Whenever we eat avocados, the kids make horrible faces, turn their noses up in disgust and say, “ewwww.” I always tell them that they can’t really say that they don’t like something until they try it, but this is one thing that they refuse to give a go.
Today I actually got the girls to eat (and enjoy) avocados!
The best part is that they have no idea that they ate an avocado because it was ever so deliciously disguised as creamy chocolate pudding!
Hehehe. Sneaky mom, I know.
Creamy Chocolate Pudding
Makes four 1/2 cup servings
- 2 large ripe avocados
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. Spoon the flesh of the avocados into a food processor.
Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, milk and vanilla.
Blend on high until combined and smooth.
Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or serve as is. We added sliced banana to ours.
They love this pudding so much that I am debating whether or not to tell them that it is made from avocados. I think that I will just keep it my delicious little secret.
