My bag of tricks
Oh that? That's just a little avocado-chocolate pudding.
No, it's not gross. It's high in heart-healthy fats, calories, and it's a great source of fiber, potassium and various vitamins. And it's all cleverly disguised behind a cocoa flavor and mixed with some fresh honey from Nana and Granddaddy's beehive.
Don't feel sorry for my picky little eater. If he'd eat well on his own, I wouldn't have to sneak avocados into his desserts. We do what we have to around here.
Avocado Chocolate Pudding
Makes about 1/2 cup
2 ripe avocados, peeled and chopped
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Serve chilled. And don't, under any circumstances, tell them what's in it.
