This orange chocolate pudding is all about the pleasure with none of the guilt! It’s beautiful and balanced notes of oranges, it is satisfying, and sweet tooth approved!
This orange pudding is one of those desserts I always enjoy and wonder why I don’t have it more often each time I try it!
It’s what I call a multitasking dessert. Why? It’s nutritious, delicious, beautiful colors, and easy. It’s loaded with healthy fats from the avocado, antioxidants from the cacao powder, the raw organic kind contains 40 percent more antioxidants than the same serving size of blueberries. It has vitamin C from the orange, and fiber from everything. We all know we need fiber so stop thinking about protein, if you are eating enough of the right food, you are getting enough of it!
Since when fun can’t can’t be good, right? It’s a match in heavens between useful and agreeable! YUM! There is no reason to pout, none whatsoever!
When choosing your avocado just make sure it’s at its peak, ripe enough to mash with a fork smoothly or go through a blender. Overripe avocado yield this weird taste that I do not find pleasant at all. It just tastes old. If that’s even a thing! HAHA! who knows?
Why should you try this orange chocolate pudding?
Try this orange chocolate pudding! Here is why:
If you are a chocolate lover, you really don’t need a reason! This recipe is just an excuse to get your fix!
If you are on a healthy journey, well… Depends on what kind of diet you are on. I hope whichever one it is chocolate is not blacklisted because it would be so unfortunate. I won’t tell if you don’t! 😉
If you are a beginner in the kitchen or very busy like I am. It’s quick to make. You can even prepare it overnight and have it as a treat after a long day!
I also had it a few time before a workout.
It’s not too sweet, not heavy, and delicious! So good!

Loads of well-written dramatic scenes, great dialogues, and momentum! It never gets old! I read this piece the first time when I was 10 years-old and I am still in love with it!
