Healthy Pudding??

Healthy Pudding

Jackie’s Tips: 

The amazing thing about this pudding is that you can’t taste the avocado at all!  The consistency is just like pudding, and the flavor is great! 

I use one frozen banana because we like to eat this immediately and the frozen banana makes it really cold and ready to eat.  You can also use 2 ripe bananas and then refrigerate the pudding for a couple of hours and it works just as well.

Have you looked at the ingredients on a box of pudding from the store lately?  Below is a typical ingredient list for processed pudding bought at the store. There are so many things wrong with the list below that I wouldn’t know where to start, but I think as a society we have to do better about what we put into our bodies.

 

Ingredient Listing for Store Bought Pudding: Nonfat Milk, Water, Sugar, Modified Corn Starch, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, less than 2% of: Cocoa (Processed with Alkali), Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Yellow 5, Yellow 6.

Instructions

  • 1. Assemble ingredients
  • 2. Put all ingredients into a powerful blender such as a Vitamix and blend. You will need to stop blender and push ingredients to the bottom of the blender and start again. You might need to do this a couple of times. You want a really creamy consistency.
  • 3. Scoop into small bowls and enjoy. I top with chopped pistachios, but you could also use peanuts or cashews for a little crunch.
  • 4. You may want to refrigerate for a couple of hours, but if you use the frozen banana there is no need to.
