So as you can imagine, a few days into the diet, I was seriously craving something sweet. I searched high and low for a recipe for something sweet, but a lot of baked goods popped up and I didn’t have all of the ingredients in my pantry. I finally found a few recipes for chocolate pudding – I took ingredients from different recipes and made my own.
I’m not going to lie – the first bite was really weird. Maybe it was because the avocado that I used was sitting out in the fruit bowl so it was already at room temperature. It tasted like warm avocado topped with cocoa powder. Not good. But I put the sucker in the fridge for an hour and tried it again and it was delicious! The best thing is that I had about 2 bites and I was satisfied.
Here’s Bjorn’s experience:
Me: Bjorn, try this! It’s chocolate pudding! (hee hee hee >:))
B: **Takes a little baby bite** That’s weird. That’s not chocolate pudding.
