Paleo Chocolate Pudding

 
The coconut oil in this recipe can boost the metabolism. Coconut oil has a thermogenic or calorie burning effect. This is because the medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil are easily absorbed by the energy producing organelles of the cells.  Studies have shown that after eating a meal containing medium chain triglycerides from coconut oil, the metabolism stays elevated for at least 24 hours!  Not only will you be burning calories at a faster rate, you will have more energy.

Ingredients:
2              avocado, ripe
1/2 cup    raw honey
2/3 cup    organic raw cocoa powder
2 tbs        coconut oil, soft
1 tsp        organic vanilla extract
pinch       gray or pink sea salt
1 tsp        maca powder (optional superfood boost. Not to be used by children.)
 
Direction:
1. Mash the avocados and then puree in a food processor. 
2. Add remaining ingredients and puree until smooth and creamy.

Hi,
this looks delicious :-) How long will it keep? I mostly just cook for myself, and I often miss info regarding how long it can be stored and can it be frozen? I generally think it's a waste of time to cook just one meal at a time...

It tastes great frozen! I wouldn't store it in the fridge for more than a couple of days so freezing would be best.

Cheers, Julie

You could probably make half a recipe at a time or share with a friend.
# Debbie Firmes 2013-06-08 00:17
Can't wait to try this...it looks heavenly! Going to buy the ingredients this weekend.
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-08 21:13
Enjoy!

:lol:
# Kathy Hall 2013-06-08 12:29
Yum frozen sounds great! I'm making a raw key lime tart today!
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-08 21:13
That is one of my favourites!

Cheers, Julie

I don't speak very mutch englich. Would't you bring out a version of your book en dutch, I am from Belgium (flanders)

thank you
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-10 19:40
Hello Monique,

Thank you for writing in! I have not heard any plans from my publisher Hay House to translate the book into Dutch. You could make an inquiry to them. Here is their email address.


Kind regards,
Julie

Made this tonight and LOVED it! Shared it with my hubby and he loved it, too. When I told him the ingredients, he couldn't believe it. I was lucky to come across the raw cocoa powder and Maca powder at our local farmer's market last weekend. Will be making this again!!
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-11 14:22
Wonderful!

So great to hear :-)

Cheers, Julie
# Guest 2013-06-11 08:23
Made this for my family. Added ginger powder and a little cinnamon and kids loved!! Thanks Julie for spreading the message that good food and good health can only be found in nature. Love ya!
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-11 14:23
Thanks Louise,

Those are great additions. My sister also puts a bit of peppermint oil in as well and it takes it to a whole new level.

Cheers, Julie
# Guest 2013-06-11 20:44
I made this over the weekend. I used coconut nectar instead of honey and it was delicious!! Thanks so much for this fantastic recipe, Julie!
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-11 21:52
Coconut nectar is a great choice!

Cheers, Julie
# Guest 2013-06-12 08:42
i made this last night, i used carob cuz i dont have any cocoa powder. OMG! sooo good! its to die for!
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-12 09:14
Good to know that carob substitutes well.

Cheers,
Julie
# Guest 2013-06-19 14:22
Hi Julie
Sounds like a great recipe, however please note that maca powder is oestrogenic, so it is best avoided by pre-menopausal women (as advised to me by Kathleen DesMaisons, author of Potatoes not Prozac).
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-19 18:42
Hi Yvonna,

Thanks for writing in!

I would like to know Kathleen's source of research as I have not seen any studies that show Maca to be oestrogenic.

Here is a study that demontates that Maca does not raise estrogen: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18784609

I works on balancing brain chemistry to reduce anxiety and depression and I have found it very useful with my pre-menopausal clients.

Cheers, Julie
# Guest 2013-06-22 19:53
Can Cacao powder be used as well? A friend made something similar and used it as a dip for fruit; its awesome with strawberries! They used raw Cacao powder tho.
Just bought your book and am looking forward to when I no longer suffer from abdominal pain and discomfort.
Thank you,
Elaina
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-22 20:45
HI Elaina,

Yes you can use cocao powder works as well.

