Meatless Monday - Incredible Chocolate Pudding

My friend Alicia (aka "Al") from college is expecting her first child.  She is trying to get off the ground as a holistic nutritionist, based in Vancouver BC, and has started a webpage called New Mama Nourishment.  The site aims to provide nutritional support for women, their partners and their children as their families grow.

Alicia occasionally posts some of her favorite recipes on Facebook.  This chocolate pudding recipe is so great, I had to share it on Suburban Spoon!

Whole Foods Chocolate Pudding (recipe from Recipe from the May/June edition of Mothering Magazine)

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 - 3/4 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup of raw, un-pasteurized honey
  • 1 tablespoon organic, unrefined/ extra virgin coconut oil (available at whole foods, and a great, healthy alternative to vegetable oil in any baking!)
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a food processor (blender will probably work too!), and blend until you get a pudding like consistency. Add a little water at a time, if needed.

You won't believe how delicious this is!!! The great thing about this pudding is that it tastes just like the real thing, but instead of refined sugar and lots of dairy, this uses healthy fats and wholesome honey as a sweetener.

*The magazine notes that you can layer in plain yogurt and top with fruit for a fancy version!

ENJOY!
