Introduction: Creamy Avocado Chocolate Pudding
Two superfoods in one shot! Cocoa and avocado! No, wait... FOUR superfoods! Raw honey and hemp!
Chocolate with avocados sounds like an ugly stepchild, but believe me, once you try it you may never go back to dairy chocolate pudding again. You can't taste the avocado in the recipe, but you do feel the rich creaminess you thought could only come from dairy. If you don't tell your kids there's avocado in it THEY WILL NEVER KNOW.
This recipe is vegetarian, but may or may not be vegan depending upon who you ask. Some vegans eat honey, some don't.
2 medium Haas avocados, ripe
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup raw honey
1/3 - 1/2 cup plain hemp milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Step 1: Guess What You're Gonna Do?
You're going to take all of those ingredients and stick them in your food processor and press whichever button purees the whole mess until it turns velvety and creamy. Stop and squeegee down the sides if you see little green bits, then puree again until you see nothing but rich chocolate loveliness.
That's it. You're done. It's best if you chill it for a little while, if you can wait that long.
Please, let me know how you like it, or if there's anything you would change or add. What would you top this with? Whipped cream? Fresh blueberries? Mango? Walnuts?
