Summer’s Chocolate Avocado Pudding

?>

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.

Finished avocado pudding

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.

Enjoy!

Summer

I am an actress, writer, comedian (I use that term very loosely) who is used to spending my nights after a show at the local pub or dive bar. My love for anything nacho and pizza related was apparent to everyone, including my waistline. As an actress your image is important, it is after all part of the job. realizing that my love affair with all the foods needed to come to an end I decided to try and cook my favorites but in a healthier more waistline friendly way. That is when I discovered my new passion, cooking. I have been creating concoctions in my kitchen for over a year now and I have lost 45lbs. I am a happier, healthier version of myself. I still go out after my shows but now with all of my new food knowledge I know how to order. I still catch a glimpse here and there of my forbidden nacho, pizza love, I smile and think fondly of the time we spent together. I can’t wait to share with you my healthy takes on the not so healthy!
