Avocado Chocolate Super Pudding
Love avocado? Let me introduce you to one of my family’s favorite treats! Not just guilt-free, but also super nutritious and delicious. This pudding is a big hit with my kids as well as my adult family members. Some people, especially children, may be turned off by the idea of making a chocolate pudding out of avocados. But try to give them a taste without showing them the process, they will never know. It is that good. It is also very easy to make.
Let’s take a look at what makes this pudding a superfood?
The health benefits of avocado include weight management, protection from cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, treating osteoarthritis and enhancing the absorption of nutrients for the body. I strongly encourage you to read a great article about the amazing benefits of avocado from my friends at Well-being Secrets.
Cacao beans contain natural chemicals called flavonoids, a type of antioxidant compound that promotes general health and might lower your risk of several diseases. Antioxidants stabilize and ultimately destroy free radicals in your cells and tissues. These potentially damaging chemicals are natural by-products of metabolism. They also form when your body breaks down environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke and organic solvents. Free radicals can injure your cells by interfering with cell membranes, damaging DNA and altering other cell components. Over time, a buildup of free radicals can accelerate aging, contribute to vascular changes that lead to heart disease and raise your risk of developing cancer. In addition to removing free radicals, antioxidants also help decrease inflammation that can contribute to arthritis and other diseases, and they can prevent changes in platelets that might produce blood clots. In addition, flavonoid antioxidants in cacao have significant benefits for your cardiovascular system, by preventing plaque formation, improving circulation, and lowering your risk of heart disease.
