Best Body Boot Camp Update: 1st. off I have learned that I can push past the pain. 2nd. I look forward to working out. Pushing past the pain has been easier than I thought. I had some serious thigh burning the first few minutes of my elliptical workout today, but once I got past the burn I found myself having more energy and ability to adapt to the changing intervals with ease. I have also found that I look forward to what I will get to try next, I mean not in a million years would I ever have thought that I would be doing some of these exercises, they always seems too advance for me, but when I am able to do them, and complete the set it just helps me build my confidence and lose the phrase “I can’t do that”.
Now on to something sweet. There are times when we all find a recipe that immediately you know I have to make that, well here’s one such recipe for Avocado Chocolate Pudding that I adapted from That’s so Michelle. I knew that if my husband saw me making this he would taste it with hesitation or maybe prejudge what it would taste like, so I made it while he was working out. My husband loves food and he really is not picky at all, but I wanted him to eat the pudding and tell me how he liked it before I told him what was in it. I just love to show him that you can add goodness to any meal, snack and dessert.
Avocado Chocolate Pudding
It was weird to see avocado and peanut butter in a bowl together.
I was excited to get to try out Swanson Organic Cocoa Powder in a recipe that would really feature it. I just love that fact that there is NO sugar added to it and it has a smooth cocoa flavor.
Mix it all together in a bowl and use your hand mixer until smooth.
This batch made 4 really nice size servings. I added chocolate chips for a little crunch.
So here’s the reaction from my husband. He loved it. Which I knew he would. So I then told him what was in it. The only thing he said was “You Put What in My Pudding?” It was so funny, he really didn’t care what was in it because it tasted like Chocolate Pudding.
