Chocolate Pudding with a Secret!


Rarely have I craved anything sweet lately, but THIS - THIS is different. This is HEALTH food...(grin). After school, Daughter is itching to bake and/or create something. So, I printed out this recipe from www.glutenfreepantry.blogspot.com for her to whip up, and I do mean whip up because it takes just a few minutes to prepare. 

The secret to this chocolate pudding is that it's nutrient dense. That's right, chocolate pudding that is good for you. 

The following ingredients were added to our Vitamix, but I'm sure you could use a food processor if you don't have one:

1 can coconut milk
1 ripe avocado
1/3 c cocoa powder
1/2 c coconut sugar
4 dates (soaked in 1c water for 30 minutes)
1 T vanilla
1/4 tsp sea salt

We actually used 6 dates for ours, because they seemed smaller than usual. Don't forget to remove the pits and discard the soaking water. Blend for 3 minutes or so and either serve straight from the blender or chill and then serve. I had it both ways. Chilling make the consistency a little thicker.

Here is a link to the original recipe.

Enjoy the day-