Cheers, Julie
# Guest 2013-06-28 11:36
I absolutely LOVE avocado pudding, I've never liked the fake stuff.
I wonder if freezing in Popsicle moods will make it taste like fudgiscles, may have to try that idea!
:)
# Julie Daniluk 2013-06-28 19:35
Hi Megan,

That sounds like a great idea! I will be sure to try it. I bet they taste great because avocado and coconut freeze well.
Tell me how your experiment works out. :lol:

Cheers, Julie
# Kelly 2013-07-06 21:07
Oh WOW! I made this today and could have eaten the whole thing in one sitting! Even my husband agreed it tasted great. This is a keeper for sure. Great recipe to use when the avocados are getting too ripe.
# Julie Daniluk 2013-07-08 12:12
Thanks for the great feedback Kelly!

Cheers, Julie
# Noelle 2013-09-17 13:20
Hi Julie, I was doing a search on your website to see what your opinion on coco powder is as I can't find mention in MTHI as to whether or not it's suitable for the elimination phase. This sounds good, can't wait to try it.
# Julie Daniluk 2013-09-17 13:31
Hello Noelle,
I would suggest removing coco and raw cocoa powder during the elimination phase until you have determined it is not an issue for you. Many people can use it on their Anti-Inflammatory Live-It but there are some that find the caffeine to be an issue.
Cheers, Julie
# Sandra 2013-09-18 09:59
I love coconut oil, but a friend asked if it can be replaced by something else?
Thnx
# Julie Daniluk 2013-09-18 10:11
HI Sandra,
They could try substituting banana but it will not have the same consistency.
Cheers, Julie
# Litsa 2014-02-16 12:25
Okay so I FINALLY tried this and I may have just died and gone to heaven! Who knew that indulging in such a sinful treat could be so healthy! Now I have to go hide it so the kids don't eat it all! I will definitely be making this a regular in my kitchen, thanks Julie!!
# Julie Daniluk 2014-02-17 13:14
Great to hear Litsa!

It is a favourite in our house.

Cheers, Julie
# Shel 2014-05-07 14:00
Julie, might you have the nutritional information on this recipe? Thanks, if so. If not, I'll just calculate based upon the ingredients. Love all you do; I'm a big fan! All the best. :)
# Julie Daniluk 2015-10-05 08:05
Hello Shel,

I do not have the nutritional data on this as I have not calculated it. When most people are asking for the nutritional data they are looking for the calorie and sodium count. There are so many other nutrients that most nutritional data programs miss such as healthy fats and trace minerals.

Here is an article on why I don't regularly provide this info: https://juliedaniluk.com/food-facts/should-we-be-counting-calories.html?highlight=WyJjYWxvcmllcyJd

There's nothing better than Chocolate Avocado pudding, unless it's the popsicles made from the pudding! Love them. To make them even better, both the pudding and the popsicles, is to whip a little heavy cream and mix it in. YUM. Thanks, great recipe.
# Julie Daniluk 2015-10-05 08:06
Hi April,

Great to hear you are making the recipe your own.

For dairy allergies you might consider trying coconut cream.

Cheers! Julie
# Joanne 2015-10-04 21:00
Thanks so much for this fantastic recipe Julie! My daughter and I made it this evening and love it. We put a few frozen strawberries and it was delish! We found the consistency to be a little thicker than the photo is there a way to get it smooth?
# Julie Daniluk 2015-10-05 08:07
Hello Joanne,

The thickness will depend on the ripeness of the avocado. Try adding a little bit of coconut milk to alter the thickness.

Cheers, Julie

Hi Julie,
This recipe looks delicious. I am having trouble pureeing the ingredients together. I have tried a magic bullet as well as a blender and it isn't working. What do you use to make this recipe?
I really like your recipes and wanted to try this.
Thank you.
Laura
# Julie Daniluk 2015-10-05 16:42
Hi Laura,

Depending on how ripe your avocados are, it might be best to use a food processor. I us a Blend Tech blender and it is more powerful than most. A food pro will work better if you do not have a Blend Tech.

Cheers, Julie
# jennifer 2015-11-09 12:21
delish!!!! I've tried other variations.....just the right combination
# Julie Daniluk 2015-11-09 13:01
Wonderful to hear!

Cheers, Julie
# Jane 2016-12-27 00:23
The Paleo Chocolate Pudding looks delicious. I'm preparing more healthy desserts for my family. This is going to be great, healthy and wholesome chocolate pudding.
# Julie Daniluk 2016-12-27 16:01
Thanks Jane!

Cheers, Julie
