This is our favorite kind of sweet treat. Equal parts creamy deliciousness and healthy nutrition!
It’s quick and easy to whip up, but even the time it takes to blend will have you drooling with anticipation.
Let’s get started:
1 1/2 ripe California avocados, peeled and pitted
1/3 cup quality organic cocoa powder (made from 100% pure cacao)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
1/4 cup organic coconut milk
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp flax oil
Raspberries and mint leaves for garnish
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Garnish with raspberries and mint before serving.
A few benefits of these delicious ingredients:
Avocados: These creamy, satisfying fruits are very high in healthy fats, including oleic acid (a.k.a. omega-9), which can reduce inflammation. They also contain significant amounts of vitamins B5, B6, C, E and K and are high in potassium, which can balance blood pressure levels, reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, and improve kidney health.
Cocoa powder: Calcium and potassium are among the nutrients present in cocoa powder, in addition to plenty of antioxidants. Cocoa can help to lower bad cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of clogged arteries and balance blood pressure.
Raw honey: This “liquid gold” is used in many natural healing solutions, such as cough suppressants and sleep aids as it has antioxidant and antibacterial properties. It also supports your immune system.
Coconut milk: Wholesome and delicious, coconut milk is high in fiber, and contains vitamins B1, B3, B5, B6, C and E, in addition to minerals such as selenium, iron, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.
Flaxseeds are one of nature’s most powerful sources of nutrition. Panaseeda Flax Oil contains essential omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential to health. It supports the cardiovascular system and the digestive system, as well as eye health and blood sugar balance. It even maintains healthy hormonal balance.
Raspberries: Always a favorite, these tart and tasty berries possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making them great for weight loss, immune system support and even pain relief. They are also high in potassium and other minerals, making them great for controlling heart rate and managing blood pressure.
Mint: Mint can offer relief from indigestion and inflammation as well as nausea and headaches. It can also stimulate digestive enzymes that can help you to lose weight.
UPDATE(24-10-2016): We just got a call from a customer who tells us that she has been making this pudding recipe every day since we posted it back in June! She said that she adds Oceans Alive to her pudding for the added nutrition. The pudding completely hides the ‘fishy’ taste. Thanks Janet!

This site uses Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solution on the web for helping us to understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit so we can continue to produce engaging content.
A persistent cookie - remains on a computer, unless it expires or the cookie cache is cleared. It tracks visitors. Metrics associated with the Google __utma cookie include: first visit (unique visit), last visit (returning visit). This also includes Days and Visits to purchase calculations which afford ecommerce websites with data intelligence around purchasing sales funnels.
__utmb Cookie & __utmc Cookie
These cookies work in tandem to calculate visit length. Google __utmb cookie demarks the exact arrival time, then Google __utmc registers the precise exit time of the user.
Because __utmb counts entrance visits, it is a session cookie, and expires at the end of the session, e.g. when the user leaves the page. A timestamp of 30 minutes must pass before Google cookie __utmc expires. Given__utmc cannot tell if a browser or website session ends. Therefore, if no new page view is recorded in 30 minutes the cookie is expired.
This is a standard 'grace period' in web analytics. Ominture and WebTrends among many others follow the same procedure.
Cookie __utmz monitors the HTTP Referrer and notes where a visitor arrived from, with the referrer siloed into type (Search engine (organic or cpc), direct, social and unaccounted). From the HTTP Referrer the __utmz Cookie also registers, what keyword generated the visit plus geolocation data.
This cookie lasts six months. In tracking terms this Cookie is perhaps the most important as it will tell you about your traffic and help with conversion information such as what source / medium / keyword to attribute for a Goal Conversion.
Google __utmv Cookie lasts "forever". It is a persistant cookie. It is used for segmentation, data experimentation and the __utmv works hand in hand with the __utmz cookie to improve cookie targeting capabilities.
