A chocolate treat that makes all your dessert guilt slip away!

Full of antioxidants, cocoa fights inflammation, helping ward disease.  Cocoa also helps improve your memory and improve brain health by increasing blood flow, while supporting cardiovascular health.. Avocado is loaded with heart-healthy good fats and contains more potassium than bananas. You can’t taste the avocado, it just adds a really nice creaminess. Dessert without the guilt.

Ingredients

2 medium size ripe avocados
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
3  Medjool dates, pitted, soaked in warm water for 15 minutes and chopped
1/2 cup raw cocoa powder
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 – 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (depending upon whether you like your pudding thick or thin)

Directions

1. Combine coconut oil, chopped dates, maple syrup (or honey), vanilla, avocados, cocoa powder, and half of the coconut milk into a blender or food processor.

2. Blend 2-3 minutes until smooth.

3. Pour in additional coconut milk slowly until the pudding is the consistency you desire. (The pudding will thicken after chilling in the refrigerator.)

4. Spoon the pudding into ramekins, small bowls, or small mason jars. Cover and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Optional: Top with sliced bananas & whipped coconut cream, orange zest, or toasted coconut before serving.
