avocado pudding

avocado_pudding_1Shan and I have discussed posting “healthy” recipes since, well, December.  While we both enjoy indulgent dishes (which include things like butter), we are also well aware they are not kind to the waistline or our overall well being.  For me, eating healthy has almost always came naturally.  As a young child I often ordered salad over pizza and preferred fruits and vegetables over processed snacks.  With being pregnant however, my sweet tooth has been in overdrive.  Constantly finding myself scavenging for sugar I needed a satisfying option that does not include a million calories.  This pudding fits the bill in more ways than one.  It is the perfect amount of sweet wrapped up in a luxurious creamy texture.  Avocado for dessert?  Yes please.

avocado_pudding_2This dish is very adjustable to taste.  If you prefer things on the sweeter side add more honey.  Want more flavor?  Add coconut extract or additional vanilla.

avocado_pudding_4Clearly avocados are not just for guacamole.  After trying this pudding I am thinking pie – key lime pie to be precise.  The hunt is on…

    My mum used to make avocado pudding back in the late 80s – SO easy! Just mash up half an avocado and a banana and you’re done! I like your recipe though and might have to give mum’s recipe a makeover with the things you use!
