Our raw chocolate pudding pie is a decadent chocolate treat, that’s also good for you. We use avocado and banana for a natural dairy-free creaminess, and dates and maple syrup for natural sweetness. We put it in a delicious chewy vegan no bake shell. Then we add a few cashews on the top for a nutty taste.
Cacao is high in polyphenols and flavanols, which helps improve blood flow, reduce blood pressure and improve mood. Avocados are loaded with potassium and fiber and are a good source of Vitamin K, Vitamin C and folate. Cashews have a low glycemic index (GI), which means they won’t spike your blood sugar levels, and are full of fiber, to help digestion, healthy fats and high-quality plant-based protein. They’re also loaded with magnesium, which helps with heart health as well as regulating nerves and blood pressure. Dates are high in fiber, disease-fighting antioxidants and minerals that support good bone health. Coconut oil is a good source of healthy fats that are important for proper brain function, reducing hunger and raising the good blood cholesterol (HDL) levels.
