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.
Creamy and rich chocolate pudding
- 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?!
