Paleo Friendly Chocolate Pudding
So my husband and I have been on an anthropologically interesting culinary adventure the past week. Not that we're actually eating food prepared the way our ancient ancestors did in the Paleolithic Period. I don't believe earliest man was eating pulled pork wrapped in butter lettuce, roast over pureed parsnip, or paneed fillet of flounder. But we have been adhering to the oh-so-popular Paleo Diet, and guess what? -- It seems to work. After an initial shakiness which could only be attributed to the loss of fast carbohydrates and sugars in our diets, we feel really good! Already we're leaner and have lost a few pounds; though, honestly, neither of us really needs to lose weight (and probably won't lose much), but we'd like to better condition ourselves.
For me, who loves to bake, it's been challenging to stay away from the flour and sugar and cocoa powder. But last night, I made dessert for the first time this week and got my chocolate fix. Here's the super easy recipe for a paleo-friendly treat.
1 ripe avocado
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp raw honey
2 tbsp raw agave nectar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix it up.
