Choco-Avocado Pudding

Dessert that heals you?  Well we all know how healing chocolate can be.  But, this pudding is made from avocado.  So, it is nutrient dense as well as delicious.

Avocados contain all 18 amino acids necessary for your body to create complete proteins.  They help to boost levels of HDL (good) cholesterol; they are rich in a wide variety of carotenoids, promoting eye health and boosting the immune system; they help guard against inflammation and they promote heart health.  The maca in this recipe is rich in B vitamins, as well as C, and E and provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.

So, why not have a little dessert?

Prep Time
20 min
Ingredients
  1. 4 ripened avocados
  2. 1 cup of powdered carob, or cocoa
  3. 1/2 cup boiling water
  4. 1/2 cup amber agave syrup
  5. 1/2 cup dried fruits (dates or prunes)
  6. 1 tablespoon maca root powder
Instructions
  1. 4 ripened avocados
  2. 1/2 cup of powdered carob, or cocoa
  3. 1/2 cup boiling water
  4. 1/2 cup amber agave syrup
  5. 1/2 cup dried fruits (dates or prunes)
  6. 1 tablespoon maca root powder
  7. You will want to peel your avocados first, you may find it easiest to use a dinner sized spoon, and "dig" along the skins to remove the flesh of the avocados. Be sure to sift your cocoa or carob powder until it removes the lumps. A simple mesh strainer should work well. If you don't have one, really this is all going into a food processor and it will be fine in the end, I just like those little attention to details.
  8. Incorporate 1/2 cup of boiling water into the cocoa/carob in a large bowl. Whisk until you create a chocolate "liquor" about as thick as a typical chocolate icing.
  9. This is the most simple recipe really, just throw this all into the food processor and blend until smooth. Start with the dried fruit, to first break it into smaller pieces, I like to add the avocado last, adding 1/4 sized chunks and blending until smooth and all the traces of green avocado are gone.
  10. Chill for 2 hours in the freezer or overnight in the fridge, before serving.
Notes
  1. You may also need strawberries, mint leaves, confectioners sugar, or cocoa for garnish.

    I’m so glad you like it! We’ve been eating it a lot too. My latset creation was to mix it with some cocoa powder (and one time I did fruit), then freeze it in popsicle molds my kids LOVED them. They think it is such a treat, and I am sneaking a little extra protein into them win, win!
