Went dairy free or vegan and thought you would never again enjoy chocolate pudding? Well I did, until I discovered an abundance of vegan chocolate puddings using tofu or avocado. I decided to try it make it myself. I can’t remember where I saw adding banana to make a raw chocolate pudding. I was a bit worried how it would turn out. However it turned out really, really delicious! The banana, avocado, peanut butter and coconut oil really made it creamy and thick. The cacao, cinnamon and sweetener really helped give it that decadent chocolate taste. It had a mild taste of banana, but you would never know there was avocado in here. It was a bit hit with the family. Can’t wait to make it for the mini-Marcos.
