It can be hard to tell when avocados are ripe sometimes. One day you check them and they are hard as a rock, yet the next day you check them and they are so soft you basically bruise it. What are you to do with an avocado that isn’t quite photo ready? Well, with the price of avocados these days it certainly doesn’t need to see the trash can. To be less wasteful (with money and food) it is important to have a backup plan. And when your back up plan involves chocolate then we think that is one of the best back up plans you can have! So next time you have brown and bruised avocados don’t throw them out. Whip together this easy and delicious chocolate pudding instead.
