Avocado Chocolate Pudding with Lime and Collagen
By Amy Crawford
Say hello to avocado chocolate pudding, on steroids. Well, not steroids so much as collagen.
If you've not yet tried avocado chocolate mousse, please, jump on the bandwagon!
Not an avo lover? Doesn't matter. As long as you get the ratio of avo & cacao right you won't even notice it's there.
This very simple recipe comes with the added benefit of collagen. Why collagen? Because collagen is a building block that can reverse the signs of ageing, help you build muscle and fat, improve digestive health, reduce cellulite and ease joint pain. You'll find it in bone broth, powdered gelatin and in readily available collagen supplements. Whatever the case and for the aforementioned reasons, it's not a bad idea to squeeze a little extra into your diet where you can.
And that's where I come in with this chocolatey goodness..
2 big serves
2 large avocados (flesh equalling about 250g)
¼ cup cacao
¼ cup dark chocolate (melted)
4 tablespoons coconut milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Juice of ½ a lime
1 tablespoon collagen
¼ cup maple syrup
Pinch sea salt
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Spoon into two serving cups. Enjoy, and please, if you whip it up don't forget to report back and tell me what you think.
