Thanks to Felix Chen for posting this little recipe from Lisa’s Nutrition Blog on Facebook.  It caught my eye!

Paleo Chocolate Pudding

1 Large Very Ripe Avocado (Lisa used 2 smallish ones)
1 Large Ripe Banana
3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1-2 Tbsp Honey

Cut avocado in half and scoop into food processor. Peel the banana and break into small chunks, place in food processor. Add the cocoa powder and honey, blend until it has the consistency of pudding. Pour into 2 custard dishes and enjoy with a friend. If you decide to refrigerate the other half, place plastic wrap over dish so that it touches the pudding. This will prevent a layer of “skin” from forming over your pudding.

Lisa Says:  “I know it sounds strange and unappetizing, but you really should try it before you pass judgment. It tastes a little different than your usual chocolate pudding but in a really good way. One of the things I really like about paleo deserts is that they do not leave me feeling full, queasy, or sleepy like I do after eating regular deserts that are either too sweet or too rich. This pudding is the same. It satisfied my chocolate/sweet tooth without any negative after effects.”

After?  Chocolatey goodness!
