Everyone knows the trick of adding avocado to chocolate pudding, but I’m taking it one step further. Not only does this treat have a healthy secret ingredient, but it’s completely sweetened by fruit… and still tastes like dessert, not a salad!
The trick is to use banana and dates, the latter being pureed into a paste that yields not just sweetness but a nice, creamy texture. In the past I always just threw my dates into the food processor and tried to process them into oblivion, but both soaking and boiling them first really helps them soften and break down smoothly.
Make sure both your banana and avocado are nice and ripe and you’re good to go for this one! While it tastes great right when it’s made, you’ll be amazed how well it firms up after a few hours in the fridge. Try to be patient and it will be even better.
