Paleo Chocolate Pudding


I have had a major sweet tooth of late.  I’ve tried to be good (really!), but I’ve been consuming fruit like crazy.  I came across this recipe on the diet/lifestyle blog “Delighted Momma”.  I didn’t make any changes, except halving the recipe so it would fit in my teeny tiny food processor.  It was delicious and tasted so decadent!  It’s very rich, just sweet enough, and so satisfying, since unlike regular pudding, this recipe uses fat and protein-packed ingredients.  It’s quick and easy too (I whipped up a batch 5 mins before I left to go to the gym).  Enjoy!

Paleo Chocolate Pudding

1 whole avocado, skins and pit removed

1 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp honey or 1 tbsp raw honey (or, probably, 1 tbsp maple syrup)

2 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 banana (optional, but the pudding will be pretty avocado-ey without the banana)

1. Put everything in a food processor

2. blend until smooth

3. Refrigerate until set (about 1 hour)

4. Try to eat it in 2 sittings instead of 1
