Chocolate Power-House Pudding (by Natural Grocers)

While checking out at Natural Grocers the other day, my daughter picked up a recipe card that was near the register. The recipe caught her eye because it was for chocolate pudding. This was a great find on her part because the recipe only requires 6 whole-food ingredients and has a good mix of healthy fats and fiber. The recipe is gluten, nut and dairy free so enjoy!


Before I get to the recipe I want to give a recommendation for Thrive Market. I've been ordering products through them for several years now and couldn't be happier with the quality. In this recipe in particular, I used Thrive Market's house brand of raw organic honey and organic coconut oil.



Now for the recipe and thanks to Natural Grocers for providing a healthy dessert idea. All you need is a food processor or immersion blender and the following ingredients:


1 medium ripe organic banana

1 medium ripe organic avocado

1 tbsp organic honey

1/4 cup organic cocoa powder

1/4 cup organic coconut oil

1 tsp organic vanilla


Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides a couple of times to make sure all the ingredients are incorporated. Once the mixture is smooth it can be refrigerated and kept for 3 - 4 days. Depending on how much you eat, the above recipe will make 4 - 6 servings.


This is a calorie-dense treat and the approximate calorie and macro breakdown are listed below, based on 4 servings. Keep in mind that these are close estimates only, due to variations in sizes of the fruit you use.

That's it! My kids love it and really enjoy helping prepare it. I hope you enjoy it as much as they do!
