Let's end off August's recipes with a great dessert recipe! This is the recipe for my avocado chocolate pudding. This pudding is rich so the recipe below makes 2 small servings.
I tried to get through eating all of it but really was feeling full after the first serving. This pudding is full of healthy fats, and fibre which makes it a great snack because it will keep you feeling fuller longer.
Aside from the fat and fibre 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 fibre.
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
Avocado chocolate pudding recipe
-1 medium ripe avocado
-3Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
-3Tbsp sweetener of choice (I use monk fruit for this recipe.)
-5Tbsp milk of choice (cow or nut)
-Optional toppings like nuts, chocolate chips, or shredded coconut
-Cut your avocado into chunks and put it either in a food processor or a mixing bowl
-Add the cocoa, sweetener, and milk
-Blend or mash/whip with a fork until smooth
-If you're adding toppings add them after everything is blended
Refrigerate and serve cold! Makes 2 servings.
Enjoy, team! If you give this a try I'd love to know what you think. Leave a comment on this blog post after you get the chance to make it.
