The REAL No-Guilt Chocolate Pudding

Rated as 3.75 out of 5 Stars

"In my journey to applying the 90/10 (okay 80/20) rule to my food ethic – that is, 90 percent good for you and 10 percent … not so much – I'm always on a quest to find dessert holy grails. If I'm going to indulge in dessert, it better be good. Medjool dates, by themselves, no matter how exponentially sweet, are not going to cut it when I want something velvety, chocolatey and rich."

Definitely an alternative to milk based puddings! This is better cold than at room temperature, and it has the consistency you expect in a pudding. The combination of avocado and chocolate lea...

I love this stuff! Have made it 3 times, now.

SO rich, it's hard to believe this yummy dessert is made with avocado. I made our version low-carb by substituting Splenda and sugar free maple. It tastes perfect and was a snap in the food proc...
