Here’s a fantastic recipe to start your Monday off with Vitality, and of course, a little chocolate. It gets its name from the way I stacked the ingredients for the photo shoot. Don’t fret if you don’t have all the superfoods on hand. Improvise – and have a Powerful Monday!
Tower of Power Pudding
Two ripe Haas avocados
1 Tbs. Maca powder
1 Tbs. Acai powder
2 Tbs. Hemp Hearts
1 scoop Wholeganic Greens
1-2 Tbs. raw cacao powder
1 scoop of your favorite protein powder (I like Plant Fusion Vanilla)
1 Tbs. Agave or coconut palm nectar or 8 drops Stevia
Blend all ingredients in a food processor. It may be necessary to add small amounts of water to help it become smooth and dissolve all the powder granules. Scrape sides with rubber spatula so that all the powder is evenly distributed.
I have to say, given that this is loaded with superfoods and not traditional sweet-tooth satisfiers like white sugar, chocolate syrup, whipped cream…you get the picture…it’s pretty good! Not roll-your-head-good, but it’s a creamy enough delight with the right amount of sweetness and it will actually NOURISH you. I promise.
Serve immediately. If you’re dining on this solo, keep half the pudding in an airtight container for the fridge – it’ll last a few days. This is perfect as a breakfast, snack, or post-workout nutrition infusion. POW!
