Grain Free Foodies has begun to post some transitional recipes for those who are transitioning off or onto the GAPS diet. Chocolate is considered a transitional food for the GAPS diet. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride has recently approved chocolate if you have had significant healing in your gut.
When I saw the Chocolate Avocado Pudding recipe at Grain Free Foodies I had to try it.

Lucky me, the discount foods place where I shop had large avocados 25 cents each. They were very (almost overly) ripe and kind of dented like they had been smashed a bit in transit, but I thought they would be okay. I gambled with two dollars and bought eight. I am getting so much better at taking care of groceries. I used to be too tired to bother, and so I would not have considered buying eight because I knew they had to be processed tonight.
So tonight was the night to try the Chocolate Avocado Pudding.
It looks EXACTLY like pudding. The taste is very smooth. I did not taste avocado at all. I had my oldest son try it, but I don't think he liked it too much. It was very rich, and I thought it was delicious. Very rich and decadent tasting. I used cacao powder instead of cocoa powder [affiliate link].
I bought this Wilton Tasty Fill Set of 4 Mini Cake Pan Set a couple of months ago when I was on a mission to be able to make one or two serving desserts for myself so I wouldn't eat an entire batch. I have been trying to figure out what I could use for a filling for the middle, and I think this chocolate pudding would work wonderfully!
I also think this pudding would freeze up nicely into ice cream.
I am curious to see what it looks like tomorrow. I wonder if it will become darker since avocado usually darkens overnight. It was so rich tasting I could only eat about 1/2 a cup. That's definitely a plus!
Thank you Grain Free Foodies!
