Chocolate Avocado Pudding

– Ingredients-


servings: 4

1 ripe avocado
⅛ cup cocoa powder
⅛ cup maple syrup

– Directions –


1. Peel and pit the avocado, and place in the bowl of food processor.
2. Add in ⅛ cup (2 tbsp) cocoa powder.
3. Add in 2 tbsp maple syrup.
4. Put the top on the food processor and press start. Let it go for a minute or so.
5. Stop and remove the lid. Scrape any green bits into the mixture and let it whir again until everything is smooth and glossy and brown.
6. Taste test—does it need a little more chocolate? Add in a bit… If the consistency isn’t smooth enough or sweet enough, add a little more maple syrup. Blend again.
7. Store in the refrigerator.


This entire recipe (depending on the size of the avocado) weighs in at about 400 calories.
