Raw Chocolate Pudding

This is a delicious and unique (not the mention healthy!) recipe. It was very simple to make...the only time involved is soaking the dates. Try this straight off the spatula or frozen. There is another version here (it's a little more gourmet...but Renee is one of my favorite I had to mention it!). No photo'll just have to make it yourself! Yum!

Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People
by Jennifer Cornbleet

Yeld: 1 cup, 2 servings

1/4 c. pitted medjool dates, soaked*
1/4 c. pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. mashed avocados (1 1/2 avocados)
1/4 c. plus 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa or carob powder
1/4 c. water

Place the dates, maple syrup, and vanilla in a food processor fitted
with an S blade and process until smooth. Add the avocado and cocoa
powder and process until creamy. Stop occasionally to scrape down
the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the water and
process briefly. Stored in a sealed container, it will keep for
three days in the refrigerator, or two weeks in the freezer. Serve
chilled or at room temp.


Increase amounts to 1/2 c. dates, soaked, 1/2 c. maple syrup, 1 tsp.
vanilla extract, 1/2 c. mashed avos (3 avos). 3/4 c. cocoa powder,
and 1/2 c. water. Yield: 2 cups, 4 servings.
