I am a dessert lover. If given the choice at a restaurant, I'll easily forgo the
meal appetizer so that I can save space for a sweet treat at the end of the meal. The thing is though, it's rare that I ever find time to make dessert at home. That and the fact that the last thing I need kicking around my kitchen are pies, cakes, and other sugary/fatty treats.
Enter Avocado Chocolate Pudding! You're probably thinking "Gross! Why would I want avocado in my chocolate pudding?" Well, the answer is because avocado's are awesome! This superfood is packed full of disease-fighting antioxidants, and while they're high in fat, don't let that scare you away! They contain healthy fats but are also full of soluble and insoluble fibre which can help you lose weight.
See! Told you they're awesome!
In addition, avocado's are amazingly creamy! So much so, that they're often a welcome addition to my morning smoothies!
Did I mention that this recipe is vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and ready in 5 minutes or less? That's right folks, awesome! And I assure you, all you can taste is rich chocolatey goodness in this decadent pudding.
