Rawalishes chocolate dessert

Me and Bella had a wonderful afternoon yesterday when Noah slept so we made dessert together, her favorite, raw chocolate pudding. I love it when I made raw dessert to my kids since my rule is that if goes into their mouths it need to have some nutrition in it and raw dessert do.

Since the base for this pudding is avocado and dates I know she gets nearly 20 essential nutrients from the avocado alone including fiber, vitamin E, B and folic acid and it contains good fats. Dates provides iron, copper an potassium amount other things.

The avocado makes it wonderfully creamy and the dates perfectly sweet. I made it a little more fun and shaved some raw chocolate on top of the pudding. For decoration I put a raspberry on top and afterward realized it was delicious combined with the chocolate so next time I will make it a raspberry flavored chocolate pudding.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

2 fresh dates, pitted and soaked for 1 hour in 1/2 cup water
1/2 large and ripe avocado
1 tsp raw coconut butter

Add coconut butter, maple syrup, vanilla bean, cocoa powder, mesquite if using and avocado and process until very creamy, scrape down sides once. Pour into portion cups or serving bowl.
