21 Day Fix Chocolate Avocado Pudding Dessert Recipe

chocolatepudding221 Day Fix Chocolate Avocado Pudding Dessert Recipe

One of the hardest parts of trying to change your eating habits is all the delicious and unhealthy desserts you are still craving. Here is an amazing and delicious healthy and guilt free dessert that you can eat and all ingredients you can pronounce. This recipe came from the 21 Day Fix Extreme Eating Plan Book.

This recipe does use Chocolate Shakeology® which has so many health benefits plus it a delicious chocolate and no weird after taste. If you wanted to make this more of a Vegan based recipe then just use Vegan Chocolate Shakeology®. Of course you can make it without using any protein powder but I think that is what makes it thicker like a true pudding.

Here are the ingredients you need:
1 and 1/2 scoops of Chocolate Shakeology®
1 medium ripe avocado
1 medium ripe banana
1 cup almond milk

Now cut the banana and avocado and put into a blender cup (I use my Ninja Blender) and add the almond milk and scoops of Shakeology® and blend until smooth. Usually in 45 seconds to a minute. Pour into 4 dessert type cups or bowls (about 3/4 cup) and then chill in the fridge for at least an hour. I did sprinkle unsweetened coconut and hemp hearts on top. You could add sliced fruit, crushed nuts, chia seeds or again plain. It is delicious anyway and now my favorite way to get my chocolate fix without undoing all my hard work. Eating clean is healthy but can still be delicious!

Dark Chocolate Frozen Banana Bites Recipe

bananabites5

*Just a discloser but I did not get paid to talk about Green & Black’s chocolate and I truly enjoy eating a couple of small pieces to satisfy my sweet tooth. It’s the most affordable and best quality dark chocolate I have found that I can buy in my small town.

I love chocolate and it’s so hard to find a really good quality chocolate that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Some dark chocolate bars are $4-6 each! I can’t really afford to indulge at those prices. When I found Green & Blacks 85% Dark Chocolate at my local Walmart for $2.97 each, I actually squealed with delight. I am not kidding. Luckily no one was around. I have also found it at Walgreens and it does go on sale from time to time 2 for $5 which is a great time to stock up. Here is the best part about this chocolate. No soy lecithin. Basically soy lecithin is just an emulsifier so it keeps the candy bar held together. But many people would prefer not to consume it. You can’t beat the ingredient list: organic cocoa butter, organic fat-reduced cocoa powder, organic raw cane sugar, and organic vanilla extract. I can pronounce all of them and nothing hidden.

Now on to the actual recipe and frozen banana bites. This is a super easy recipe. I have all the ingredients and instructions on the recipe card that you can print out or share. I love these fun tools that make life easier.

ITEMS YOU NEED:
2 cookie sheets 9×13 (you have one bigger cookie sheet)
1 Bar of the Green & Black’s 85% Dark Chocolate (honestly you can use something else)
2 medium to large bananas
Chopped up walnuts or pecans (optional)
Either 2 pots to melt the chocolate in or a glass dish if you melt it in the microwave.
Sheet of Wax Paper so they don’t stick to the pan in the freezer.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Cut your bananas into chunks. I cut mine about 3/4 to 1″ thick. The thicker you cut the less you will have so you may want to cut another banana. You will know when you start dipping the bananas.

2) Melt your chocolate. In my picture you will see that I used one bigger pot filled about 1/4 of the way with water. Don’t boil the water but it will need to be almost boiling, lower the temp and stick a smaller pot on the top and it will melt the chocolate rather quickly. Some have said melting it in a glass bowl in the microwave. I preferred the pot method as I have more control over how fast it melts and I find it had a better consistency.

3) Remove from oven and keep your pot over the water as it will keep the chocolate warm. I also tilted the pot so it makes it easier to dip the bananas. Now you will start dipping the bananas. Make sure you have your wax paper on the cookie sheet so once you dip the banana chunk you can put it on the cookie sheet. I tried using toothpicks but I was having trouble. I found using a fork worked the best for me.

4) Now you have dipped all the banana chunks and you can sprinkle chopped walnuts or pecans on top. Totally your choice. I put them in a freezer for at least 3 to 4 hours. Once frozen take them off the cookie sheet and put them in an airtight container or freezer bag.

Mine yielded 34 bites. You may have more of less depending on how thick you cut the bananas.
