Valentine’s Day calls for chocolaty treats to spoil your sweetheart and satisfy your sweet tooth. Instead of wasting money on sugar-filled boxes of chocolates and store-bought cupcakes, consider making a delicious and nutritious dessert at home. This Chocolate Orange Avocado Pudding recipe is perfect for beginner chefs who aren’t too familiar with the oven, but still want to surprise their Valentine with a homemade dessert made with love. The best part? One serving of this creamy, dreamy no-bake dessert recipe clocks in under 100 calories, making it a healthy option that fits into your weight loss plan.
To make this delicious treat, get started by blending together two ripe avocados and one ripe banana. You can use a food processor or a blender. Next, add in six tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder, two tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk, a quarter-teaspoon of vanilla extract, two tablespoons of maple syrup and the juice of one orange. Blend until the mixture is smooth, creamy and well combined. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 30 minutes before serving. Finally, divide the chocolate pudding into 10 small cups and top with orange zest.
One serving of this no-bake dessert recipe counts as three Extras on the Nutrisystem program. This means that you can pair it with a PowerFuel like some chopped almonds, cashews or walnuts! You can even incorporate a SmartCarb like sliced bananas and oranges for even more fruity flavor. Whatever you decide to add to this perfectly portioned chocolate avocado pudding, just be sure to log it in the NuMi app for the best weight loss results.
