One of my favorite desserts to make is this Chocolate Avocado Pudding. Whenever, I am craving something sweet and chocolaty, but want to keep it healthy, this is the dessert I turn to. The avocado gives it the perfect creaminess and the chocolate gives me the sweet flavor I am craving.
I recently came across a recipe that included a banana into this pudding. I love bananas and could just imagine the extra creaminess and sweetness this fruit would give the pudding. Plus, the recipe includes cinnamon and that is one of my favorite spices; especially this time of the year!
