Day 17 : { Chocolate Avocado Pudding}

I already know you’re thinking this sounds gross, but it is fantastic.

I made this awhile ago but last night I was a an Operation Christmas Child packing party at my sister’s house and they were discussing how my sister and her friend Lyndsay went through an obsessive stage of using their chocolate fountain all the time. Anyways someone brought up being so desperate to dunk avocado in the chocolate. Then it reminded me of this awesome pudding I’ve made a couple times ( there are no chocolate fountains involved don’t worry).

If you’re worried about it tasting like avocado it’s not completely free of the avocado taste, BUT it definitely doesn’t taste like chocolate covered avocados.

I have tried many variations of this pudding and even added peanut butter (yum). I have to say this one was my favourite however it was super creamy and the taste was the best!

Also it’s pretty nutritionally sound, so go team ( as my boyfriend would say). Avocado’s are considered power food, high in fat ( the good fat) that can be substituted for meat ( or any other form of protein).

“They have nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving, including potassium(which helps control blood pressure, lutien (which is good for your eyes), and folate (which is crucial for cell repair and during pregnancy).Avocados are a good source of B vitamins, which help you fight off disease and infection. They also give you vitamins C and E, plus natural plant chemicals that may help prevent cancer.Avocados are low in sugar And they contain fiber, which helps you feel full longer. “

So Avocado’s are saving the world basically. Now go eat 15 avocado’s or at least make this pudding.
