Non~Dairy Chocolate Pudding. AKA: Chocolate Heaven.

Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding.  You will either hate me or love me after this post.   Sometimes life calls for a little indulgence.  It is certainly in my blood to desire a “treat” or a sweet indulgence.  With all the garbage out there these days that might taste good for the moment, but makes me feel like crap within an hour…..it is a gift to find these better-for-you “treats”. And to be able to do so relatively guilt-free makes life all the more pleasurable.

This decadent chocolate treat is elegant enough to be served at a dinner party, or casual enough to put in your lunch box container for work or school.  Can easily be made in 5 minutes.  The base for this delicious pudding are these beauties:

Avocados: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.  I use them in smoothies, salads, puddings, soups and the list goes on.  Avocado is an uber nutrient-dense food. A good-for-you fat, that is excellent source of potassium, soluble fiber, and is rich in antioxidants  which boost our immune system, slow the aging process and promote a healthy nervous system.

The Four “Pillows” ~ This blends up *so* beautifully in the Vitamix!

Chocolate Pudding
Serves two

2 avocados
1/2 cup almond milk
4 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1/4 cup sweetner (raw honey, agave, stevia)
Generous sprinkling of real sea salt.  **Do not skip**
Splash of pure vanilla extract

Blend in Vitamix , you will need to use the tamper and spatula to scape sides down.  Refrigerate (if you can wait that long!!)

Have fun with it!!  Variations:  use mint extract for a “choco-mint”, add nut-butter, add handful of spinach (greens hide soooo easily in chocolate desserts!!)   xo
