Have I got a treat for you today!
When attempting to lose weight, or to just be “healthy,” it is incredibly important to avoid ultra-processed foods because not only do they work against your health and wellness goals due to their ingredients but they’re also designed to make you want to eat more of them.
This might lead you to believe you have to eat boring and dull food from now on. (By the way, that mindset is sure to derail even your most arduous attempts at success.)
It does not have to be so.
Here’s a surprising recipe for all of my chocolate pudding lovers out there.
It doesn’t even require any cooking – just a high-speed blender or food processor.
When you make it, be sure your avocados are ripe but not OVERripe because it will affect the consistency.
Healthy and Delicious Chocolate Avocado Pudding
- 2 ripe avocados (not over-ripe!)
- 1 cup (160 g) pitted dates
- ¼ cup (20 g) raw cocoa powder
- ½ cup (120 ml) water
- ½ Tbsp organic honey
- 1-2 pinches of sea salt
Remove the peel and pit from the avocado and cut into quarters. Don’t know how?
Slice avocado lengthwise through the middle but around the pit. On thee side of the avocado containing the pit, carefully push the pit out using both thumbs. Then, scoop out remaining flesh with a spoon. Finally, scoop out the flesh of the other half of the avocado.
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined. Scrape out of the processor into a covered container (or individual covered serving dishes). Let it chill for a few hours before eating.
Try not to eat it all at once. Enjoy!
Seriously: SO GOOD.
Eating well and looking great does not have to be a chore.
