I have a sweet tooth and when I crave sugar I usually go for chocolate, cakes, cookies, donuts- basically anything super sugary.
But I recently got inspired to start trying and making healthy desserts, so I made this recipe up with ingredients I already had and it turned out really well. I'm trying to be more mindful of everything I eat and slowly reducing my sugar intake.
The superfood sorbet is made of blended acai sorbet, frozen blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. These ingredients are full of antioxidants, vitamins, and omega 3's. Acai has also proven to promote clear skin, cognitive function and digestion.
Avocado pudding is my favorite! It may sound weird at first, but don't knock it till you try it.
Once you blend the avocado, it turns into a light mousse like pudding. The coco powder and sweetener will make you forget that you're eating a vegetable for dessert.
Top it off with some chopped dark chocolate and your sweet tooth will be satisfied.
2 ice cream scoops acai sorbet (I used this brand)
2 handfuls frozen berry medley (blueberries, strawberries & raspberries)
1/4-1/2 cup almond milk (add enough to make a thick smoothie, not loose)
Avo Chocolate Pudding
1 large avocado
2 tablespoons coco powder
6-8 tablespoons coffee or almond milk (coffee will make the chocolate flavor more intense)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 teaspoons raw sugar, honey, agave, coconut sugar, etc
2 dark chocolate squares, rough chopped for topping
