Well after looking at this picture close up, I think I need one of those fancy cameras (or a photographer) to make my food look as appetizing as the fancy pictures on other blogs. Anywho, I've been meaning to try this recipe for a while, ever since my buddy David from the gym emailed me asking what I thought of a chocolate pudding made out of.............Avocado! I wasn't sure what I thought of the idea until I actually tried it. It was freakin' good! You can't taste the avacado but it gives the pudding a really smooth texture. Even better news is that it only has four ingredients ( unless you add a dallop of home-made whipped cream on top like I did), in that case 5 ingredients. I shared this recipe with a friend who was over for dinner, who also decided to eat this pudding with an 88% dark chocolate "spoon" (aka used a big chunk of chocolate to scoop out the pudding).
I know you're probably thinking "whats up with this chick and mixing chocolate with wierd stuff lately", in my defense, I didn't create these recipes, I got ideas from other sites. So there are other strange foodies out there just like me! This recipe I got from Lisa's Paleo Nutrition Blog
