I was going to name this “Figgy Pudding” as I think it sounds cuter than chocolate fig pudding, but I thought it would confuse people as it in no way resembles the traditional figgy pudding. So Chocolate Fig Pudding it is. The title is very self-explanatory.
I mentioned last week that it’s fig season – so here is another fig-licious recipe for you to enjoy. I love this because it comes together in about 5 minutes flat – my favourite kind of dessert =)
Chocolate Fig Pudding (serves 4… or 2 chocolate addicts)
8-12 fresh figs (dried just isn’t going to cut it for this one)
1/4 cup of cacao powder
1/4 of a ripe avocado
2 tbsp of maple syrup (optional)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp of cinnamon
**2 heaping tbsp of almond butter (see note)
Toss all of the ingredients in your food processor and whiz until creamy. I took out half of the pudding and spooned it into a bowl and set aside. I then added the almond butter to the remaining mixture to have two different kinds of pudding. I liked the almond-butter version better, but my friend Di enjoyed the nut-butter-less one. Try with or without depending on what you feel like – or add something completely different like shredded coconut or gogi berries.
