Wowzer Vegan Chocolate Pudding!


I have been wanting to try this ever since seeing it on Angela's blog. I finally had some just perfect avocados and gave it a whirl. OHMYWORD! It was amazing. And what a great recipe as it can easily be adapted to raw. I bet I could even use Splenda and make it for my husband. And what a bonus to have Orion eating all that avocado! ;)


4 avocados
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not dutch processed) OR 1/2 cup carob powder
3/4 cup maple syrup OR honey OR agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt

Method:
Slice the avocados in half, remove the pit and scoop the flesh away from the skin.
Add to blender or food processor along with the other ingredients.
Process until smooth.
*Add water in 1 Tablespoon increments if needed to achieve a creamy consistency.

Variation 1: This pudding makes an excellent pie filling. Just line the bottom of a prepared pie crust with your favorite fruit. Bananas work very well. Spread the chocolate frosting on top of the fruit. Refrigerate before serving.

Variation 2: This pudding also makes a great frosting for cakes. Just spread like any other frosting onto your favorite cake.
