Easiest Ever Chocolate Pudding

I learned about this from the wife of one of my grad school classmates. She's from Indonesia and said this is the way they do chocolate pudding there. After tasting it, I don't think I'd care if I never had it the American way again.

All you need is:

1 ripe avocado
Hershey's chocolate syrup

Put it all in the blender, and whip it up.

That's all, folks!

I can't give you exact measurements for this, because there really aren't any. You have to play a bit with amounts to get the consistency and chocolatey-ness that you like. I recommend at least 1-2 tbsp chocolate syrup and about 1/4 - 1/2 cup milk. (Make sure you add the milk a little at a time. You don't want to overdo it, or you will be drinking your pudding through a straw rather than eating it with a spoon!)

I didn't have chocolate syrup on hand, so I substituted Nutella. (Can't go wrong there, right?) The chocolate flavor of Nutella is a little less concentrated than chocolate syrup, though, so if you decide to use it, you're going to need a little more to cover up the avocado taste. Three heaping spoonfuls or so should be good. (Hopefully, you're not worrying about calories if you're making this.)

It is so good. Seriously. And it's healthy! Well, not after you add Nutella, I guess. But avocados are good for you, so there's that.
