It’s an all avocado weekend here it seems. First we had veggies and guacamole, zesty with lime and zingy with garlic and chipotle,  for dinner. And to treat myself for a week of damn healthy eating – if you ask nicely I’ll let you see my food journal – I’ve whipped out my Blendtec and whipped up a batch of raw avocado chocolate pudding. And it’s awesome, so awesome that I’d be remiss not to share the recipe with you. So go forth and treat yo’self.

Mostly Raw Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

Mostly Raw Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe Hass avocado (do not attempt this with an unripe avocado, you will be sorry, trust)
  • 1/2 cup homemade almond milk (made with raw almonds) or store bought
  • 1-1/2 TBSP raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 15 drops liquid stevia (you can also use honey, maple syrup or agave to sweeten instead)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of chipotle chile powder or cayenne.
  • Optional toppings: raw cacao nibs, raw almonds, raspberries

Instructions

  1. Halve and scoop flesh from avocado.
  2. Add almond milk, to Blendtec (or food processor), followed by avocado, raw cacao powder, vanilla, stevia, cinnamon, salt, chipotle powder.
  3. Blend or process until smooth and creamy.
  4. Taste to adjust sweetness. Raw cacao seems to require plenty of sweetness to round it out. If using stevia, add two or three drops at a time until you've achieved your ideal balance.
  5. Spoon into serving dishes and top with raw almonds and cacao nibs. Don't skip adding something crunchy! The contrast of smooth and velvety with crispy is fabulous.
