I have found a chocolate pudding recipe that calls for avocado - something I had heard of and wanted to try for a while now. The recipe is as follows:
Avocado Chocolate Pudding
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 2-3 servings
Serving Size: 1/2 cup
2 ripe medium avocados, peeled and chopped
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey or raw agave nectar (or other sweetener of choice)
1/2 cup milk (regular or almond milk, coconut, etc.)
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Blend all ingredients, until smooth, in a blender, food processor or using a hand held mixer. Serve immediately, or chill first.
My question is this. I don't have honey at home nor do I have or know what agave nectar is. Can I use sugar, truvia, or splenda as a replacement? If so, is it an equal substitution? My avocados are about to go bad and wanted to try this but don't need to go to the store otherwise any time soon.
