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
Dining Out
When dining out, remember the budget rule. If you spend a lot of your fat budget on French fries, consider saving on other parts of the meal. You might choose low-fat complements such as a grilled chicken sandwich (hold the greasy sauces and cheese), and vegetables. Spending too much of your fat budget on one meal can lead to a high daily or weekly fat intake.

Ratatouille

Description: Herbes de Provence (Provençal herbs) is a mixture of dried herbs from Provence invented in the 1970s.The standard mixture typically contains savory, fennel, basil, and thyme flowers and other herbs. The proportions vary by manufacturer. Thyme usually dominates the taste produced by the herb mixture. Lavender is only added in American mixes but is not used in French traditional mixes. Herbes de Provence are used to flavour grilled foods such as fish and meat, as well as vegetable stews. The mixture can be added to foods before or during cooking or mixed with cooking oil prior to cooking so as to infuse the flavour into the cooked food. They are rarely added after cooking is complete.
