Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free, Paleo/Vegan Chocolate Pudding:

paleo choc puddingCommercial, boxed chocolate pudding from the grocery store is loaded with sugar, artificial ingredients, preservatives, and colors or dyes. For parents who have kids that are dealing with ADD/ADHD, autism, or any other learning disability or personality/mood disorder, avoiding these ingredients should be a top priority. However, denying your child the enjoyment of an occasional treat is something that most parents do not want to do. Chocolate pudding is often times regarded as a childhood favorite by many. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be off the menu completely, because it is possible to make it at home from healthy ingredients that won’t aggravate your child’s condition! Feel free to play around with the ratios for this recipe based on personal preferences for sweetness, texture, and chocolatey goodness!

 

Ingredients:

*1 large, very ripe avocado

*1/2 cup non-dairy milk, such as coconut or almond (if you eat dairy, you can also use raw milk. For a probiotic boost, you can also substitute plain, vanilla, or a fruit yogurt as well)

*1/4 cup raw, organic cocoa powder

*3 tablespoons honey, and/or a few drops of liquid stevia to taste

*1-2 teaspoons alcohol-free vanilla flavor

*a pinch of himalayan or celtic sea salt

Method:

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Feel free to add more milk, cocoa powder, or sweetener to personal preferences. Top with chopped strawberries, almonds, coconut flakes, or any other fruit, nut, or seed for extra oomph!

**To make these into kid-friendly fudge pops, simply double the recipes and pour into popsicle molds, and freeze in the freezer for at least 4-6 hours. Enjoy!
