Brooke Mader CHC
Avocado-Cacao Pudding ...in 1 minute
This takes healthy pudding to a whole new level.
1 Ripe avocado
2 tbsp cacao
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup thick coconut milk
Place all ingredients in blender. Amounts are optional. If you need more liquid in the blender, add more coconut milk.
Place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes and enjoy.
So why is this pudding healthy?
Avocadoes are filled with monounsaturated fats that help aid in brain health, blood pressure and weight management. It is the perfect superfood. And thanks to it's creaminess....it's perfect for pudding.
Raw Cacao: A healthy, non processed chocolate that is as close to natural as possible (coming from the cacao bean). Since cacao is not heavily processed, it retains it's flavonoids, boosts brain health and our mood. I sure do feel a lot happier after this meal!
Coconut milk is a healthy fat which contributes to smoother skin, better heart health, lowered cholesterol levels, and coconuts are also a natural antibacterial.
