Help me make a pudding recipe dairy free

The recipe is from Tartine's cookbook for chocolate pudding. I am thinking of using dairy free milk for the cow's milk. Any tips or admonitions?

This is my go-to chocolate pudding recipe. The author says you can use coconut and cashew milks; I've used almond. It's delicious and super easy.

I've made dairy free chocolate mousse many times with avocado instead of heavy cream. Both taste and texturenare very good.
As most non-dairy milks are low fat, I would add a small amount of avocado (perhaps after any cooking) to improve taste and mouthfeel.

Reading the Tartine recipe later, I see it already has whipping or heavy cream.
You could use avocado to replace all that cream, just don't cook it with the milk. Rather, cook the chocolate and non-dairy milk, let cool, later blend in avocado, chill again, serve.
