If all of that was not a good enough excuse to enjoy this Avocado Pudding then note that avocado offers many health benefits. It provides an excellent source of potassium and an average of 4 grams of protein per avocado. Additionally, avocado provides monounsaturated fat which is commonly referred to as “good fat.” This fat may reduce levels of “bad” cholesterol in your blood. Additionally, it can lower your risk of stroke and heart disease.
