“Chocolate” Cacao pudding – a clean dessert

This is an amazing dessert for kids just don’t tell them that it has avocado and they will have no idea! Also -FYI- cacao powder is a stimulant like chocolate or caffeine so careful with amounts and dosage.

Ingredients:

2 Avocados preferably very ripe. My trick with avocados if they are not ripe yet is to place them in a paper bag –the kind you had as a kid for lunch bags- and put them on a window sill that gets a lot of sunlight. Leave overnight and by morning they will be ripe and ready to eat!!

 1 Tbsp Cacao powder (I buy mine on Amazon it’s cheaper than Whole Foods). Please consider this: cacao is a very strong unprocessed food and has a very distinct flavor- you may prefer t o add a bit more to this recipe or a bit less depending on your taste. I prefer less but add more stevia for sweetness.

2 dropper squirts Liquid stevia or if you prefer Agave (Be careful with Agave- it is hard to find PURE 100% Agave nectar- there are so many bogus companies marketing their products as pure when in actuality it’s no better than sugar)

Cinnamon – just a dash wil do ya!

1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla flavor Almond Milk also try unsweetened cashew milk –both are delicious options. Be careful of the brand. I prefer “Silk” brand because the “Almond Breeze” brand has calcium carbonate in it.

½ cup Frozen berries (I prefer Blueberries but some people like banana or strawberries I only use a minimal amount anyway for the texture)

Blend all ingredients together and freeze for 10 minutes.

Clean chocolate pudding that no one will be any the wiser!!

Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid. They also act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.
