  • 1/2 cup Wonderful Pistachios No Shells Lightly Salted
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated zest from Wonderful Halos mandarin (or orange)
  • 2 large fully ripened Hass avocados, pitted, peeled, and cubed
  • 3/4 cup fully ripened banana, mashed (approximately 2 medium bananas)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon


  1. Add the avocados, banana, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, salt, and cinnamon to a food processor. Cover and puree on high speed until velvety smooth, about 3 minutes, scraping down the sides as needed. (Hint: Ideally, transfer to a container, cover, and chill for at least 1 hour to allow flavors to mingle.) Makes 2 cups pudding.
  2. Layer as desired the chocolate pudding and Wonderful Pistachios into four champagne flutes or small juice glasses. (Hint: Use a pastry bag, if possible.) Sprinkle with zest and serve.
