Laundromats are depressing. Just sitting in a dingy, fluorescent-lit room with the din of washing and drying in the background. Plus, you’re stuck there FOR-EV-ER. I really miss having my own washer and dryer.

Something that isn’t depressing. This pie. It’s freaking delicious.

If you’ve never had chocolate pudding made out of avocado, then you’re missing out. I know it sounds odd, but you’ve just gotta commit to the idea. I promise you won’t regret it. Plus, you get to take advantage of the fact that avocado makes a great substitute for creamy dairy-based stuff. It doesn’t stop there either… this pie is chock full of other delicious and nutritious ingredients.

This whole recipe can be made raw. I used regular cocoa powder, but you can easily substitute cacao powder. You could also add superfoods like spirulina or maca powder.

As far as sweeteners, I used coconut nectar but you can use any liquid sweetener like raw honey or maple syrup.

Raw Chocolate Pudding Pie

1 1/2 c. raw cashews
1/2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes
salt

4 avocados
1/3 c. coconut nectar
7 medjool dates, soaked
1/3-1/2 c. cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
salt

  1. In a food processor, blend cashews, coconut, and salt until it forms a ball (should be the consistency of paste. ) This will take a while (five minutes or more). Scrape down the sides when needed.
  2. Press the cashew paste into a tart or pie plate.
  3. Clean out the processor and add dates, syrup, and vanilla. Blend until combined
  4. Add avocados, cocoa, and salt and process until smooth and creamy.
  5. Spread the pudding over the crust and chill or freeze until ready to serve.
  6. Garnish with berries, sliced banana, or toasted coconut flakes if desired.

    Loved the pie. I made a frozen banana cream to put on top. Worth the time to make for sure.
    Thank you

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
.
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
.
Be back later!
