Guilt free chocolate pudding
Updated: Aug 20, 2018
Yes! You can have pudding for breakfast and feel good about it.
This pudding is free from dairy, gluten, processed sugar and is filled with healthy fats. It's made from a secret ingredient: avocados. Are you on Team Avocado like I am? #gimmealltheavocados You can have a special treat and feel good about the fact that you're not blowing your clean way of eating. Yes, I know some of the ingredients sound really sketchy (balsamic vinegar in pudding??) but trust me. TRUST ME. If you use the Grade B maple syrup, that has good minerals in it.
This recipe was given to me by a friend of mine, April Harvey of The Mothered Momma, who is the most wonderful doula in Orlando, Florida. She treats her Momma's with good things such as this. She preaches the power of food and good nutrition but she also believes that it's got to taste good! If you are a woman thinking about getting pregnant, please give her a call; she will talk to you about good nutrition to prepare your body for pregnancy, during pregnancy and after birth.
Behold, the recipe:
2 cups avocado (2 whole Haas avo's)
1/2 cup Grade B Maple Syrup (I use agave syrup when I'm out of maple syrup)
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp Braggs Amino Acids or coconut amino acids (if you don't have either, soy sauce will do)
2 TBSP coconut oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
*Dump all ingredients into a food processor. Pulse slowly in the beginning, then pulse just until it's smooth.
Top with fresh berries and hemp seeds and enjoy! Serves 2. Or possibly one, if you gobble it down before your partner sees that you made this.
NOTE-I also add a tsp of maca powder and 1/2 to 1 tsp of cinnamon before mixing.
