Avocado Pudding

Just trust me on this one…

I saw the incomparably Martha Stewart on the Today Show last week showing off recipes and dishes from her new clean eating cook book. The last recipe was for chocolate pudding made with avocados….yes you read that right. And judging by the reactions of the co hosts, it was pretty awesome.

I tried to make it this weekend in secret so that I could pass it off to the kids as real pudding. I knew as soon as they saw the green goodness of the avocado, they would run away in terror. But I swear they know the sound of the drawer where the Cuisinart is kept and as soon as they hear it, they come running to help push the buttons. I told Baylor that the only way she was allowed to help was if she agreed to eat the final product. She reluctantly said yes and we proceeded to mix and sample and mix and sample until we got just the right combination of ingredients. When she finally got to sit down with a bowl, her reaction was priceless; “this IS pretty good!”

And this guy? The proof is in the pudding, er, picture.

The best part is that they get a guilt free dessert that is pretty close to a healthy food. Oh Martha, you’ve done it again!

        Hi Beth, I love your posts and find it ironic that I made the same recipe last week, right after I made the Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana recipe from the 12 Tomatoes website. The soup,was great but I altered the ingredients to decrease the calorie intake. After the soup, I offered Roy some chocolate pudding. He has eaten two helpings, likes it and I have yet to tell him how it is made…tee hee! Keep exploring in the kitchen and treating the family to new culinary delights!
