Raw Chocolate Pudding
You don’t have to feel deprived when you can’t have dairy and/or gluten when you have options like this! This is a great healthy dessert for kids.
- 2 soft bananas
- 1 soft avocado
- 1 tbsp agave nectar or raw honey (or sweetner of choice)
- 2 tbsp raw cocoa powder (carob powder if you are avoiding chocolate)
Combine all ingredients and blend in a food processor or by using a braun hand mixer. Add agave nectar to taste. Refrigerate for one hour. Enjoy! Makes 4 servings. My kids love this!
