Homemade: Chocolate Silk Pudding

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Did I mention how much I adore Valentine's Day? It's true, I'm kind of in love with this fabricated holiday. For those of you that have had your fill of shmoopie though, I have the perfect antidote. Chocolate! Oh yes, the pure, unadulterated love of all things cacao. In preparation for a dessert swap we're having at work this afternoon I whipped up one of my favorite treats. Prepare to be amazed. 

Chocolate Silk Pudding
(makes 4 servings)

1 ripe avocado
6 T. real maple syrup
1/4 c. cocoa powder (dark/light or a combination)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scooped out or 1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c. water + more if needed

Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. With a large spoon separate the inside of the avocado from the skin. Put the avocado in a blender and add the remaining ingredients. Blend until silky smooth. (If you like a thinner consistency add more water.) Chill for at least 1 hour. Garnish with berries and bananas. Viola! A decadent AND healthy chocolate dessert. Keeps for up to three days in the refrigerator.
