Spirulina-Chocolate Pudding (Vegan, GF)

When I first started out on this health journey, one of the first things I bought was spirulina. I barely knew what it was, it just looked green and healthy sitting on the shelf in the health food store. Well I STILL have about half of the container left from when I bought it at the start of last summer. I just can't seem to find good ways to eat it without tasting awful seaweed. Well ever since I've started the candida diet I have been LIVING off of these avocado puddings, they are amazing! I decided to add some spirulina to a batch I was making just to see, I cringed as I added it and hoped for the best. One taste later and...it isn't half bad. A great way to get spirulina into your body!

Ewww, what are you eating?! Oh this? it's sludge from that swamp down the road...

2 small avocados
1/4 cup water
4 tbsp carob powder
15 drops vanilla stevia
1 tsp spirulina
Small squeeze of lemon

Combine the avocados and water in a blender (we used magic bullet), or food processor. Process until combined. Add rest of ingredients. Process until smooth and creamy. Makes 1 satisfying serving, or two small servings.

  3. I'm always looking for ways to choke down my Spirulina ;) (not loving it yet) This looks like one way to begin liking it! I'll definitely try this.

  4. Wow - I never would have put avocado with pudding, but it makes a bunch of sense now that I think of it! Plus, I really love avocados, so if all else fails I could turn it into a guac-pudding ,o)

  5. Okay, I absolutely can't stop giggling at this pudding, because while I know it's delicious, it really does look like something from a swamp. But considering that half the things I eat look horrible (melting peanut butter and chocolate through everything will do that), I'm super keen to try it :)
