Chocolate almond butter avocado pudding – an irresistible dairy free pudding made from cacao, almond butter and avocado with banana.
Try saying chocolate almond butter avocado pudding really fast and then get back to me. Trust me the name of this recipe is quite a mouthful (pun intended) and long overdue. I love to spoil my family with my cooking, whenever I’m cooking or baking I always do it in large batches, though my pictures never seem to reflect the true quantity.
What is a girl supposed to do with the leftovers after cooking for countless hours? That’s where my family are truly blessed. Being the kind, caring woman that I am I just had to share any leftovers with family (which occurs after almost every recipe).
Chocolate avocado pudding with healthy fats
I hope you guys are huge fans of chocolate puddings because this one is a real kicker. It was one of those impromptu spare of the moment treats.
It all begun with a large number of avocados I purchased ready to make some guacamole while the guacamole came out superb I contemplated making a pudding using nothing but clean healthy fats, you know the type which reduces inflammation and lowers the bad fats (LDL) in our body.
Needless to say with the aforementioned health benefits you can eat this pudding guilt free.
Using dates to sweetener chocolate almond butter avocado pudding
I sweetened the pudding with a handful of 8 softened dates (approximately). Alternatively, date paste can be used or if you don’t want to utilise either one of those option, you can opt for any sweetener you wish just along as it’s a low GI index.
