Good fats are necessary for your health.  Do not be afraid!  Your body needs good fats to work properly and create healthy cells to keep you feeling fabulous.  We are NOT talking about your basic junk chocolate you find in the candy aisle loaded with sugar and chemicals. Good fats are those found in avocados, olive oil, nuts and seeds.

Chocolate chips being measured out

In a small bowl, place the chocolate chips with 1 T water.

Microwave for about 20 seconds to melt, give it a good stir to cream the chocolate.

(You can also melt the chocolate on the stove top in a double boiler.)

 

Mixing up gluten-free chocolate pudding

Combine the creamed avocado, melted chocolate chips, cacao powder, vanilla and agave/maple syrup.  Either add everything into a bowl to mix by hand, or add all ingredients into the food processor. With the latter, you’ll need to stop and mix as you blend.

Completely blend together.  Slowly add the milk.  A little less milk will create a thicker pudding, much like a mousse.  More milk gives a creamier pudding.  Mix until well blended.

 

Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour before enjoying!

 

Scoop into pretty bowls.

Top with berries, shredded coconut or cacao nibs.

Enjoy!
