Raw Chocolate Pudding

This is a delicious and unique (not the mention healthy!) recipe. It was very simple to make…the only time involved is soaking the dates. Try this straight off the spatula or frozen. There is another version here (it’s a little more gourmet…but Renee is one of my favorite chefs…so I had to mention it!). No photo today…you’ll just have to make it yourself! Yum!

Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People
by Jennifer Cornbleet

Yeld: 1 cup, 2 servings

1/4 c. pitted medjool dates, soaked*
1/4 c. pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. mashed avocados (1 1/2 avocados)
1/4 c. plus 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa or carob powder
1/4 c. water

Place the dates, maple syrup, and vanilla in a food processor fitted
with an S blade and process until smooth. Add the avocado and cocoa
powder and process until creamy. Stop occasionally to scrape down
the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the water and
process briefly. Stored in a sealed container, it will keep for
three days in the refrigerator, or two weeks in the freezer. Serve
chilled or at room temp.


Increase amounts to 1/2 c. dates, soaked, 1/2 c. maple syrup, 1 tsp.
vanilla extract, 1/2 c. mashed avos (3 avos). 3/4 c. cocoa powder,
and 1/2 c. water. Yield: 2 cups, 4 servings.

    I hadn’t made this for a long time and just did the other night. It’s so good! I love it after it’s gotten good and chilled.

    Hi! I love some of the recipes you’ve posted. (And I’m following your adventures in veggie oil trip too) :-).

    I was wondering how you soak the dates and for how long? I didn’t know if I was missing that part of your post or not.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
