There are many things I think of when I think of a delicious dessert, and avocado is not normally one of them. This underestimated dessert is a timeless classic, but for a fresh and healthier take on tradition try making it with this rather unusual ingredient and you will be pleasantly surprised!
The benefits of avocado are plenty! They have powerful anti-aging properties contained in both the flesh and the oil. Avocados are able to penetrate deeply inside out cell structures, enter the mitochondria and activate its energy production, allowing cells to function properly even while being constantly attacked by free radicals.
Avocados are also a wonderful source of healthy raw fat, which is missing in many people today. They also contain around 20 essential nutrients which include:
- Vitamin E
- Folic Acid
Avocados also boost the body’s ability to absorb fat-soluble nutrients from other fruits and vegetables, such as alpha, beta-carotene, and lutein.
So with all of that being said, let’s make a healthy, creamy and delicious chocolate pudding!
- 3 Large avocados, soft and ripe
- ¼ Cup cacao powder
- 3-6 Tbsp coconut milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup
Combine avocado, cacao powder, coconut milk, vanilla, coconut oil and honey in a blender. Blend on high for 1 minute or until smooth.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before eating.
