Creamy and rich chocolate pudding

The limes are from my own plant here in Missouri and are just for show!  :)

I can’t say enough about this super healthful and rich dessert. ¬†I found the recipe on Mind, Body, Green’s blog yesterday and went straight to the kitchen to give it a try. ¬†SOOOOOO glad that I did! ¬†It took me all of about 5 minutes to make this super delicious dessert. The secret is probably about having perfectly ripe avocados, so be patient. ¬†Make sure they are nice and soft and get rid of any brown spots. ¬†This DESSERT is loaded with antioxidants and super healthy mono-unsaturated fat. ¬†Give it a try and see what you think. ¬†I loved the very light garnish of coarse sea salt, but next time, I am going to pick a bunch of fresh raspberries from the garden to for a more healthful and colorful topping.

Servings ~4

  • 2 perfectly ripe avocados
  • 1/2 c almond milk
  • 1/2 c honey
  • 1/2 c dark unsweetened chocolate powder
  • 2 t almond or vanilla extract (follow my recipe to make your own) OR use the pulp (seeds) from one vanilla bean (this is what I did!)¬†

Throw all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. I like it best when it is nice and cold so refrigerate for an hour or two before serving. ¬†Garnish as you like: ¬†fresh fruit, shaved dark chocolate, sprinkle of sea salt, ground nuts, a drizzle of amaretto–what sounds good to you?!
