Before finishing off the last of this delicious chocolate lemon pudding, I decided it was best to snap a picture so I could share the recipe. If you like chocolate with a hint of lemon, you are in for a treat! I bet subbing for lime would taste devine as well, and I thought my mint chocolate mousse was a hit. Little E gobbled it all down and made quite the mess. It is so easy and simple to prepare, and tastes much better than any store bought processed pudding I have tried. Not to toot my own horn or anything.
And, you can easily half the recipe if you think it will be too much. I personally found this amount to be perfect. We all had some after dinner and there was just enough left for me the next day.

Chocolate Lemon Pudding
Yields 4-5 cups
- 2 avocados
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup of liquid sweetener of choice- honey, agave, maple syrup or coconut syrup. (I haven’t tried it with date paste, but I am sure that could be used in place of the liquid sweetener.
- 1 1/2 cups of raw cacao powder or sub with carob powder
- 2/3 cup of fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp or more of lemon extract
- Place all the ingredients in a high powered blender (a food processor would work) and incorporate until smoothie.
- Once blended, place in a sealed container in your fridge for 30 minutes to let the flavors blend.
- Keeps for up to 3 or 4 days in the fridge, that is if it lasts that long. [/print_this]
