Divinely Decadent Avocado Pudding

Sometimes I need to force my way through ease, like a bungling klutz, alcoholic binging set aside. When my body seizes up from the winter’s brazen rawness, I seek comfort. Sometimes in all the wrong places. But solace comes in many shapes and sizes. And today, I turned to my VitaMix. I craved something stimulating, rich, carnal and velvety smooth. So with that image in mind, I checked through my food pantry and immediately pounced on my stock of overripe avocados (bonus buy @ 99¢ for 6). Such a luscious place to start! I dreamed up a raw chocolate-y heavenly treat, that came more from instinct than recipe.

Et voila! Here below lies a recipe of gorgeous comfort that fulfills the gap of ease that has been missing from my day. I really hope you enjoy this yummy concoction. PLEASE experiment with your own sexy ingredients! And take pictures along the way :).

BTW, Valentine’s Day is coming up. This naughty decadence is a perfect ensemble for your special someone and day / evening / event planned. Make this concoction a two-way preparatory invitation to luscious fun. If you’re going solo, you get to enjoy this blissful naughtiness all.to.yourself. ENJOY!

Divinely Decadent Avocado PuddingDivinely Decadent Avocado Pudding (veGAN = Bonus!)

Succulent Vegan Ingredients:

  • 6 ripe avocados
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup organic apple sauce (recipe made in Vitamix with organic russet apple – no sugar or water; 100% pure apple)
  • 13 prunes soaked in boiling water (left to cool to room temperature). Dates may give this a different taste, consistency and sweetness. Prunes is what I had. And they worked beautifully in community with the other ingredients.
  • 1/8 cup raw cacao nibs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 fruit juice (I used 100% passionfruit)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons organic sugar ~ (this can be excluded if you prefer less sweet). Honey, coconut or brown sugar could be used instead.
  • 1/4 cup boiling water (used to dissolve sweetener of choice) + prune soak water
  • pinch of himalayan salt

Experimental Toppings:

  • Chopped pistachios, cashews or walnuts
  • Dehydrated pineapple slices
  • Sea Salt
  • Fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, bananas
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Shredded coconut
  • Coconut cream
  • Chocolate nibs
  • Chocolate covered toffee bites
  • Chocolate covered coffee beans
  • Anything else chocolate that you can handle or desire

Spinny Directions:

  1. Add ingredients to a VitaMix (a blender or food processor will suffice if you’re not lucky enough to own said VitaMix … go here to buy one if you’re interested! :)) in the order of ingredients as listed above.
  2. Twirl until smooth and lusciously irresistible (I’d say about 2-3 minutes). Use the tamper if you’re using the VitaMix.
  3. Add any additional liquid of choice until the avocado bliss pudding is the consistency you desire. If it’s a little thinner than desired, that’s okay. The more quantity, the merrier! The pudding will thicken up once it’s chilled in the refrigerator.
  4. Spoon into beautiful bowls, cover and chill (IF you can resist it that long).
  5. Take fingers or spatula and lick out entire mixing container.
  6. Be forewarned:  this pudding is a high-fat, high-calorie, highly addictive dessert. It will serve about 4 people (or good 4 body-painting for 2 >> make less thin, and skip the chilling).

VitaMix YumminessNow that’s what I call  delicious ease, grace and divinity with a creative twist!

What’s your definition of ease when life dips below the tolerable line, and much-needed simplicity and comfort is desired in your life?

 

PS. For those that don’t know me, I often speak metaphorically when I write — I couldn’t alcoholic binge if I tried :). I am, however, at times, a bumbling oaf.
