So the #1 thing I get from people ( outside of my beautiful, sheltered halo of my Crossfit box) when I tell them I eat paleo is the question :
” wait ….. so you don’t eat _____ ? ” or “That doesn’t sound like much fun”
I made this Chocolate pudding last night and I felt like I was eating the delicious but may-one-day-kill-you-because-it’s-full-of-preservatives Snack Pack pudding cups I ate as a kid. It’s that good. I love when I make a paleo treat that tastes too good that I’m convinced it has to have something not good for me in it. THIS RECIPE IS IT! Be prepared to be in heaven.
But warning : If you are not a fan of super dark chocolate ( like 70% or more) or super rich chocolate desserts, this may not be for you. If you prefer milk chocolate, I suggest adding some coconut milk before blending, or increasing the honey ratio to sweeten it up.
Chocolate Paleo Pudding
( Yields 2-3 servings. It’s very rich so you don’t need much)
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup honey ( I use Amber honey – so good!)
- 2 heaping tbsp coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tsp coconut butter
Get out your food processor. First blend the avocado, the coconut oil, and the cocoa powder for about a minute, until very well mixed and no loose powder is left on the sides. You might need to pulse the buttons. Then add half the honey and the vanilla. Blend well again. Add the remaining honey and the coconut butter. Blend. I find that was the best order to do things in.
Serve with coconut flakes or fruit on top. Eat with spoon, be in heaven!
