    How does 1 avocado make 8 1/2 cup servings?

    • SkinnyMs  January 29, 2015

      Steph, Thanks for noticing. This recipe has been updated to reflect the correct yield/serving size.

    I just made this (for the first time), literally, and got three 1/2 cup servings.

    • SkinnyMs  January 29, 2015

      Ronda, Yes you can make 3 half cups servings or 4 1/3 cup servings depending on the serving size desired and the size of the avocado which will vary just slightly.

    The ingredients list coconut oil; the directions states to mix coconut butter. Please, can you tell me which is it?

    • SkinnyMs  May 12, 2015

      Cherylgirl, It's coconut oil Thanks for bringing that to our attention. It is corrected.

    Where can I buy pure vanilla from? I’m assuming that’s different from vanilla extract ?
    Also the recipe says serve immediate, can I not chill the pudding in the fridge or freezer if I enjoy it cold?

    • Gale Compton  February 3, 2018

      Mimi, Yes, vanilla extract is the same. Feel free to refrigerate.
