This was my first week back at school and I really wasn’t ready to go back.
Given my reluctance to return to the books I decided to end my first week back with a little treat: chocolate pudding.
But not just any old choco pudding, we’re rockin’ out with HEALTHY choco puddin’. It’s non-dairy, super high in potassium and completely GUILT-FREE! Yes, that’s right! Guilt. Free. And it’s ridiculously easy to whip up. How much more of a treat can you get?
Guilt-Free Chocolate Pudding
Serves: 2 or 1 really greedy chocoholic
6 dates*, no seeds
2-4T agave nectar (to taste)
1/4 to 1/3 cup cacao powder (to taste)
1.5T vanilla extract
2 ripe avocados, meat only
extra: 1/2 banana
1. In a food processor mix dates, agave nectar and vanilla. Add avocados and cacao and mix until everything is creamy and smooth.
2. Extra: I threw in half a banana to give a little banana-y taste and sliced the other half to go on top of my pudding. Sprinkle with nuts and you’re done!
*Some people make this recipe without dates and instead use 1/2-3/4 cup of agave. I, however, don’t like using that much agave and prefer to get the sweetness from natural dates instead. Experiment and see which way you like best.
