Healthy Chocolate Pudding
You will absolutely love this rich, creamy chocolate treat! The best part is you don't have to feel guilty eating it - it's made with superfoods and is so good for you. Here is the recipe:
3-4 avocados, peel & remove seed
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 cup r aw honey or maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
Put all ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender and process or blend until smooth. Adjust ingredients to taste, if needed.
Be sure to use raw cacao in this recipe. That's the main superfood. Cacao has the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food in the world and is a big source of magnesium, the most deficient mineral in the Standard American Diet. Cacao contains 314% of the U.S. RDA of iron per 1oz. serving. It also has chromium, manganese, zinc, copper, vitamin C, and omega-6 fatty acids. It even contains phenylethylamines, which are the chemicals our bodies produce when we fall in love, anandamide, a cannabinoid endorphin that is naturally released from the body after exercise, and serotonin, a neurotransmitter that makes us feel good. What's not to love! Enjoy!
