I got this recipe from a girl named Elke Kasanda http://energychef.com/. She came to do a presentation on raw food at my school one day and this is what she made. There was only enough for each of us to try a little bite. It was like heaven when I put it in my mouth. How could something this healthy taste this rich and yummy? It was like Heaven. I had to get the recipe to make more because one bite wasn't going to cut it. Everyone at the workshop agreed that it was decadent. She could have made 10 batches and we still would have licked the plates at the end to get every last bite.
This recipe is so healthy I have even let my kids eat it for breakfast! It's full of good fats to keep them full until snack time and these same healthy fats provide them with brain food. Of course, it's more of a treat but I can assure you it's way healthier than every single one of the conventional breakfast cereals marketed as kids breakfast food. Reese's peanut butter puffs??? C'mon!
Anyway, here it is:
Raw Vegan Chocolate Pudding
8 Medjool dates pitted and soaked in filtered water for at least 30 minutes
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 medium sized avocadoes
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup filtered water
Place all ingredients in food processor and puree until smooth and creamy. Serve and enjoy.
