Recipe #2: 5-minute Chocolate Pudding

Originally inspired and adjusted from Alex's Raw Chocolate Pudding recipe on allrecipes.com.

5-minute Chocolate Pudding
(see Banana Pudding option below**)


1 large avocado (or 2 small ones), yes you read that right
1 ripe banana
1 cup coconut milk (or other milk)
1/3 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. honey (or other sugar if you must)
2 tsp. vanilla essence
dash sea salt
tiny dash stevia powder, optional*

*I started adding the stevia because I don't enjoy the sweetness of chocolate when made only with honey. The stevia, imho, gives it a little extra something that is better for cocoa than honey alone. I have a fruit-chocolate taboo, but I'm getting over it.

**If you want to avoid chocolate or cocoa for some reason, it is possible to make it Banana Pudding, in which case I recommend omitting cocoa and stevia and adding some cinnamon and/or nutmeg.

Put everything in the blender. And blend. Really, that's it. Pour into 3-4 cups and refrigerate 30 minutes.

Or just eat it out of the blender... your call.
