My avocados each weighed 4 3/4 ounces before peeling and pitting and about 3 1/3 ounces each afterward. Kathy used part Xylitol and part stevia to sweeten hers. I increased the amount of sweetener because it wasn't nearly enough but that was likely due to the combination of chocolate and Splenda causing it to taste bitter instead of sweet. I didn't care for the taste of this very much. The consistency was very nice and pudding-like but I couldn't get past the flavor of the avocado in it. I normally like avocados but apparently only in savory dishes. I had high hopes that this recipe would be as good as the reviews I'd read online of similar pudding recipes but I honestly didn't like this.
