Do you remember when avocado pudding was all over the interwebs? I think avocados are still enjoying their time in the limelight, and with good reason. They are full of vitamins-- K, C, B6, E, and folate in particular. They are a good source of fiber, and really high in monounsaturated fat, which can reduce your risk of heart disease.
I found a recipe from The Pretty Bee, and I tweaked it to suit my taste. (I always try to use the least amount of sweetener possible, even when it is from fruit, honey, or maple syrup.)
Here are the ingredients:
3 T unsweetened cocoa powder
2 T pure maple syrup (You may want to add a bit more if you want it sweeter.)
1/4 C plus 1 Tablespoon milk of choice (I use unsweetened almond milk)
Throw ingredients in the blender and mix until creamy. You may need to play with the consistency-- add a little almond milk if it's too thick, or a little cocoa if it's too thin. Refrigerate it and serve chilled!
*Keep your servings small-- this little ramekin is probably two servings, and it is so rich I may spread it out even more. Fat is calorically dense, even if it is the healthy kind! You could even use it as a little chocolate dip for strawberries-- you could probably get 4 or 5 servings that way.
