Chocolate Avocado Chia Pudding

Here's a way to make a dessert-for-breakfast that's actually healthy

There’s no harm in having a little chocolate in the morning, especially if it’s blended with potassium- and fiber-rich avocado and banana. But, honestly, there are some mornings we’d hand the kids jujubes if it meant they’d put on their shoes faster—Laura Keogh, author of The School Year Survival Cookbook

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados
  • 1 banana
  • 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 Cup chia seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 salt
  • a pinch of ground cinnamon

Directions

In a blender, place avocados, banana, chia seeds, cocoa, maple syrup, salt and cinnamon. Blend until smooth.

Scoop pudding into two bowls and serve or scoop into glass containers, cover and refrigerate overnight.
