Who loves pudding?!?!? I do, my kids do, my husband does, my neighbors do, frankly I think everyone loves pudding! But commercial made puddings are full of additives and chemicals, so what is one to do! Make your own, it’s really quick and delicious.
It’s a great way to get your children to eat avocados! Avocados are great for your nerves, fatigue and they help control blood sugar levels. They are loaded with B vitamins, vitamin C and E, and contain minerals like calcium, sodium, folate, magnesium and zinc.
3 small ripe avocados or 2 large ripe avocados
1/3 cup cacao powder
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup maple syrup
Directions: Place all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth.
KID TIP: ** If this is your first time making this pudding and are worried the kids might not like the avocados, even if they’re hidden, make this recipe with 1 large banana and 1 large avocado, then as your children get used to it, switch over to the recipe above.
Lastly, this pudding is a great opportunity to add in powdered vitamins. The vitamin I have chosen for my children is Samuraw Organic Complete. What I do is simple, once the pudding is ready, I pour it into small cups and add a scoop of Samuraw Organic Complete into the pudding and mix the powder in well using a spoon.
What’s awesome about this? My children do not taste it at all and get all of the nutrients Samuraw Organic Complete provides! This leads to happy kids, happy mom!
