Have you ever tried to make something that is a variation of another recipe or an experiment with ingredients that sound good together but it doesn’t quite turn out the way you planned? Well, this is what I am now calling my Hodge Podge Pudding. It started out as a chocolate-avocado-coconut-almond banana milkshake but was a little to thick to drink through a straw :)
Here’s some pictures and what I did to create it. It actually was a pretty tasty treat.
1 frozen banana
8 oz unsweetened almond milk
5 pitted dates
2 Tablespoons cacao
2 Tablespoons almond butter (Yum…just made a batch of raw organic almond butter–nothing but almonds!)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
Place everything in Vitamix and blend away. As you can see from the first picture my “milkshake” was too thick to drink from a straw so I decided it was more of a pudding dessert and added a little coconut and some almonds on top.
It is rich, creamy, and decadent! What a yummy treat. It is packed with good fats and calcium and makes you feel like you should be eating it while hiding in a closet because it tastes too good to be good for you.
