Well, I've totally outdone myself with this chocolate pudding recipe... this is darn good!!1/2 of a ripe avocado (soft to touch)
approx 3 tablespoons of almond butter (preferably raw if possible)
approx 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
2 heaping tablespoons of organic cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 or 2 packets of stevia (or to your desired sweetness level)
1/2 to 3/4 of a scoop of chocolate protein powder (my new favorite is an amazing GRASS-FED whey protein I found here)
just a small pinch of salt
As you know, I always look for ways to make seemingly unhealthy foods into healthy fat-burning versions. Some popular recipes of mine in the past were when I made a truly healthy chocolate fudge, as well as my recipe for the worlds healthiest cheese steak.
But today, here's my recipe for an amazingly healthy, fat-burning chocolate pudding that's high in fiber, healthy fats, protein, and low in sugar, with ZERO artificial sweeteners and NO added sugars!
I know... I'm a freakin mad scientist with this stuff. But I actually got the idea for this recipe from Mens Fitness magazine... However, I changed it all around because I didn't like some of their ingredients, plus their recipe was too high in sugar in my opinion... and I added more protein.
Here's the Geary version of Healthy Fat-Burning Chocolate Pudding:
(This recipe will make about 2-3 servings and is a great healthy dessert or late night snack)
Put the avocado and almond butter into a bowl and mash together with a fork until smooth. Then add all of the other ingredients into the bowl and mix together vigorously until all is mixed and smooth.
If everything went right, the consistency will be similar to pudding... except normal pudding makes you fat with loads of sugar! My healthy pudding recipe will actually HELP you to burn fat, control cravings, and satisfy your body's need for micro-nutrients, protein, healthy fats, and fiber.
If the pudding ends up too thick, simply add a bit more almond milk or coconut milk for more moisture.
If you want to get a little wild and add some more nutrient-rich additions, feel free to add some chopped pecans, chia seeds, rice bran, or walnuts at the end.
Feel free to share this delicious healthy recipe with your friends and family!
Til next time,
Don't be lazy... be lean.
