A couple of weeks ago, a fellow personal trainer at the gym where I work, brought in a sample of a dessert she had made for her husband. She offered us ‘Friday Foodies’ (myself and two other trainers who always end up talking favourite foodie finds on Fridays, the only days we’re all in the gym at the same time) a taste of chocolate, protein and avocado pudding.
I thought I had died and gone to heaven!
So rich and creamy and intensely chocolate. She gave me the recipe (I have no idea where she found it; if it’s yours, please let me know in the comments section below and I’ll be happy to credit you) and I stopped to purchase avocados on my way home, determined to make it for dessert that night. It was, after all, Dessert Night Friday!
My chocolate-loving children thought it was TOO chocolatey. Next time I’ll cut back a bit on the cocoa powder. Hubby and I thought it was just right. I hope you and your family enjoy it too!
