Chocolate Avocado Pudding

I have tried making this several times (including this morning) using recipes in magazines and books and.... blech.  It's never tasted good.  And, if I think that? The kids are beating me to the trash can.  So, I decided to give in and just stand at the blender until I got something passable and, instead, I came up with this.  Pudding everyday?  Don't mind it I do...

In a blender (one that is high powered enough to chop ice- you'll need it for the dates), add the following, in this order:

1 medium, very ripe advocado
3 dates
2/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk (I used So Delicious... you could also use unsweetened almond milk)
4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Blend until smooth, about 5 minutes, then add:

1 scoop chocolate whey powder (or chocolate hemp powder if you can find it)
1 tbsp simple syrup (or liquid cane sugar)
3 tbsp **lightly sweetened** chocolate hazelnut spread (Make your own (I have a recipe here) or I HIGHLY recommend Jason's brand.  If you use Nutella or something similar, then do not add the simple syrup and add only 2 tbsp)
1/2 tsp vanilla
enough (coconut) milk (I estimated 1/3 cup) to give you the texture you want

Blend until smooth, about 2-3 minutes.

Because who can choose only one fruit...

Put in a bowl and top with your favorite fruit.  Since we are all different around here, I put blackberries on mine, raspberries on Peter's, strawberries on Bobby's, and blueberries on Maya's.... Michael will just get some of the plain. :)

Pumped full of protein and good fat, this is an amazing dessert (or breakfast... just saying...)
