For those who aren't used to the succulent taste and texture of an avocado, then this recipe might take a few minutes to wrap your mind around!
How do you take a green/vegetable-y food like avocado and make it taste like something you would arm wrestle your husband over? Well, you make it into a chocolate pudding :)
Today's recipe is "Chocolate Creamy Avocado Pudding"
There are a few variations of this but this is my fav basic one:
-take a ripe avocado (or two or three, just adjust measurements accordingly)
-mash it up until it is smooth (can use food processor if preferred)
-on stove top take some extra virgin coconut oil (about 1/4 cup) and melt it, mix it with some pure cocoa powder until a dark brown liquid
-mix with avocado
-then simply add raw honey until sweetened to your satisfaction!
Some Variations You Could Add:
-add smooth 100% peanut butter (tablespoon or 2)
-add shredded unsweetened coconut
-add chia seeds (tablespoon or 2)
-add organic raisins
-add organic chocolate chips
-add a very ripe mashed banana
You can even take this pudding and make it into a pie filling! I've used in with nut crusts or even graham cracker crusts.
I assure you this...it won't LAST LONG :)
**Note: I want to thank my friend Christina Meyer for introducing me to adding the coconut oil to this recipe. It's taken it to a whole new level of tastiness! Thanks Christina!!
