If you’re ready for something creamy, sweet and decadent, minus any sugar, artificial sweeteners, or processed anything, you’ll love this pudding.
This is a healthy, beautifying food that is ok to have in moderation. Can you say healthy, glowing skin?
This delicious pudding is made with healthy fats (coconut meat and avocado) and some dark coco powder (antioxidants and magnesium), and a natural sweetener of choice.
I prefer Stevia, just a few drops is all it takes. You’ll need a small blender. I love using my NutriBullet for this recipe.
My 5 yr old daughter requests this pudding and loves helping me make it.
It’s very easy to do since there are only 5 ingredients, including water!
When you were dieting, think of how many times you were counting calories every day to lose weight-and feeling deprived.
If you were anything like me, I used to gravitate towards low-caloric and fat-free foods. Full-fat anything, forget about it! Those days are over now, thankfully.
Eliminating fat-free foods and snacks that are void of any nutritional value and replacing them with whole food options (things from nature), will set you up for success, from the inside out.
That translates as glowing skin, being at your ideal weight, less trips to the doctor’s office, better sleep, feeling energized when you wake up, having amazing workouts, and most of all feeling present and alive in your body.
I was skeptical of these types of foods at first. Now I can’t live without them.
Whole foods are the new comfort food!
Who says you can’t have your pudding and eat it, too?
Here’s the recipe. Enjoy!
Makes 2 servings
1 cup coconut meat* (exoticsuperfoods.com)
*If you don’t have coconut meat, you can use a banana. I suggest getting some coconut meat, especially if you like puddings and smoothies. It really heightens the taste, nutrition and consistency. You can freeze what you don’t use right away. Coconut meat is alkaline, contains lots of potassium and is composed primarily of 44.6% lauric acid, which is used by the body to make disease-fighting fatty acids-and only has 5 grams of natural sugar per serving.
2-3 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
1/2 cup water (add more to facilitate blending)
A few drops of liquid stevia (you can try agave, too, but I’ve never used it in this pudding. I think stevia works best)
Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
Add any of your favorite toppings, maybe blueberries or raspberries or dried coconut. Delicious!
