For a chocolate fix that’s very healthy for you, try this delicious vegan pudding. It has all the taste and creaminess you expect in a decadent chocolate dessert without the added guilt (not to mention the waistline :/ )! I’ve been playing around with the ingredients for a while now, and can happily say that I’ve found the right mix to satisfy one’s sweet tooth!
If you find a couple of ripened avocados in the back of the fridge and are unsure what to do with them – make pudding!
Vegan Chocolate Pudding Yields: ~ 2 Cups or 4 servings
2 very ripened avocados
1/2C cocoa powder
1/2C Organic honey or agave nectar
1tsp vanilla extract
1/4C Yoso vanilla yogurt or vegan yogurt of choice
Shredded coconut for garnish
Strawberries, raspberries or any citrusy fruit like orange segments (very recommended!) for garnish
Drop all the ingredients except for the coconut and the fruit into a blender. Blend on high for approximately 2 minutes, ensuring all the ingredients are nicely blended together (you may need to scrape the bowl down a couple of times).
The final product should look like this – decadent and silky smooth.
Pour into pretty bowls and garnish with coconut and fruit. I do highly recommend raspberries or segmented oranges to go on top as well. The tartness would complement the rich chocolate flavor very well. I didn’t have any on hand last night but I will definitely be doing that myself :)
Happy diving and bon appétit! xo
