Yes, pudding for breakfast! When it’s made with avocado and banana, that is…

I will be honest that I could not sell this one to the girl, who likes neither of the aforementioned fruits, nor does she like chocolate! The boy, on the other hand, seemed to enj

oy watching all the crazy ingredients that went into something that ultimately tasted like a treat.

Today’s recipe is a riff on one of the smoothies I often make for myself and the boy. I’ve mentioned before that both frozen banana and avocado are healthy smoothie additions that serve a dual purpose: they add the perfect, creamy texture. I often throw 1/2 an avocado into a fruit-based smoothie and the girl is none the wiser for it! Even the taste of banana does not really come through when you are using other ingredients, and both yield a nicer texture than ice.

They key to this recipe is to have a really ripe avocado that will puree easily in your blender. The grocery gods were not looking out for me this weekend, so mine was a little bit too hard. As such just added a few more tbs. of milk to help everything get smooth.

I included both a tbs. of raw almond butter and Amazing Grass Kidz Chocolate Superfood powder**, both of which could easily be omitted.

Chocolate Breakfast Pudding

1 ripe avocado
1 banana
2-3 tbs. milk of choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
dash of cinnamon and salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbs. almond butter (optional)
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (optional)
4 tbs. cocoa powder

Combine all ingredients in blender and process until smooth.

 

 

**I don’t like to use the Amazing Grass every day as though organic it’s still soy-based. Another good way to add extra nutrition to your kids’ smoothies and a dish like this is hemp powders like Nutiva Organic products, which are free of most common allergens. Hemp is a great source of amino acids, omega3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and is an easily digestible source or protein.

Save Money on Event Planning

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that?
