Recipe: Raw Chocolate Pudding
Recipe origin: I had been looking for a good non-dairy dessert. I do love silken tofu pudding but this one spawned from the standard use it or lose it with both the banana and avocado. There was a raw pudding in my school cafeteria one day and came home to the above mentioned fruit. I searched for a raw pudding recipe online and in true Karina fashion... I modified it. :) Can someone please tell me why avocados can sit on the counter for a week hard as a rock then BOOM mush overnight?
Raw Chocolate Pudding
1/2 a banana (ripe or overripe)
3 Tbl honey (or liquid sugar)
2 Tbl coconut oil
3 Tbl cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt (healthy pinch)
1. Put all ingredients into blender or food processor. I did it in stages. Avocado and banana blended then the rest added.
I think if the banana was a bit more ripe I could cut the honey to 1 or 2 Tbl. The more you eat the richer it tastes and less of a banana taste it gets. I have also in past made this with no oil and extra banana. After all recipes are just a starting point. Season and measure with your heart.
Protein boost: Add flavor and protein with PB powder.
This is a half recipe and serves 2-3 people. Or one person having a bad day.
