Recipe: Avocado chocolate pudding

 
Who doesn't love dessert? Who doesn't love a dessert that's full of healthy fats and fiber that are going to keep you feeling fuller, longer?
 
Aside from the fat and fiber you get from them, avocados have a ton of health benefits!
 
Health benefits of avocados
 
In a single 100g serving you get 20 different vitamins and minerals, 160 calories, 2g of protein, 15g of healthy fats, 9g of carbs, and 7g of fiber.
 
On top of all that, some of the benefits you get from avocados are:
-More potassium than a banana
-Heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids
-They help with the absorption of your fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) 
-Antioxidants that help with eye health
-They may help prevent cancer
