Avocado Chocolate Pudding with Carob
There are many recipes for this pudding. It’s decadent, delicious and rich in essential nutrients. Here’s our kid tested variation:
- 4 avocados
- unpasteurized honey to taste
- cocoa powder to taste
- carob powder to taste (optional)
- cold pressed unrefined olive oil
Squeeze the flesh from four avocados into the bowl of a food processor.
Add a few tablespoons of cocoa powder and one or two tablespoons of carob. Start with two tablespoons of cocoa and one tablespoon of carob powder. Add more cocoa and carob a bit at a time. Be careful not to add too much. Add honey to taste.
Blend on high until smooth and creamy. Taste and add more cocoa and honey as needed.
If you’re following a ‘sugar-free’ diet, use stevia powder instead of honey.
When you’ve got the taste you like, add about one tablespoon of olive oil and blend on high for a few seconds more.
Chill. Spoon into bowls and serve.
