I love avocado. It's a magical, unique fruit that's chockablock full of nutrients, vitamins and fiber. It's actually been called "the most nutritious of all fruits"! And it's toted by countless health authorities as one of the key foods for superior nutrition, with good reason.
Here's some facts about the creamy green guy.
Research for yourself too!
Besides it's endless list of health benefits - it just tastes darn DELICIOUS. Like no other food. It's creamy, rich, and can be used in a butt load of creative or simple ways for your food AND cosmetically. Seriously, whenever I eat an avocado (almost every day) I put like half of it on my face, neck and arms to make my skin soft and glowing. Mmm...
I came home from a long day of school quite hungry and ate 2 giant heads of broccoli, which totally filled me up. But yet I made this pudding for dessert and ate it all because it was actually irresistible. I dare you not to eat it all. So without further ado, here's an uber simple recipe for a super food chocolate pudding.
I'm not exaggerating when I say this BETTER than regular pudding, and it's SO good for you.
You can eat a giant bowl of rich chocolate pudding and feel PROUD of yourself, not guilty.
It's a wonderful world, people.
(Sorry, the pics aren't so great today. How can you expect me to be patient and take tons of pretty pictures when I have the best chocolate pudding in the universe sitting right in front of me? You can't.)
The World's Greatest Chocolate Pudding: serves ONE
1 very ripe avocado
1-2 Tb honey
2-3 Tb cacao
Pinch of salt
Feel free to use agave or maple syrup instead of raw honey, I prefer it because it's a super nutrient-dense food though =)
Also go ahead and add mesquite, cinnamon, and/or coconut oil. They all add new dimensions to the flavor. I just wanted to keep the recipe simple.
Blend all ingredients until smooth, adding water as needed to make it creamy. EAT.
