Chocolate Avocado Pudding

09 July

You probably have this recipe already, but I like it so much, I am writing it again! Hope you enjoy it. It is a big hit with children, especially if they make it. Makes about 1 cup depending on the size of avocados.

1-2 ripe avocados, cut into chunks
½ cup chopped dates, soaked in warm water for about 1 hour ( you may want to use more dates depending on the thickness you want)
2½ teaspoons cocoa powder, or more to taste
¼ plus teaspoon vanilla (optional)
¼ ground cinnamon (optional)
1/8 teaspoon or less cayenne powder (optional)
¼ cup water plus 1/8 cup
sweetener of choice, to taste
1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1. Place all ingredients (except 1/8 cup water) in a food processor or blender. Process until well blended.
2. Taste and adjust flavors to your liking. Add the 1/8 cup extra water if needed to thin the pudding. Serve immediately or chilled topped with ground nuts, fruit, or toppings of your choice.
