I was talking to Hillary, my CrossFit coach this morning and she told me about the pudding she recently made with avocados in it.
I know what you're thinking. Avocados? In pudding?
However, I've seen several variations of recipes floating around the web for this, and since I had 1.5 avocados (the other half was put in a smoothie this morning) that were destined for the trash the next day because they were so ripe, I set out in search of a solution.
Here is the link to the original recipe, my variation is below.
- 1-2 ripe avocados. Like, super ripe, skin is black and a little mushy and you are contemplating throwing them out because you didn't use them in time.
- 2-3T dark chocolate cocoa powder
- 2-3T honey (depending on your level of sweetness)
- Dash of vanilla extract
- 1/4-1/2C of coconut milk
In a food processor, combine the avocados, cocoa powder, honey and vanilla and blend until smooth. Gradually add in coconut milk until your level of desired consistency is met. I probably added a little over 1/4 cup, and it came out nice and thick and creamy.
This is a very rich pudding, so a little will go along way if you are craving something chocolate :) Also, it is so thick that it makes a great dip for fruit!
