real food. real life.
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.
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.
