I think store-bought pudding tastes like plastic.
But we can agree about one thing: processed pudding is full of junk that makes us fat and sick.
So Alyson and I decided to whip up a chocolate pudding recipe with 100% real food ingredients. After a few weeks of tinkering, one particular pudding creation blew our minds.
We put our real-food pudding recipe to the test on ABC’s My Diet TV show.
In case you missed the Wild Dessert Party with Kurt’s family and friends, this recipe put the store-bought desserts to shame. “This pudding is rich, creamy, and so yummy… Does it really have avocado in it?” one guest chirped.
Yes indeed! You don’t have to give up treats with The Wild Diet. Delicious desserts are a part of enjoying life. Making treats with real food will help you satisfy cravings without sacrificing your fat loss results.
This chocolate pudding recipe combines nutrient-dense fats from coconut and avocado with the antioxidant power of cacao. The subtle sweetness comes from organic 100% maple syrup and stevia leaf. Unlike the empty calories in sugar and corn syrup, maple syrup contains 54 different antioxidants and boasts high levels of zinc and manganese, which contribute to a healthy heart and immune system (in moderation, of course).
Remember, just a dab will do ya. 1 tablespoon of maple syrup has 14 grams of sugar, making this pudding a higher glycemic treat than most Wild recipes. It’s a great option for a post-workout treat, or as a “gateway real food dessert” that’s sweet enough for the Standard American Palate. 🙂
To reduce the glycemic load of this recipe, simply cut down on the maple syrup and add a touch more stevia, to taste.
Pro tip: since it’s made with real avocado, plan to eat this pudding the same day you make it for best flavor.
