Alton Brown's Chocolate Avocado Chia Seed Pudding
Alton Brown's recipe written in my own words.
Servings 6 people
- 1 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
- ½ cup maple syrup Grade A Dark Robust
- ⅓ cup chia seeds
- 1 avocado pitted, skin removed
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 2 tbsp coconut oil liquid form
- 2 cups water
Place the cocoa powder into your blender.
Heat up 1 cup of water in the microwave for 1 minute. Add to the blender and blend on high for 30 seconds.
Add in the avocado, maple syrup, chia seeds, kosher salt, vanilla extract, and 1 cup of water. Blend on high for 45 seconds.
Microwave the coconut oil if it's a solid at room temperature until it becomes a liquid. Then slowly stream into the blender with it's running. Blend for 60 seconds.
Remove from the blender into a large container with a lid or individual containers and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before enjoying.
You can use natural cocoa powder as well. The ending product may have more of an acidic or bitter taste, but I found it still very tasty.
Untested - If you don't like the texture of the seeds, you can try turning the seeds into a powder before making. Place the seeds into a clean coffee grinder until it's a powder.
