Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

1 ripe avocado
1/2 frozen banana (peeled and sliced before freezing) I keep them in a Ziploc bag in the freezer.
2/3 teaspoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon stevia powder
1/3-1/2 cup coconut milk. (The less milk, the thicker the pudding).

Place avocado, banana, cocoa powder, stevia powder, and milk into blender and mix. Now you have a yummy delicious chocolate avocado pudding.

Tip: You can add protein powder or other powdered and liquid supplements to the chocolate avocado pudding and it will mask the taste.

As a side note, I’ve published a new 366 day devotional book entitled Looking Deeper. It’s available in paperback and e-reader. Check it out here. 41KS+aVzQrL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_
