Not all fats are the same. Numerous studies show the health benefits of having unsaturated fatty acids (referred to as "good fats") in your diet. Avocado and coconut milk or cream are great examples of "good fats". Both are full of beneficial monounsaturated fats and their creamy texture make it so delicious. This recipe is perfect for when avocados are in season and inexpensive.
This pudding is incredibly nutritious yet not overly sweet. In fact, it's completely sugar-free! The natural sweetness of bananas, plus richness and creaminess of coconut and avocado make it a delicious, dessert-like snack. This yummy pudding is loaded with potassium and fiber to keep the digestive tract moving along as it should.
Cinnamon is one of my favourite spices. It's delicious in both sweet and savoury dishes and it's known to improve blood glucose level. It also helps to deal with cravings as it tricks mind to think that you have had something sweet. I love adding it in my cooking and this pudding isn't an exception.
And you guess what can make this pudding even better? Yeasss, you got it right - chocolate! The good news is - now you can raise sugar-free chocoholics A.K.A. your kids.

Only "Good Fats" Pudding
The natural sweetness of bananas, plus richness and creaminess of coconut and avocado make this dairy-free pudding a delicious, sugar-free dessert-like snack.
3 very ripe bananas, peeled
2 avocados, peeled and pitted
70g coconut milk
20g cocoa powder, unsweetened
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon, ground
Garnish (optional): fresh or frozen berries, fruits, granola, nuts, and seeds.
Place all ingredients into the bowl of the food processor. A stick blender will do the job as well.
Blend until a smooth. Use a spatula to help move things from the bottom to the top (make sure you turn off the food processor while you are doing it though).
Pour the pudding mixture into single-serve cups.
Transfer into the fridge to set for 2-3 hours or overnight if time allows. This pudding is best served cold.
