:: stop-press-worthy pudding [oh my!] ::

It's sad because I know you all will have no trouble believing me (so there's no use saying "You won't believe...!") when I say

Last night, I made the chocolate pudding.

It doesn't taste remotely healthy.

It is so crazy RICH.

And Jason says it's now it's his favourite. The male seal of approval - YES!

Now for the key ingredient. Definitely the secret ingredient.


Yes!! So it's pumped full of good fats and you would NEVER TELL. I swear, I wasn't sure if it was going to work but when I tasted it, I groaned audibly for a good long while. And repeated to Jason over and over, that I'd finally hit the jackpot/this is it/wait till you try this/I've reached the epitome of my find-a-healthy-way-to-eat-naughty career.

It honest-to-johnson tastes like a dairy-based, sugary, full of melted-chocolate dessert.

Best Chocolate Pudding Ever

(adapted from Oh She Glows)
  • 2 cups very ripe avocado flesh (approx 3 medium avocados, I only needed 2), pitted and scooped out
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp smooth peanut butter (or omit for nut free)
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder (thickener, probably optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1. Place all ingredients into food processor. Wizz till smooth. Enough for 2 "wow" after-dinner desserts.

If you don't mind the nuts, I would say most definitely include the tablespoon of peanut butter. Jason said it was his favourite thing about it. I thought it quite subtle, but it did give the whole pudding a rounder taste, similar to if there was such a thing as Snickers Mousse or something like that. I'm not always a nut/chocolate fan, but this was perfect.

If you come to visit, I will make this for you. I promise it is not to miss.


Love me x
