raw chocolate pudding

I know this month appears to be about chocolate and it’s not even Valentine’s Day.  But what is a girl to do with these chocolate cravings?  Eat your dark chocolate I say.

It is interesting to consider that those who have begun eating avocados in the last few years must raise an eyebrow at the thought of mixing this tropical fruit with chocolate and calling it pudding.  It is understandable given that my husband falls into that category.  Not surprising I fed him the pudding and he looked at me while a pleasing sound escaped his lips.  “It’s avocado,” I said. He frowned and gently put the pudding down.  After a while I noticed that the little mice must have come and eaten the rest…

    I was a little skeptical about this, but it turned out to be amazing. If I hadn’t made it myself, I would have never guessed it was made out of an avocado. It tasted better than most chocolate puddings, and it is a great healthy alternative.

      I am glad you liked the chocolate pudding Elsa! I have to be honest that the first time I made it I was skeptical too because how can avocado be used for chocolate pudding? But it was so smooth and delicious that I was sold immediately. Thank you for writing and letting me know!
