Wow. I should not be allowed to take pictures of my food. Really. Sorry for that unappetizing image. Read the recipe instead and then make up a beautiful picture in your head. Yeah, that picture, that’s what should be right above.
So I know there are a million and one recipes for chocolate avocado pudding out there but I’ve actually never made it before and I had a very ripe avocado that needed to be used. So deal with it. And love it. Plus I wanted a snack and nothing in my fridge looked good and for some reason the chocolate bar wasn’t appealing… I wanted creamy and cold.
1 ripe avocado
1 very ripe banana
scant 1/4 cup cocoa powder
~1 tbs. honey or agave or maple syrup (more if desired)
1. tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup milk of choice (almond, coconut, etc) (add only part at first then more if need)
1 tbs. creamy sunflower seed butter or almond butter
pinch of salt
Mix everything together in a blender. I don’t have a blender so I did it by hand. That sucked. Don’t do it that way. Use a blender. Find one! It’s creamier and more delicious that way. There aren’t weird chunks of non-chocolatey avocado.
My pudding is better then every other recipe because I had sunflower seed (or almond) butter. That makes everything better. Just add it to everything. Something doesn’t taste right? Sunflower/almond butter. THAT is what makes the world go round.
OH, So since we had a little heart to heart about exercising yesterday, I thought I would post the workout I did today. I did a circuit workout which actually kicked my butt even though it may not look super hard to start out. I put my boot camp class through it, too!
You should all write this workout down and go do it now (cough AMMIE cough)
Perform 10 reps of each exercise resting one minute at the end of the circuit before repeating two more times (for a total of 3 rounds)
deadlift to row
pushup to opposite hand/toe touch (do a pushup then lift your right leg and reach it under your body to touch your left hand… yes you will be balancing on just your right hand and left leg)
squat to curl and press
reverse lunge with lateral raise
medicine ball wood chop
jump rope for 1 minute
