Who Doesn't Love Chocolate Pudding?!

Looking for an easy paleo friendly treat?  How about some chocolate pudding?

The great thing about this is that it has very little sugar, and the majority of the pudding is made from healthy fats, like coconut milk and avocado.  So after you eat it, you have a more satisfied feeling instead of that sugar rush which just leads to more sugar cravings.  But it also tastes wonderful, great texture and you can play around with toppings...say sliced strawberries, blueberries, banana, shredded coconut, homemade whip cream w/organic whipping cream, almond butter, fresh mint.  Whatever your little heart desires (well almost whatever)

Here are a few great recipes you can try, they each are just a little different...

Banana-cado Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate Avocado Pudding from Dessert Stalker 

Paleo Chocolate Pudding from There She Goes

And here is the recipe for the one that I usually make:

2 Ripe Avocados
5 Tablespoons of Coco Powder
6 Pitted Dates
1/2 Teaspoon of Almond Extract
1 Teaspoon of orange zest
2-3 Tablespoons of Full Fat Coconut Milk (the kind in a can!)

Place all ingredients in a food processor or powerful blender.  Blend together.


Serve with a sprinkle of sea salt on top and any other toppings you want :)
