Healthy Chocolate Pudding

Aguacate / Avocado

Avocado

Mmmmm……have you ever wanted to have the most amazing chocolate pudding, but worried about how it may affect your health? Well if you are looking for an amazing creamy healthy alternative, then look no further!  This pudding is so creamy and delicious, I made some this morning for my afternoon snack, and I cannot stop thinking about it!

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 tbsp of raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp of raw honey or agave syrup
  • 1 tsp of vanilla bean powder
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of sea salt

Put all ingredients in a small food processor and blend until nice and creamy smooth.

This recipe is not only delicious, but contains food are really good for you! Despite what you may think about chocolate, raw cacao is the highest whole food source of magnesium! Magnesium relaxes muscles, improves peristalsis in the bowels and relaxes the heart and cardiovascular system. The antioxidants in cacao have been clinically proven to dissolve plaque build up in the arteries which helps in reversing heart disease and naturally lower blood pressure.  Now if that doesn’t make you want to eat more cacao, I don’t know what will ;) Cacao has so many amazing health benefits, plus it makes you feel good, which is I guess is why some people prefer it over sex.  Avocados are a good source of vitamin K, potassium, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin C and copper.  They also promote heart health and are a good source of dietary fiber.  So grab an avocado and throw it into your pudding, smoothie, salad or experiment and send me your recipe :)
