I like to think that I'm honest about my vegetable dessert experiments that don't quite work. The green ice cream I made with spinach? Probably not for everyone. That (best forgotten) chocolate mint fudge with cauliflower? Clearly a disaster.
As for this chocolate pudding, though? Trust me when I say it's a vegetable containing dessert that you want to embrace.
This recipe is what happens when you have a vague desire for a kale-containing green smoothie, you realise you have an avocado on hand to use up, and then you want a kale-containing green smoothie and chocolate avocado mousse.
It's what happens when you embrace the modern woman's motto of "I can have it all", and you decide to have a kale-containing green smoothie and chocolate avocado mousse and to have them together.
And, it's what happens when you put fruit and vegetables (and cocoa!) into your food processor and magic takes over.
I recommend the outcome as a blissful mix of delicious taste and whole food nutrition.
Serves 1 - 2
Food processor or high speed blender required.
Vegan, raw, and happiness inspiring.
Honestly not quite the same as any of my previous chocolate avocado puddings!
1 medium banana, frozen (non-frozen would be fine but the pudding won't be as creamy)
Flesh from 1/2 medium or 1 small avocado
~1/3 cup strawberries, hulls removed
~1/3 cup kale, chopped (you can't taste it in the pudding, I promise)
2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder (raw if desired)
Put everything in a food processor, and process. Serve immediately or allow to chill in the refrigerator first.
