Healthy Chocolate Avocado Pudding

HEALTHY CHOCOLATE AVOCADO PUDDING http://balancingforlife.com/?p=154My aunt sent me a recipe for this pudding a few years ago although I’m not sure where the original recipe came from, but it called for an ungodly amount of white sugar and chocolate chips and who knows what else. It took me a few times making this to get it clean and just right. It is so creamy and satisfying but the best part is that it’s clean.. completely sugar (and guilt) free. Avocados are a nutrient dense food providing substantial amounts of fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B vitamins and folic acid and are high in mono-unsaturated fats.. the good fats. All of this plus the amazing taste makes this a perfect treat to whip up when you are craving something sweet but don’t want to eat something you’ll regret. My family is not a big fan of avocados like I am so when I first made this I never mentioned it was made with avocados! The cat is out of the bag now and they are used to, and actually open to “mom’s weird food”.

      Great and thank you for visiting my site, it’s so nice to hear from you! Let me know your thoughts once you try it.

  • Brian Walton

    How creative! I can’t wait to try it. Is there concern that the avocados have a lot of fat in them?

  • Donna Martin

    Hi Brian and thank you for your comment! A short answer to your question is no. A serving size of an avocado is about 1/5 of a whole one, and in that serving size there are a total of 4.5 g of fat, whereby only .5 of that is saturated. The remaining fat content are your good fats. Considering they are nutrient dense (containing around 15 vitamins and minerals, plus high in Potassium and fiber) they are a great choice!

    Perfect! Good answer. Thanks for the breakdown. Now I can eat it without guilt!
