There was this fabulous recipe maybe a year ago in the magazine for raw choco-nana pudding I think is what they called it.

 

I remember it was avocado, banana, coconut oil, and cocoa powder, don't remember if there was anything else or the amounts.  I remember my kids LOVED it and I really want to make it.....  Help!

I make LO this a lot lately, because he won't eat much and it has lots of yummy calories and nutrition. I don't measure, I just put one banana, one avocado, a shake of cocoa powder and a spoonful of honey, and add a little milk so I can use the blender. Tonight I added some vanilla coconut milk creamer for a flavor and richness. Sometimes I add cinnamon too.

I combined what the above two posters wrote and we LOVED it. I could easily get addicted. My 5.5 year old asked for more.

 

1 avocado

1 banana

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup liquid (I had coconut milk available)

 

Blend and eat.

 

I texted everyone about it and a couple people mentioned the ick factor of using avocado. I decided to recreate using a banana to replace the avocado so used a total of 2 bananas and no avocado and kept everything else the same. I thought it tasted the same (as did my son,) but it was runny, not pudding. I considered freezing it to see if it would make a good popsicle, but my son drank it instead.

 

This is definitely chocolate banana pudding, I wonder if it would be less bananay if you only used 1/2 banana as Elaynesmom stated.

we have started making a morning smoothie kind of like this but adding 1/4 or so of whole flax seeds (soaked overnight, DON'T SPROUT entirely, they're too bitter!  But just a little makes them gooey and activates the good enzymes)

 

the blender cuts them down a lot but it's still a little chunky, and it makes it so thick if you add enough, that it is more like pudding, you can eat it with a spoon.  My older kids like that.

 

yum

I always get Ah!laska organic cocoa powder. It's the only organic one I can find near me. It's WAY more delicious than Hershey's or something similar. I made this pudding the other day and froze it in popsicle molds. Holy wow.

The Ah!laska organic cocoa powder was too darn expensive, so I got the closest natural cocoa I could from Spouts, Chatfield's - All Natural Cocoa Powder, Unsweetened, Alkaline Free. Made this in my immersion blender. OMG. It was tasty. I don't think my avocado was ripe enough however-- but the texture was good. I did SundayCrepes version-- but thought it definitely needed more then a tbs of honey. But I admit to being a sweet tooth. I poured the rest in my toddler's IKEA popsicle molds. She's going to be a very happy kiddo tomorrow when I bring them out.

 

I tried not to eat too much when I realized how carb-laden it was. O_o

I'd like to pack this for DD's school lunch think it would be fine with an ice pack?
