I'll back track and post a SIMPLE recipe. This one is a hit with kids and adults. Chocolate Pudding recipe by Linda Mahns
Serves 2-4 depending on how greedy you are! :-) This was among the very first recipes that I made when I experimented with raw food. I ate this for breakfast sometimes. How can you feel deprived when you eat like this? • 2 bananas • 1 avocado • 1-2 Tbsp raw cacao powder (or raw carob) • 1 tsp raw honey or agave (optional) Mix in a food processor until it becomes smooth like pudding.
For years I used a little 2 cup food processor that we got at a garage sale. I still have in fact and it's perfect for this recipe. Doesn't take up hardly any space and there is no trash - only compost for your garden! don't let this recipe fool you, it is DELICIOUS! I made it for a school bbq. It looked like jello pudding and for that reason people didn't touch it. Not until they found out I made it and then they knew it was raw food. You can make this into a pudding pie by adding the following crust:
Basic Raw Pie Crust 2 cups walnuts 1-2 Tbsp agave 1 tsp vanilla (optional) 1 small pinch of Celtic sea salt, the coarse gray kind In a food processor, process the ingredients until it sticks to the sides a little bit. You can adjust the agave if you like it a little sweeter, but 1-2 Tbsp will be plenty sweet. Scoop out onto a pie plate and with your fingers, press down into the pie plate to form the crust. Then add the pie filling and chill. That's it.
Another great recipe that can be eaten any time of the day. I went to a dinner once and there was a person there that lived there but was very sick and couldn't attend the dinner. He was HIV+ - later in the month, he told me that this pudding pie was the only thing that he could eat that he could keep down while he was on the mend and he said it felt very nourishing to him. I'll never forget that and I was very happy to have left the pie with the family that night.
