It’s Friday and I deserve a treat, and a chocolate pudding is just what I’m craving.
After all, I managed to get through the work week with a minimum of disasters, and I’m ready to celebrate the weekend to come.
While this isn’t what I’d consider a low calorie treat, if I’m going to indulge, I can feel better about this chocolaty delight.
The combination of ripe avocado, fat free Greek yogurt, and dark cocoa powder make this chocolate pudding recipe worth trying. Just a quick whirl in the blender and it comes out so creamy that you would never guess it wasn’t cooked on the stove.
Even better, I can feel good my indulgence since it contains a minimum of sugar and a good dose of healthy fat.
Still, it is as high in calories per 1/2 cup serving as ice cream. Most of us can’t fathom eating just 1/2 cup of any dessert, so I split the difference and had 3/4 of a cup. Each bite was worth every calorie.
Happy, healthy cooking!

- Combine ingredients in a blender and whip until it has a pudding consistency. I used my magic bullet.
