Sneaky Vanilla Pudding for School Lunches/Snacks

Guest post by The Sweetest Vegan

Kids — and adults — have been back in school for a couple of weeks now and you may be running out of ideas for healthy snacks and lunches. I think this recipe is a great way to sneak avocado and banana into the diet of any willful child or picky adult.

Here is the vegan Vanilla Avocado Banana Pudding recipe…


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup vegan powdered sugar or other sweetener (optional)


In a food processor, blend together the meat of the avocado and the banana until few chunks remain.

Turn off the blades and scrape down the sides. Add in vanilla extract and continue to blend. Stop the processor, unless you have a spout for pouring liquids in, to slowly add in the almond milk.

Continue to blend until completely smooth. If you need it to be sweeter, feel free to add in the sweetener of your choice.

  1. Two things: First, this looks delicious. I cant wait to try it. Second, I think I have a foodie crush on The Sweetest Vegan… More guest posts, please!

  2. Oh yeah! We blend So Delicious vanilla and light Silk with avocado and freeze the mixture for a few hours for amazing desserts. I bet The Sweetest Vegan pudding would freeze just as well, so you could get good solid scoops. I’ll have to try it. Also, yay for fellow Atlanta girl taking soul food veg!

  3. What would you recommend if someone is allergic to bananas? I am not just a picky eater(I am and dislike bananas strongly) but if i try to sneak banana into something it decides to not stay long. I imagine the banana helps with a creamy texture.

    • You could try adding more avocado and a bit more sugar, or maybe replace some of the milk with a bit more than the same amount of canned coconut milk. Anyone else have any ideas?
