Raw Chocolate Pudding is one of my favourite desserts and snacks to have on hand. It meets my desire for chocolate without being a sugar overload for my body and it’s super simple to make! I love to make up a batch and divide it into small tupperware containers to enjoy over the next few days. It’s great in school lunches as it doesn’t contain any nuts. Some people mix up this recipe and then put the pudding in popsicle molds for a summer time treat.
Mix all ingredients together in a stand mixer or food processor and put in the fridge for an hour to set.
2 soft bananas
1 soft avocado
1 Tbsp maple syrup or agave nectar
2 Tbsp raw cacao powder (I typically add more then this)
Avocados are a great source of healthy fats which help us heal on a cellular level and keep us feeling
satisfied from our snack longer.
Maple Syrup is a sugar source, but also has nutritional benefits, unlike refined sugar. This sweet liquid contains zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium and as many as 24 different antioxidants. This combination of nutrients make maple syrup a food that helps fight inflammation. As with all sweet foods we need to eat maple syrup in small amounts.
Raw Cacao is one of the fabulous superfoods. It’s loaded with many great health promoting nutrients including antioxidants, which help us to prevent age related illnesses and diseases. Raw cacao is also the richest food source of magnesium. This incredible mineral helps to relax muscles, calms the nervous system and supports a healthy cardiovascular system.
