We would all like to think that chocolate pudding is good for us, but for the most part we would be fooling ourselves, said dessert being chock-full of bad fats and sugars. How about a chocolate pudding that is really yummy and good for you, provided you don’t sit down and inhale the entire recipe yourself (everything in moderation, right?). I think I may have stumbled upon something.
A mere six ingredients tossed into a blender or food processor result in the most velvety smooth chocolate pudding you may ever stick a spoon into. Oh baby, this is sooo good!
Check out the recipe for this fudgey rich chocolate pudding here. It couldn’t get any easier than this. Just toss the cocoa powder, avocado (yep, you read that right), honey, coconut oil, vanilla, and salt into the blender. Spoon it into dessert cups, chill, and you and three of your most favorite friends will be indulging in gooey deliciousness in no time. I like to top it off with my own whipped topping (heavy whipping cream and vanilla) and toasted unsweetened coconut.
NOTE: Even those who do not like avocado should give this a whirl. Seriously, you cannot taste the avocado.
Terry has never failed to lick the spatula, his fingers and mine (was that too much information?). This dessert borders on an obsession with him.
Here are some of the health benefits you will be gaining, along with tantalizing your taste buds:

- assists in the manufacture and function of insulin

Honey (I use organic raw honey and about 1/2 what the recipe calls for)
- relieves seasonal allergies
- supports good bacteria
- improves sleep
- antibiotic and antiviral properties
