I think most of us agree that avocados are absolutely fantastic. Mash them up on toast, make guacamole with them, add them to smoothies for extra creaminess - YUM!
Recently I was working with a client and she did not like the mouth feel of avocados and I was shocked. She said she keeps buying them and they always go bad because she doesn't really know what to do with them. I got to be honest, I was little bit taken a back! So this is where this recipe came in and she totally loved it.
Avocados are such a great addition to your diet for several reasons, they are high in fibre and hold a chock full of healthy fats. I love to cut an avocado in half and top with either aged balsamic vinegar or lemon juice with a little bit of salt and eat as a snack in the afternoon. The fats in this fruit will help reduce inflammation in your body, lubricate your joints and keep your brain healthy.
We all know how quickly avocados can turn and to be honest, I am not a fan of eating a brown avocado, so this recipe is perfect if ever you missed that window. It is a delicious and healthy desert and can be topped with a number of things like coconut whipped cream, raspberries, slivered almonds - get creative with this tasty chocolate avocado pudding!!
1 ripe avocado (cut in half, remove the pit and scoop out the flesh)
1 1/2 to 2 tbsp of raw cacao powder (not cocoa powder)
1 tbsp of maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom
1 to 2 tbsp of almond milk or water (might need more to blend)
Add all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth
If you want the consistency thinner, add more liquid
Taste and add more cinnamon, cardamom or maple syrup
