choclate pudding

I know, the picture looks like it could be the beginning of a salad of sorts, but nope.  It’s dessert.

You just have to try this to believe how good it is.  By now almost everyone has made the chocolate tofu mousse, but if you are like our family and cutting down on such a high soy intake during the Fast, then that dessert is out.

This is a a paleo lenten chocolate pudding recipe and the base is bananas and avocado.  Years ago I read that they make an ice cream out of avocado in South America, so making a pudding isn’t too far of a stretch.

Lenten Chocolate Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1-4 tablespoons maple syrup (optional – ripe bananas are very sweet, give it a taste before you add)
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup cocoa powder (Penzey’s,
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • optional : pinch of cinnamon

Peel bananas and scoop avocado out of shell.  Place remaining ingredients in a food processor or blender.  Process until creamy.  Place in individual dishes and serve right away or refrigerate.

You can top with toasted coconut, toasted almonds or hazelnuts.

 

Simple.  Easy. Delicious.  Everyone wants more lenten chocolate pudding.
