I don’t know why when I think of spring I immediately think of chocolate and desserts. Maybe it’s because Easter is on the horizon and that means hunting down little plastic eggs filled with miniature chocolate animals and a big family dinner where there’s always some kind of battle of the desserts between two people (usually one of them is me.) So if anyone else is a Spring-dessert-aholic here’s a quick, easy and fun CBD recipe for you to take to your own dessert battle.
Salted Chocolate Pudding Bowls
I got the originally recipe which I then tweaked from one of my favorite blogs, Oh How She Glows. You can find her entire recipe here https://ohsheglows.com/2016/05/04/salted-chocolate-avocado-pudding-bowls/
For the pudding:
- 3/4 cup packed avocado (from 1 medium avocado)*
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup**
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon natural smooth roasted almond butter
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt, or to taste
- 3 droppers of Pure Hemp Botanicals Tincture of your choice
Optional Toppings For serving:
- Coconut Whipped Cream
- Fresh berries
- Finely chopped almonds or other nuts
- Add the avocado, cocoa powder, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, melted coconut oil, milk, almond butter, vanilla, Pure Hemp Botanicals Tincture and salt (start with 1/4 teaspoon) into a food processor. Process until super smooth, stopping to scrape down the side of the bowl as needed.
- Taste and adjust salt and sweetener, if desired.
- Spoon into an airtight container, cover, and chill for 1 to 2 hours, or simply enjoy immediately at room temperature.
- Portion into shallow bowls and top with Coconut Whipped Cream, fresh berries, and nuts.
- Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 to 2 days. I prefer the flavor when enjoyed the same day, but it’s still good the next day too!
- * Make sure the avocado you use is ripe, but still fresh and without bruises. Bruises can result in a pudding that’s bitter or off-tasting.
- ** Brown rice syrup thickens this pudding while providing a light sweetness that pairs well with the maple.
