“Avocado is rich in monounsaturated fats, which make its texture creamy and smooth. It contains a lot of fiber, vitamins, and minerals such as vitamin K, vitamin E, vitamin C and B-vitamins, potassium, and copper.” - Well-beingsecrets.com.
Avocados are great to: reduce symptoms of Arthritis, lower Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels, help your eyes health, provide folic acid and other benefits for pregnant women, protect your liver from malfunctions, prevent Vitamin K deficiency and to boost your skin glow to look amazing!
For this recipe we are going to use the best option you can find in the market our Rainforest Baking Cocoa.
“Rainforest Baking Cocoa is a brown cocoa powder with reddish tones. It is popular for dessert preparation and chocolate milk because it mixes easily and has a robust fudge flavor. This cocoa is a low acid cocoa powder with no fruit flavor notes, chocolate fudge or dark brownie is the predominate taste.” – Santa Barbara Chocolate.
Cocoa powder could really be beneficial for your health, yes; you can use it as a reason to eat a little piece of dark chocolate every day. Some of the benefits are that cocoa powder contains: iron, manganese, zinc, antioxidants, protein and fiber.

I recommend adding some nuts as toppings to add a crunchy texture to the dessert. Pistachios and almonds are the best options. Another good topping for this pudding is some cream or even chocolate shavings. Use your imagination; this simple recipe can have many variations to make unique desserts.
