A while ago I shared a recipe for a dairy and gluten-free pudding.
What I love most about these is how great they are for those days when your kids will only eat a little bit of their dinner but can miraculously find room for dessert. I offer a pudding pop and they think they are getting a delicious dessert but in reality they are getting nutritious avocado, banana, fruit, chia seeds and almond milk. I see it as a win-win.
Basically just make this recipe of chocolate pudding:
1 ripe avacado
1/2 cup almond milk (I like vanilla but you can use unsweetened or even chocolate)
1/4 cup stevia or sugar
3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 frozen banana
1/4 cup frozen mixed berries
2 Tablespoons chia seeds
Peel and pit your avocado and place into a food processor (or blender). Add in the carob powder, vanilla, milk, sweetener, chia seeds and frozen fruit. Blend until smooth. You may need to add a little extra milk or fruit in order to get the consistency you like.
For the pudding pops, just pour pudding mixture into popsicle molds and freeze.
