2 raw avocado puddings

So yummy, but rich enough that you could easily cut this recipe in half and still have plenty! This was Gillian McKeith's raw lemon pudding, and though she touts it for weight-loss reasons, we're just really trying to stay away from dairy and raw puddings are a great stand-in dessert (and so much healthier!). With avocados, lemon (you can cut the amount of lemon flesh in half!), fresh orange juice, dates, and maple syrup, this was one delicious treat.

I'd made cooked avocado/chocolate pudding before, but it was cooked, and had sugar, but this version from The Leftover Queen was raw, sweetened with a bit of maple syrup, and was so easy to just chuck in the blender. And it was pretty yummy (though I could still taste the avocado a bit). I'm thinking of trying three new versions in the future: mocha, cayenne pepper, and rum (this last one would just be a mommy and daddy treat).

Nothing to do with raw avocado puddings, but we do have a green-smoothie lover--the moustache gives it away.
