Making the Perfect Avocado Pudding

 Chocolate Avocado Pudding with Coconut Milk

 

The perfect avocado pudding is not some sort of sweet guacamole…but a sweet, rich and decadent creamy pudding.

The perfect avocado pudding is a great, delicious and good-looking dessert that you will be proud of serving because it is actually chock-full of healthy ingredients—banana for sweetening…lots of cocoa for a rich chocolaty taste…whipped coconut milk for airy texture and more sweetness…and finally avocado simply serves to bind all of the other ingredients together and provide creaminess.

 

  • 2 ripe medium avocados
  • 1/3C cocoa or carob powder
  • 1/4C coconut milk
  • 2tsp vanilla
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Toppings of choice…such as strawberries, coconut flakes, cherries, raspberries

Add the peeled avocados, banana, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Blend until a creamy paste forms. Set aside. Whip the coconut milk with a hand mixer until it obtains a mousse-like texture. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving.

 

August Dessert of the Month—The Poke Cake — August 16, 2017

August Dessert of the Month—The Poke Cake

  
Poke Cake is more of a process than an actual recipe…and there are as many different variations of Poke Cake as there are…

(Different flavors of cake mix) x (Different flavors of Jello or instant pudding…

Betty Crocker makes 27 different flavors of SuperMoist cake mix…Jello makes about thirty different flavors of pudding…that alone makes for 810 possibilities…
So how do you make a Poke Cake…

  • 1.  Bake a normal cake, either from a mix or from scratch.
  • 2.  Poke holes in the top with some object, such as the base of a wooden spoon.
  • 3.  Pour sweetened condensed milk, pudding, or jello over the holes…(this allows the liquid to seep into the cake and makes it moist and flavorful).
  • 4.  Refrigerate the cake for a few hours so that the liquid has absorbs into the cake.
  • 5.  Top with Cool Whip and other optional toppings such as caramel syrup, nuts, candy bits,  and fruit.

Making this cake actually doesn’t involve a recipe…it’s more like creating a ice cream sundae…but better…
