How to make black chocolate and vegan avocado pudding
Start by melting the chocolate in the microwave – very carefully, at short intervals and low power – or in a water bath, and let it temper a little. It is advisable to have tempered yogurt and avocado so that there is no thermal shock.
Remove the pulp from the avocado to weigh about 180-200 g, making sure it is very soft but not past. Place in a kitchen robot, chopper, blender or food processor, along with tahini and cocoa. Crush to form a paste.
Add melted chocolate, yogurt, vanilla, salt, and lime zest. Crush, stir and crush again. Add agave syrup, dates, honey, sugar or sweetener to taste, and crush again until it has a homogeneous texture, without lumps.
Distribute in portions or take to a tightly sealed container and cool in the refrigerator until serving time. It can also be frozen in molds to make poles.

Fresh fruit, vanilla ice cream, Greek yogurt or whipped cream are equally good dressings.
