Creamy Chocolate Avocado Pudding (Dairy + Refined Sugar Free)

Creamy Chocolate Avocado Pudding

This is the most decadent healthy recipe out there. Rich cacao powder paired with creamy avocado and cashew butter make for a super tasty treat. To be honest, I even have this for breakfast sometimes. It’s that healthy and that good.

When I made up a batch this week, Jackson anxiously waited beside me. He pulled at my pant legs until I finally bent down to give him a spoonful. Obviously, he loved it. However, he did not love when it was all done.

Healthy Chocolate

The question I often get when talking about raw cacao is:

“Are cacao and cocoa powder are the same?”

No, they are not. Raw cacao powder is made with unroasted cocoa beans that have been cold-pressed. This process keeps the living enzymes and many of its beneficial nutrients intact. Cocoa powder, on the other hand, has been roasted at high temperatures, destroying its enzymes and nutrients.

Not that I have to convince you to eat more healthy chocolate treats, but just in case – here are 5 reasons to include more raw cacao in your life.

  1. Boosts Mood: Raw cacao contains a wide array of mood-boosting compounds. Anandamide (aka the bliss molecule) creates feelings of euphoria, while phenethylamine triggers the release of endorphins (the love hormone).
  2. Muscle & Nerve Health: With its high levels of magnesium, raw cacao is key for helping support our muscles and nerves.
  3. Antioxidants: The chocolatey powder has over 40x the antioxidants of blueberries.  Antioxidants are important because they combat free radicals in the body, thus reducing your risk of several diseases – including cancer.
  4. Prevents Anemia: Not only does it beat out spinach as one of the highest plant-based sources of iron, but it contains almost 3x more iron than beef.
  5. Stress Reduction: Studies have shown raw cacao inhibits the release of the stress hormones cortisol and epinephrine from the adrenal glands.

You can find raw cacao powder in health food stores or the natural section of most grocery stores. But, when in doubt…find it online 🙂

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

Now my skin is completely blemish-free, I don’t even have to wear makeup. I don’t even break out around my cycle. I really owe it to Katie for her knowledge, and guidance during this clear skin journey. Thank you, Katie!!

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
