avocado, meet chocolate

I am borderline obsessed with avocados. They look so pretty and taste delicious!

Since today is snowy and cold– school was already canceled by 7pm last night– I decided we would pass the time by playing in the kitchen! And because of my avocado obsession, I had a few on hand that we could whip into something tasty and fun. I’m a sucker for a good avocado smoothie, and I’ve seen chocolate paired with avocado before, initially I was thinking we’d make smoothies, but decided that was not snow-day-fun enough. Add a banana, or two, throw it all in the food processor and– voila— you’ve got chocolate pudding (and it’s vegan and dairy-free, if you’re into that).

Chocolate-Avocado-Banana Pudding (serves 2 – 4)

2 Ripe Avocados

2 Ripe Bananas

1/4 cup + 2 Tbl. Cocoa Powder

1 tsp. Cinnamon

1 tsp. Vanilla

3 Tbsp. Honey

3 Tbsp. Chocolate Syrup (we used high-fructose corn syrup free Nesquik)

Combine all ingredients in bowl of food processor, process until smooth and uniform in color. Chill until ready to serve. Enjoy!

      I think the banana makes it a bit sweeter, but I still had to sweeten it more with the honey and chocolate syrup.
