Healthy 5 Min Chocolate Pudding and Green Tea version (Vegan, paleo, Dairy Free No sugar added)



I have a new love, and no I'm not cheating on my husband.  It's chocolate pudding.  But not just any chocolate pudding, healthy chocolate pudding that only takes 2 min to make.  Now I know your understanding my current addiction.  Healthy chocolate pudding in 2 min? Thank god it's healthy! 
 I have been having this for breakfast some mournings in place of my mourning green smoothie. That's what I'm talking about chocolate pudding for breakfast!  This would be a great way to get kids to have fruits and veggies and healthy fats as an after school snack, or just as a healthy dessert for your whole family.  It seriously tastes just like instant chocolate pudding and is just as easy to make.  I really like this recipe just as is, but if you do make this recipe and find it to not taste sweet or chocolaty enough for you I would suggest adding in 1/4 cup of melted dark chocolate chips.  It still will have a lot less sugar than any boxed pudding and with extra nutrition.  I haven't tried it yet, but I bet these would also make great pudding pops if you freezed them!  I've been having this so often I started experimenting with different flavours.  So far I'm really liking my green tea version (included below).  An added bonus is that green tea has great health benefits and helps you lose weight. 


 
5 Min Chocolate Pudding (serves 2)
Ingredients
1 large ripe to over ripe banana (if your banana is not ripe here is a quick fix)
1 large ripe avocado
1/4 cup raw cocao powder (or cocoa powder)
2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons stevia
1/2 -2/3 cup (depending on how thin or thick you want it) favourite milk alternative (I used homemade cashew milk)
1/2 tsp pink salt   why pink salt? (optional)
Directions
Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth, and serve! 

Note: If your pudding is to thin for you it can easily be fixed by adding 1 tsp organic (so that it's not GMO) cornstarch or tapioca starch, if it's still not thick enough add a little more.
