Description:
This chocolate avocado pudding is creamy, delicious, and healthy! A great way to get your chocolate fix in a healthier way!
Have you heard of chocolate avocado pudding? Have you wondered if it would actually be good? Recently I noticed we had a few extra ripe avocados, I decided to give it a whirl. Literally. In my new blender. I didn’t have a recipe, I just pulled a few ingredients out and blended them up, and surprise! Chocolate avocado pudding is good. Very good, actually.

It looks just like regular chocolate pudding, and you can’t taste the avocado, it just adds a really nice creaminess. And of course it adds some nice nutritional benefits as well, like lots of good, healthy fats.
Dessert without the guilt.

Some tips about this chocolate avocado pudding:

You do need to make sure that the avocado is perfectly ripe. An under ripe avocado won’t work, because it won’t be able to be blended down into a creamy consistency, and an overripe avocado also won’t work, because it won’t taste good.
You need the avocado to be just right. No brown spots or streaks inside – don’t try it – it won’t work!
If you taste the pudding, and you think it needs more sweetener, or more cocoa, go ahead and add some. Use your own judgement.


Ingredients:
1 avocado medium sized, ripe
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
6 Tablespoons non-dairy milk
optional: pistachios or other nut for topping


Directions:
Cut open the avocado and scoop out the pit.
Cut it into large chunks and put in the blender.
Add the cocoa, maple syrup or honey, and non-dairy milk.
Blend, starting on low and then moving to high speed until it is smooth.
If the avocado is larger, you will need a bit more of each ingredient.
If it is too thick, drizzle in a bit more non-dairy milk.
Add more cocoa or honey or agave to taste.
Refrigerate the pudding and serve cold.
Top with pistachios if desired.

Wellness Tip
Cruciferous Vegetables
Please pass the cruciferous vegetables. This vegetable family includes kale, cauliflower, broccoli, and brussels sprouts. They seem to be linked to reducing cancers, preventing cataracts, fighting heart disease and regulating blood pressure. Try to include this group of vegetables in your diet at least 2-3 times per week. They are best when raw or lightly cooked.

Cheesy Mushroom and Asparagus Cheese Bake

Description: Whole-wheat Pasta is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates which provide a slow release of energy. Unlike simple sugars that offer a quick, yet fleeting boost of energy, pasta helps sustain energy.
Pasta is a useful source of protein, is very low in sodium and cholesterol-free. Whole wheat pasta can provide up to 25% of daily fiber requirements in every one cup portion.Pastas are a good source of iron (with about 2mg in a 1-cup serving), potassium, and many are also enriched with thiamine, niacin, and other B vitamins.

Asparagus is an alkaline food which is rich in protein but low in calories and carbohydrates. Although it's available all year round, asparagus usually is most found and best in spring and is harvested when it is about 6 to 8 inches tall. It is an excellent source of potassium, folic acid, vitamins A, C and K, and traces of vitamin B complex. A good source of dietary fiber, asparagus is also rich in niacin, phosphorus and very low sodium. And my favourite health benefit of asparagus and certainly most impressive is that it is one of those few vegetables that actually has the calcium and magnesium in the ideal ratio of 2:1.
