Organic chocolate pudding

I’m always on the lookout for another option, or tool for the proverbial tool belt, to make life outside of the “takeout” world a much more fun place to reside. I think I came across this recipe on facebook the other day(I was really considering getting rid of the account all together).

I was tres excited to try this with my kids and it turned out awesome! They liked it and it is an easy thing to send in their lunches and feel good about at the same time!
Happy health/life to you! Enjoy the journey!

Dad’s GF chocolate “ice cream”

Being the first day back to school, after dinner I thought I would try to make chocolate ice cream for my girls. I haven’t tried this, but I had heard of the idea and I like to “wing it” sometimes!
I had tried sweet potato ice cream before but it wasn’t great.
The challenges that we have is that our one daughter is off dairy(we would like it if we all excluded it, but that is another matter) no sugar, as well as celiac.
So I pulled out my container of frozen bananas, honey, cocoa and coconut milk for the experiment.
Here is the recipe:
Everything is approximate. So you may have to play around with the measurements a bit until you are happy with your results.
Start with about 4 frozen bananas in the blender
1 tablespoon of honey
1 heaping tablespoon of the best cocoa that you can find
1/4 cup of coconut milk(or almond milk)

This is a real blender test!
Blend well until thick and malt like consistency.
Most recently, I like to add chopped pecan for the extra calories.
Enjoy:)
