Ready for the ultimate throwback recipe? Dirt cups! Did you used to eat these as a kid? Or maybe you still make them for your kids! I’m so excited to share this healthy Halloween treat that everyone will love. Forget about stealing your kids Halloween candy, you can enjoy your own treat this year!
These were one of my favorite desserts growing up, but now that I’m an adult and realize what was in them, I cringe a little. But not anymore! I’ve upgraded traditional dirt cups to a healthy version that you and your kids will love! The perfect Halloween treat that won’t leave them bouncing off the wall. 😉 You’re welcome!
What’s in a Dirt Cup?
Traditionally, dirt cups have a base of instant chocolate pudding, cool whip and milk. In the classic recipe, you layer the pudding mixture with crushed Oreos and then top with gummy worms and other treats. Talk about a dairy and sugar bomb! Makes my stomach ache just thinking about it.
My upgraded version has a base of avocado chocolate pudding! It’s super creamy and better yet: good for you. You mix avocado, almond milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup and vanilla in a food processor (affiliate link) or blender and you’ve got a healthy base for your dirt cups. I know making pudding from avocado seems a little different, but I personally love using avocado for sweet desserts, like this avocado ice cream and this avocado tart. And trust me……
