Creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Avocado Pudding

From naturalsweetrecipes.com

Ingredients

1 Large Ripe Avocado
1/3 cup Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup Agave
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup Almond Milk
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
Dash of Pink Salt
Optional: Liquid Stevia to taste

Directions

In a food processor or with a hand mixer, combine the ripe avocado and peanut butter until very smooth. Add the agave and mix well. Add the almond milk and cocoa powder. You can add a bit more almond milk or cocoa powder to reach your desired consistency. Mix until smooth. Add vanilla, salt and stevia if desired. The peanut butter makes this pudding a little less sweet and more rich than our other chocolate pudding recipe. If you have a strong sweet tooth, I recommend adding a few drops. Continue mixing the pudding until all ingredients are well combined and you have a perfectly creamy pudding. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or enjoy immediately!

Raw Thin Mint Brownies

From Chocolate-Covered Katie

Ingredients

  • 1 cup walnuts (120g)
  • 1 and 1/3 cups pitted dates (230 grams) (I highly recommend Sunmaid, because they’re softer.)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • A few drops pure peppermint extract (depending on how minty you want them… Start with less; you can always add more.)
  • Optional: for even more chocolate flavor, add chocolate chips. Or add cacao nibs.
  • Optional: tiny dash of salt (I always add this and recommend it.)

Directions

Combine all ingredients, using a food processor. (No need to blend the dates first; I just blend everything all at once. Form into brownies or balls or bars… or even cookie-cuttered shapes!

 

 

Fudgy Banana and Peanut Butter Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist

Ingredients

1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup liquid (water and/or milk of choice)
1 ripe banana
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 or 2 tbsp peanut butter
pinch of salt
Directions
  1. Bring 1 cup liquid to a boil, add 1/2 cup regular rolled oats, and reduce heat to medium. I also add a spoonful of milled flax at the same time as my oats.
  2. Mash up a ripe banana and add to the oatmeal. Stir.
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir. If it doesn’t look very chocolaty, add more cocoa powder.
  4. If you’d like to add any extra ingredients (coconut oil, dried fruit), do so now.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, drop in small clumps of peanut butter and stir in. I don’t like to stir mine in completely. I like it left in clumps so I get bursts of peanut butter flavor every few bites. 🙂
  6. Transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of your milk of choice and any other additional toppings (shredded coconut, nuts, etc.). I used part of a sliced banana, chocolate chips, and Reese’s pieces.

2 tbsp cocoa powder
pinch of salt
shredded coconut and sliced almonds for topping

  2. Mash up half an overripe banana thoroughly. Once it’s all perfectly mashed, add to the pot and stir.
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add a pinch of salt, two spoonfuls of cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s dark chocolate), and approximately 1/4 tsp. of almond extract.
  4. Stir, and watch your oatmeal transform into fudgy goodness.
  5. If you’d like to add any additional ingredients (coconut oil, sunflower seeds), do so now.
  6. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of coconut milk and sprinkle shredded coconut and sliced almonds on top. Delicious!

Healthy Shamrock Shakes

From Chocolate-Covered Katie

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen large banana, as ripe as possible
  • cacao nibs (or chocolate chips)
  • 2 drops pure peppermint extract
  • 2/3 cup milk of choice (For a super-rich shake, try full-fat canned coconut milk. Also, use more or less, depending on desired thickness.)
  • frozen spinach (I used about 1/4 cup) *If you can’t get on board with the greens-in-smoothies thing, you can opt for green food coloring (or just drink a white mint shake).
  • If, like me, you prefer smoothies in a bowl, add a pinch of xantham and guar gums to make pudding (or just reduce milk)
  • Of course, you can always add cocoa powder too

Directions

Blend everything together in your Vita-Mix or blender. (A convenient way to measure extract is to use an eye-dropper. You can buy them at stores like Sally Beauty, or recycle them off the tops of nunatural vanilla stevia drops.
