Avocado. The magical fruit chocked full of all the things that are good for you. What things would that be you ask? Well let me give a brief rundown: they are full of healthy fats, high in vitamin C, they got more potassium than bananas and let us not forget about the fiber. Avocados are pretty much the superhero of the fruit world. Since I have been trying to find new ways to make my favorite part of the meal (that would be dessert) a little healthier I decided to give avocado pudding a try.
I gathered the following ingredients and concocted a pretty decent pudding.
Summer’s Avocado Pudding
Just a reminder I do not measure anything I just eyeball it and go by taste so the measurements listed are based off that.
Coconut milk 1/4 cup and a splash (if you need it)
100% Raw Cacao Powder 1/4 cup
Vanilla Extract 2 tsp
Maple Syrup 1/4 to 1/2 cup (this is entirely up to you, the more syrup, the sweeter it is. Also you can add stevia or honey for a sweeter taste)
1 and 1/2 ripe avocado
Take all the ingredients and add to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
Dish up into serving bowls, cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.
When all done garnish and serve. I used fresh strawberries and shaved coconut. This is a basic recipe, and there are so many awesome things you can add. Peanut butter is a delicious choice, as is bananas. Play around. Don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments below.
