I have always been so skeptical of using avocados for sweet tasting things. I was worried they would taste too avocado-y... if you know what I mean. I'm not a huge fan of avocados, well, at least not until today!
Up until now I've used them for mainly 2 things - guacamole (of course) and a honey-sweetened dressing I've had at sushi restaurants (also pretty darn tasty). But, today, my eyes have been opened and I'm a believer! That creamy texture really can be used for the awesomeness that is usually ridden with dairy and refined sugar... i.e.: pudding and icing.
It's good. Really good. And make from avocados. Which are good for you. So that's great, right? :)
And, best of all, this recipe has 3 ingredients. Just 3. Which makes it easy.
So, to sum up, this is easy, healthy, and delicious. Can't get any better than that!
Total time: 5 minutes
1 ripe avocado (would work for a single serving as shown in picture)
1/4 cup maple syrup (or another sweetener of choice)
1 heaping tablespoon cocoa powder
What to do:
1) Add all ingredients to a food processor, blender, or mixer. Blend until smooth and chocolate-y looking! Taste to be sure!
2) Enjoy now or cover and refrigerate until ready to enjoy! I'm not sure how long it would last, but most likely not after a day or two.
