three times the servings. Any idea why it didn’t set up?

    • Paola says:

      The macadamia milk did the trick. Unfortunately you need full-fat coconut milk to get it thick here Beau, as it’s MUCH thicker and will actually solidify xo!

    I so want to make this recipe, but I am so leery because of the macros. I am on keto and this is way over my limit. Yes, I have read the comments, so I checked my app and these are my macro – Calories 165.5
    Total Carbs 25.5g – Net Carbs 4.6g – diabetes carbs 10.6g – Fiber 9.3g – -Sugar 0.7g –
    Sugar Alcohols 12g – Protein 4.0g – Fat – 12.8g – Glycemic Load 1.4. so disappointed. Maybe I will still make and just eat a teaspoon full of it. I have tried a few of your recipes and they are very good.
    I hope to get a reply……

    • Paola says:

      Hi Kim! I don’t think I understand what the problem is here, as when I run YOUR numbers I get 4g net carbs?
      Total 25.5
      – Fiber 9.3
      – Sugar Alcohols 12g
      = 3.7g net carbs!

      … which is even lower than the 5g net that I have written down 😉 Also I don’t know what diabetes carbs are? xo!

    This was great! My whole family loved it. I didn’t add instant coffee, but I did add the cinnamon and would probably omit it next time, but I will definitely make this again. Quick and easy and delicious.

    • Paola says:

      Awesome you loved it Heather! It actually works very well with frozen strawberries too for sort of ‘soft serve’ (just don’t use too much salt!) 😉 xo!

    Hey Paola, I bet that’s it. The app just lets you tell it the url of the recipe and then it uploads it with all the deets. Most likely it didn’t account for the sugar alcohols. Can’t wait to try it!

    • Paola says:

      Hope you enjoy it Michael! P.s. check out the French silk pie too, same base recipe for the filling but the crust is SO amazing!!

    Hi, just wanted to confirm the macros…when I import the recipe into Carb Manager app, it says 1 serving is 37g net carbs (48g total, 11g fiber). The fat, protein, and calories (33g/6g/350kcal) seem close enough, but I stay under 20 net carb per day, so…….. 🙂
    Love the site, btw!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Michael! Are you inputing the sweetener? Remember that erythritol and xylitol are sugar alcohols and not regular carbs (which go undigested through most peeps’ tracks). So it’s common practice to leave them out of the carb count, unless you have a fancy section for sugar alcohols (as many store-bought products do). xo and so happy you’re enjoying the site!

    I tried the recipe. It was very good. However, I ‘m not sure that it is Keto. After tallying up my macros for the day, I added the individual carbs for Swerve, and 1 teaspoon is 5 grams of carbs. One tablespoon equals 3 teaspoons, so 2 tablespoons of just the Swerve portion alone is 30 grams of carbs. As per the single serving recipe, the carbs amount to 60.2 grams. (Since it was rich, I ate only half.) I might try to add stevia if I make it again. My goal is to only eat 20 grams of carbs a day, so I can’t make the recipe as is.

    • Paola says:

      Hi Kim! It’s absolutely keto! Regarding Swerve, remember that it’s not a carb but a sugar alcohol. And as it goes undigested through most peeps’ tracks, it’s left out of the actual carb count. I’m also not sure how you ended up with 60g, as non of the other ingredients are that high in carbs either (I also stay under 20g net/day). I suggest you read up more on sugar alcohols xo!

    • Melanie Albert says:

      I thought I would reply, as I am a type 1 diabetic and wear a continuous glucose monitor. If I eat any carbs I didn’t account for, I will definitely know within minutes as my graph with start climbing. Erythritol does not affect blood glucose levels and is not included in your carb count. The only carbs are from the avocado, which are quite minimal (and ones I don’t even bolus for). I didn’t bolus for this and my blood sugar is fine. If I ate a handful of blueberries, on the other hand, I’d be spiking.

    Sooooo good…made this for dessert last night. Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful recipes.

    I rarely leave reviews, but had to for this one as my extremely picky 6 year old ate it all up and even asked for more!!

    I have tried so many recipes for avocado chocolate puddings and nothing worked until this one. I urge everyone to make it exactly as it is! I think the game changers are mostly the salt and cinnamon. The cinnamon does give it a more mexican chocolate flavor, but gets rid of any avocado trace. THANK YOU! My kid loves you already

    Ok so it sat up and when cold I discovered that 3 tbsp of sweetener was over the top for me…lol recipe is still a keeper though and the fat is ”real” yum!

    • Paola says:

      Oh lol! I think sweeteners can be weird (and vary SO much according to different taste buds, particularly after doing keto). But so happy you loved it Kay Marie! big kiss!

  11. Kay Marie says:

    Brava! Brava! Brava! Just opened the email and it was made in 10 mins! Excellent i did use 3 tbsp swerve and 1/3 avocado(all I had left its too cold to go out) and it came out perfectly! Thank you
