Let's start with the chocolate pudding. We have my mom to thank for this one. If you didn't know, you'd swear it was made from the finest dairy products on earth.Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding
1-2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup water (I use a bit more)
1/4 cup raw cocao powder (or just regular cocoa powder if it's all you've got)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Put all ingredients in blender and mix to desired consistency. Serve cold.
My mom brought this to me after I got out of the hospital and it's all I seem to want lately. Especially at 2 am when I'm puttering around the house with one eye open and a baby in my arms.
Remember how I was pregnant and due on March 29th? Yeah, that didn't work out very well. Because this little drama nugget had other plans.
I won't bore you with the gory details (posterior babies suck), but it was...gory. And scary. And the most incredible thing that has ever happened to me. She was 5 1/2 weeks early and only spent 3 days in the NICU. Now she's home with me and I've been spending my days loving every millimeter of her. And trust me, a 4 pound 9 ounce baby isn't made up of very many millimeters.
Oh and let me tell you something else, if you don't have a friend who is willing to smuggle green shakes and black bean salsa into the hospital for you, you should really look into getting one. They kind of rock.
