Recipe: Vegan Too-Good-To-Be-True Avocado Pudding
This chocolate avocado pudding is so good it's sinful. Except that it's not sinful at all. It's gluten free, sugar free and dairy free. No need for double boilers or whipping cream to make this rich and creamy dessert. This tasty delight is raw, healthy and incredibly easy. Delicious AND healthy! It's made with raw cacao powder, which is rich in antioxidants, and is a good source of dietary fiber and magnesium. The good fat in the avocados carries a long list of health benefits that help your heart, your eyes, your skin, your digestion and your blood pressure. So go on... dig in!
1 ripe avocado, peeled + quartered
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup raw honey (NOTE: If you choose not to eat honey, substitute with your favorite natural vegan sweetener)
1/4 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Berries and mint for garnish
Put all the ingredients in blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer the pudding to individual ramekins, top with fresh fruit and/or a sprig of mint, serve and enjoy!
