Recipe 75: Healthy Chocolate Pudding

I just realized that I have never shared my favorite chocolate pudding recipe with you guys! I can't believe I haven't. It is not my recipe, I wish. The recipe is very popular in the healthy eating world, because it is raw, vegan, paleo, sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, and so forth (yes, I know that some of those overlap). It's also super quick to make, and healthy enough to eat for breakfast. I mean, chocolate pudding for breakfast! Who wouldn't want that? Let's get to it!
Before I start, some things are definitely worth mentioning. First off, you will not taste the avocado. I know it sounds gross to put avocado into a chocolate pudding, but it actually works! It provides the amazing texture that replaces any kind of custard or oil that you would normally find in a pudding. You also will not really taste the banana. The banana gives the pudding most of its sweetness, and it replaces the egg by binding everything together, although the avocado also does this. What you will mostly taste is the chocolate and the vanilla. If you don't trust me, try making this yourself and you'll see that I was right all along!
Ingredients
  • Avocado - 1 piece
  • Banana - 1 piece
  • Cacao powder, raw, or regular cocoa powder - 1/4 cup
  • Stevia - 2 tsp
  • Vanilla extract, raw or regular - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 1 pinch
  • Cacao nibs - 1 tbsp
  • Walnut - 4 halves
I cannot stress this enough, but make sure your avocado and banana are ripe. They should not be smushy, but definitely soft enough to blend in completely. Finding green specks or hard pieces of either of those in your pudding is going to be very gross, and we don't want that, now do we?

You could also use other toppings, such as fresh berries, more banana, almonds, dried goji berries, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, and even some peanut butter is amazing with this.
Instructions
  1. Put the avocado, banana, cacao powder, stevia, vanilla, and salt into a food processor, and blend untill completely smooth. This is one of those recipes where chunky is not an option, because you do not want chunks of avocado in your chocolate pudding. Trust me.
  2. Place the pudding into a bowl, and top with the walnuts and cacao nibs.
I promise it'll be worth it. I like this so much more than 'regular' avocado pudding nowadays, just because the taste is so much more pure and intense. It is nothing like the sticky, processed, sugary globs of chocolate you will buy in store. This is revolutionary. I love it.

Enjoy, I'm sure that you will!

Liefs,

Debs.
