What is Vietnamese Avocado Pudding?
Vietnamese Avocado Pudding (Chè Bơ) is a newly popular Vietnamese street food option. This is very creamy and delicious using creamy ripe avocadoes and coconut milk.
The recipe is refreshing, cooling and perfect for the summer heat!
Ingredients & substitutions
The recipe is made in collaboration with Nature’s Charm – a woman-owned business that makes vegan Asian products. I was really impressed by the realistic taste and similar texture of their vegan canned products to the dairy equivalents. They were the perfect match for the Vietnamese Avocado Pudding I had in mind.
The ingredients in Avocado blend include:
- Avocado: I use ripe Hass avocados for the best taste and texture.
- Coconut condensed milk: the recipe uses coconut condensed milk to replace traditional dairy condensed milk. The sweetened coconut condensed milk by Nature’s Charm has a sticky, thick texture that resembles the traditional dairy version. Alternatively, you can use the same amount of agave or maple syrup, but note that the texture will not be as thick.
- Sugar: you can use granulated or raw sugar, or more liquid sweeteners of choice.
- Lime juice: helps the avocado stay fresh longer.
- Evaporated coconut milk: you can use Nature’s Charm evaporated coconut milk for a creamy texture and coconut taste. Alternatively, you can use natural full-fat coconut milk.
To help create the pudding texture of the avocado blend, we combine agar agar powder to 600 ml of boiling water and mixing them together. Afterwards, mix two liquid together: agar agar mix and avocado blend and let it cool before transferring to 4 bowls/cups. The bowls/cups should set in the fridge for 4-5 hours until thickened to the avocado texture.
To top off the avocado pudding, we are making a coconut sauce that is made out of:
- Evaporated coconut milk: to add creamy coconut-based flavors
- Sweetened coconut condensed milk: to add sweetness to the sauce
- Corn starch: to thicken the sauce
You can store this dessert in a closed container for 2 days in the fridge.
