Hubba, hubba, dairy-free recipes! But before we get to that…
How is it already Sunday? And, the last weekend in September?
Weekends have Life is just flying by.
I spent most of the day yesterday running around the city. I took pictures throughout my travels to make the day a bit more enjoyable.
After heading in to the city to visit my Chiropractor, my #1 priority was finding some chocolate soy pudding for Kevin. He cannot live without the stuff.
I’ve told him multiple times that I can make him pudding, but he refuses.
Eh, more for me!
Then it was on to find him raspberry soda mix for our sodastream machine. Seriously one of the best kitchen purchases, ever.
While I was searching for said mixture, I stumbled on a rolling pin sale! Yes, it actually said that on the store sign.
I’ve been using an old (clean) wine bottle as a rolling pin since I started the blog.
I figured it was time for an upgrade.
Then, Kevin and I went to Home Depot… again.
I found some awesome paint colors and a couple more wood stains for more homemade blog props!
I really need to start planning the paint colors for the house, but I figure painting little pieces of wood is good practice for large walls.
By the time we got home it was 7:30pm and our neighbors were due for their visit any minute.
We prepped some snacks, hung out in the kitchen, and tested our new sparkly water mixture.
We spent the rest of the evening out on the patio catching up with friends, a perfect end to a busy day.
… and this pudding was the perfect Sunday beginning.
No one would know that this pudding is sugar-free, made from avocados, and is 100% raw.
And it’s only 4 ingredients!
A little goes a long way though. I think I can split this batch (all shown in the picture) into 4 servings.
This morning, I had it over top of a bowl of fresh blackberries.
Delicious in every way possible!
The lemon flesh adds so much flavor to this vegan, sugar-free, and raw pudding!
6 medjool dates, pitted (yield: ½ cup)
flesh from 2 lemons – without peel or seeds (yield: ⅓ cup) *see note
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Place all ingredients in a processor or blender and blend until smooth.
Depending on the ripeness of your avocado, and your desired thickness, you may need to add water. I added 2 tablespoons at the end of blending the ingredients.
Top with seeds, berries, stir in some chia, or eat plain!
To remove the flesh from the lemon, cut the lemon into quarters. Begin by peeling the flesh from the rind. You’ll be left with the flesh and a bunch of seeds in it. Remove the seeds one by one and place the flesh into the processor.
