Guilt Free Chocolate Pudding

What an amazing dessert this is!  It is easy to make, stores great in the fridge, and doesn’t contain any of the harmful chemicals, sugars, or preservatives that store bought chocolate pudding contains.  And as an added bonus, it is actually HEALTHY for you!

What you will need:

1 ripe avocado

3 tablespoons raw cacao powder

5 mejool dates, pitted and soaked (if they need to be softened)

1 teaspoon of 100% organic maple syrup

¾ cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy and smooth.  You may need to scrape the sides during the blending process to ensure everything is mixed evenly.

Place the pudding in a bowl and store in the fridge for a few hours so it can chill and set.

Top the pudding with your favorite ingredients, such as:

Berries

Hemp seeds

Unsweetened coconut flakes

Chopped nuts

Fresh mint

Sliced banana

Cinnamon

Maca Powder

Carob chips

Raw Cacao is jam-packed with antioxidants, and is one of the worlds best sources of magnesium and iron, which play a critical role in healthy blood, heart health, brain power and strong bones.  This superfood also contains Phenylethylamine (PEA), which is the chemical that our bodies produce when we fall in love! (Probably why we all love chocolate so much).  Its scientific name, Theobroma cacao translates to “cacao, food of the gods”.  I mean, are you in love with this stuff yet?? I know I am!!  And remember, this is dessert!

I hope that you enjoy this pudding as much as I do; actually, I know that you will.

with love and chocolate,

Amanda

      • Hey, thank you!! I watched this video by Gary Yourofsky (The best speech you will ever hear), and I went vegan instantly. I felt so incredibly naive, and shameful that I didn´t realize the state of the meat- and dairy industry. It truly felt life changing, and I hope I can inspire others to do the same. Take care! x
