Avocado Dirt Pudding

The entire family loved this recipe – they thought is was so gross and fun to eat at the same time! It’s the perfect 🧡 Halloween dessert!

The kids also loved helping me make it, which is always a bonus!

Rather than make these dirt cups with sugar-filled chocolate pudding, I used 🥑 avocado pudding to make it healthier, as well as organic cookies and dye-free gummy worms.

This is a fun and delicious dessert you can feel good about serving to your family!

How Far in Advance Can I Make Them?

These dirt cups will keep well covered in the fridge for 4 to 5 days, so they are a great make ahead treat. It’s best not to freeze the dessert as the texture can change.
