Ecosalon Recipes: Avocado-Chocolate Pudding

-

I always want to eat dessert first – who doesn’t? Better yet is eating dessert for dinner.

Raw chocolate, often called cacao (ka-KOW), is the base ingredient for all chocolaty treats, but the cacao is usually cooked, processed and turned into the well-known cocoa, which is still tasty, but doesn’t have the same amazing nutritional and energizing benefits.

One of my favorite healthy dessert recipes is avocado-chocolate pudding. It’s literally so nutritious and filling that you can have it for dinner.

I never use measurements, so you’ll have to figure everything to taste, but it’s really quite simple:

* 1 or 2 ripe, soft avocados (3/4 to 1 avocado per person)
* A few spoonfuls of raw cacao powder
* A few spoonfuls of natural sweetener (honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup)
*A dash of salt and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice
*A dash of cinnamon, to taste

Simple, fast, delicious! The avocado is a healthy and filling fat source, so you’ll feel like you’ve had a real meal, and it’s such a diverse fruit, it can be eaten sweetened or salted. The cacao powder gives you energy and is high in anti-oxidants. The natural sweeteners make sure you get a slow, sustained rise in blood sugar (unlike refined white sugar, which causes a spike and a crash).

So tonight eat your dessert first and enjoy!
