Here’s an easy version of a pudding–no cooking! You will need a food processor though. If you are trying to incorporate more coconut oil into your diet this is a good choice. The ghee adds a buttery flavor but you can substitute all coconut oil if desired. Be sure to use organic raw cocoa powder to get the maximum amount of the phytonutrients that chocolate provides. If you wish to make a lower carb version, try stevia or monk fruit instead of the honey. This is very rich and is best served with some fresh berries.
1 perfectly ripe avocado–slightly soft so it scoops out easily but not brown or bruised inside
1 ripe banana
3 Tbsp. raw organic cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
2 Tbsp. ghee or another 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/4 cup organic canned coconut milk (the full fat or classic that comes in a can)
Melt the ghee in a small bowl. Add the coconut oil and warm just enough that both are liquid and set aside. Half the avocado and remove the pit. Scoop out the avocado and place in the food processor. Add the banana, honey, cocoa powder,coconut milk, and vanilla. Process until smooth and homogeneous. While the processor is running slowly pour in the oil. Process until thoroughly mixed. Taste and correct sweetness by adding more honey if desired. Serve with fresh strawberries, raspberries or blueberries. The pudding will thicken more when it is chilled. Keep refrigerated..
