This pudding will surprise you how deliciously rich it is. I had Girl Scout cookies as one option for dessert tonight, and I opted for this! Works best with a high power blender or food processor. Made me want to invest in a good blender. Makes 2-3 servings. Double for more.
Three ingredients, three easy steps:
- 1-2 ripe avocado
- 5-7 pitted dates
- 1-2 Tbs.carob powder
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup water
1. The night or morning before, soak the dates in enough water to cover them. This will soften them and make a sweet syrup.
2. Blend avocados, soaked dates and liquid together until smooth. Add more water as needed to get a thick, creamy consistency.
3. Add carob and blend again. Serve chilled.
Make a small batch first to play around with getting the right amount of avocado for creaminess and dates for sweetness.
