GUEST BLOG: Easter Fat-Burning Chocolate pudding by Natalia Otero-Sancho

EASTER Fat-Burning Chocolate Pudding
 This fat-burning chocolate pudding is high in fibre  healthy fats, protein, and low in sugar, with ZERO artificial sweeteners and NO added sugars!
(This recipe will make about 2-4 servings and is a great healthy dessert or late night snack)
   1/2 of a ripe avocado (soft to touch)
   approx 3 tablespoons of almond butter (preferably raw if possible)
   approx 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk.
   2 heaping tablespoons of organic cocoa powder
   1/2 teaspoon of vanilla or cinnamon.
   1 packet of XYLITOL (or enough to your desired sweetness level)
   1/2 to 3/4 of a scoop of SLIM&SASSY whey chocolate protein powder (http://www.mydoterra.com/chloespilates/)
   just a small pinch of Himalayan salt.

Put the avocado and almond butter into a bowl and mash together with a fork until smooth.  Then add all of the other ingredients into the bowl and mix together vigorously until all is mixed and smooth. 
If everything went right, the consistency will be similar to pudding... except normal pudding makes you FAT with loads of sugar!  This pudding HELPS you to burn fat, control cravings, and satisfy your body's need for micro-nutrients, protein, healthy fats, and fiber.
If the pudding ends up too thick, simply add a bit more almond milk or coconut milk for more moisture until the consistency seems right.
If you want to get a little wild and add some more nutrient-rich additions, feel free to add some chopped pecans, chia seeds, rice bran, or walnuts at the end.  And it tastes great to top this dish with some sliced strawberries!
