Dairy Free Chocolate (Avocado) Pudding

Ok, this is going to sound strange, but here are your ingredients:

cocoa powder
vanilla extract
maple syrup

(not so scientific) Directions

Place desired number of avocados in food processor. (Three regular sized ones give a nice sized portion for four people.)

Start processing. Add cocoa powder by the tablespoon until the green turns brown like chocolate. You may need to stop the processor and scrape down the sides. Add a dash of vanilla. Then begin adding the maple syrup while processing and do several taste tests until it is sweet enough.


PS. My kids have been known to make a mess while eating this! :)

~I found this recipe at Green & Crunchy

I make chocolate/avocado smoothies for myself all the time! I never thought about tinkering with the idea for my son.

Along the same lines, here's a wonderful, easy (and healthy) dairy-free "ice cream" recipe:

Combine frozen banana slices and coconut milk in a food processor until it reaches desired consistency. Enjoy immediately.

About as unscientific as your recipe :) but very tasty.
