Healthy Chocolate Pudding

Healthy Chocolate Pudding

We all have that one friend or sister that is absolutely obsessed with chocolate. If you don’t know that person, then it’s probably you. This recipe is so delicious AND you can have it done in less than 15 minutes! It’s quick, simple, and healthy. And I promise you, no one will be able to tell the difference.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

1- 1 avocado

2- 1 banana

3- 4 tablespoons of raw cocoa powder

4- 3 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey

5- 3 tablespoons of coconut oil

6- A pinch of sea salt

HOW TO GET IT DONE, SON:

This is dead simple. Are you ready?

Just grab all your ingredients, throw them in a blender and blitz. Tada! You’re done! No really, you’re done.

I’d recommend refrigerating it for at least an hour before eating. This recipe is so versatile you can top it with whatever you’ve got on hand. I topped them with raspberries, coconut flakes, and more sea salt because I love the contrast!

Go straight-up bananas with me and give this recipe a shot! You won’t regret it, I promise!

Quick, easy and healthy chewy fruit bars

So I love cheesecake as much as the next person. But I find myself continuously falling off and back on the healthy eating wagon. And when I fall off, it never feels good. I’ve got a pretty vivid imagination and so I imagine the processed junk I may have had for lunch swooshing around in my stomach as I walk like a box in the back of a car. (bad analogy?)

Then there’s days that I’m back on..really hard. haha. This just so happens to be one of those days. And so I made these babies.

Aren’t they loooovely? Aren’t they beautiful! 

I have to say, I am so ridiculously pleased with how these taste. I think this dessert is going to be one of those things that I always have in the freezer.

Here’s my rendition of @lootahpremiumfoods fig and coconut cheesecake bars and here’s how you can make it.


Ingredients:

Crust:

  • ½ dates
  • ½ almonds
  • pinch of sea salt

Filling:

  • ¾ cup of raw soaked cashews
  • ¼ cup of honey
  • ½ the juice of a lemon
  • ¼ + 1 tbspn of full fat coconut milk
  • ¼ cup of melted coconut oil
  • 1 tspn of vanilla extract

Top with any fresh fruit you’ve got on hand. I topped some with kiwis and some with blueberries.


Here’s how it’s done, son:

1) Line you loaf tin with cling film so that you can easily remove the cheesecake from the mold without it crumbling into a thousand little pieces. 

2) In your food processor, process the dates, almonds, and salt until it forms a crumbly dough.

3) Throw dough into the loaf tin and press down.

4) In a blender, bled all the filling ingredients for 2-3 minutes until silky smooth and poor over the crust.

5) Bang the tin on your counter top a few times to get any air bubbles out.

6) Top with the fresh fruit and cover with cling film.

7) Place in the freezer to set for 4-5 hours.

8) When you’re ready to have a piece, take it out at least 15 minutes before eating so that it doesn’t freeze your teeth off.


There! Easy, peasy! Please, please give it a go and let me know how you liked it.

I don’t think you’d believe me if I told you what this beautiful crystal is used for. 🌹🌸🍀🍁🍂🍃🌺

Let’s just say our grandmothers knew what they were talking about all along.

Ladies, I give to you natural crystal deodorant (also known as شبة ‘shabbeh’ in Arabic). I’ve been using it in the scorching heat of Dubai for a few months now and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Do you have any natural remedies from your grandma?
