I love Nutella (who doesn’t), so I’ve been developing all kinds of delicious ways to satisfy my cravings. A spoonful of Nutella is one of my favorite snacks, I mean… desserts. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get away with eating very much sugar – even organic sugar. So, I’ve been working on my favorite flavors without refined sugar. I’m right in the middle of a mission to use up 21 avocados, and this Nutella Pudding is one of the results.

Place all of the ingredients for the pudding in the food processor, fitted with the chopping blade and process until smooth. This will take about 2-3 minutes. Scrape down the sides to make sure the finished product is completely smooth.

This pudding is good all by itself but, I like it even better with whipped cream and it’s the best with chopped hazelnuts and chocolate. In this case, more is definitely better!

  1. Place all of the ingredients for the pudding into the food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Process until smooth 2-3 minutes, scraping down the sides once or twice.

You can use honey instead of maple syrup. Start with 1/2 cup and sweeten to taste from there. If the pudding is a little thick, add a few tablespoons of coconut milk

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe! I always love coming across ‘gourmet’ items at a better price, we don’t have a Trader Joe’s here but maybe someday! 🙂

  1. Made this last night and it was excellent, even without hazelnut oil! What a great discovery and I will certainly repeat this in our household. I will use Amaretto to substitute for the hazelnut oil next time…certainly a very tasty, easy to prepare, healthy and gluten free dessert! Thanks for posting this recipe online!

    1. Amaretto sounds like a delicious substitution! You can use other roasted nut oils as well if you can’t have hazelnuts, I find most of mine at TJ Max of all places – they have lots of interesting stuff in their small food section! 🙂

  2. just have to tell you that we made this tonight and it was delectable! – so rich and the coconut cream added the perfect balance. we simply subbed coconut oil for the hazelnut oil and it was great.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it! If you get a chance to make it with the toasted hazelnut oil, let me know what you think because I think you’ll like the nutella flavor! 🙂

  3. I can’t find the hazelnut oil anywhere! But I did find artificial flavoring…..I hate the thought of using that but thought I could use coconut oil and the hazelnut flavoring till I find the hazelnut oil, don’t you think???

    1. You can also use Frangelico which is a hazelnut flavored liquor to give you a deep hazelnut flavor. I tried a hazelnut extract, but it wasn’t very flavorful. A artificial flavoring might give you better results than the extract, but I would definitely try to order hazelnut oil online.

  4. As for the coconut milk, what size can? As in, how many ounces? And, thanks for the tip about using avocados. This is a great way to sneak a veggie into a kid’s diet.

    1. My coconut milk is a 13.66 fluid ounce can which is pretty standard, as far as I know. Let me know how you like it – I just made my third batch in a week!

  5. WOW… I too love nutella and do not eat it because of the sugar content…. Love the next avocado recipe…. looking forward to the rest….!

  6. This looks marvelous! I’ve been wanting to try one of these avocado-chocolate puddings and yours with the hazelnut is going to be my first.
