Nutrient Rich Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding
1 ripe avocado
Cocoa Powder (raw is best)
A pinch of sea salt
Honey (raw and unfiltered is best)
Coconut butter or oil
Vanilla Extract or Vanilla from the bean
OPTIONS: Chopped raw nuts, unsweetened shredded coconut, fruit
Remove the pit from avocado and scoop meat into food processor (I used my mini for this one). Add 2-3 spoonfuls of cocoa powder, 2 spoonfuls if coconut oil, a pinch of salt, 2-3 spoonfuls of honey (to taste) and spoonful of vanilla extract. Pulse until desired texture is achieved. Taste for desired sweetness. Fold in any additional ingredients and place in the fridge for 10 minutes or so (if you can wait that long) then enjoy!
* I do not recommend this as a after dinner dessert or a bed time snack, as the chocolate can tend to hype people up. Make it a weekend treat or after school/work snack.
