Although the most prominent purpose of starting to eat low carb is to unlearn eating sweets and carbs, I think everyone sometimes has a sweet tooth. Including me, even if that isn’t happening very often. And as I already mentioned, I prefer quick recipes, that won’t cost me all day in the kitchen. Avocado choco pudding is one of them, and though it’s in the section desserts, there is no reason to feel guilty, because it consists purely out of healthy foods.
No wonder avocado is being highlighted as a superfood. It has a high nutrient value, contains plenty of vitamins and minerals. One avocado contains 15 grams of healthy fats and only 2 gram of clean carbs, so it is the perfect low carb food. It doesn’t matter if you put this delicious fruit in your hair, on your skin or you eat it, you always make a good choice. And what I love about avocado is its creamy, neutral taste which allows combining either with sweet or salty flavor.
Avocado Choco Pudding – Low Carb Sweets for Kids too
I prepare this dessert primarily for my kids because although they aren’t 100% low carb, I try to avoid them eating industrially processed foods. Why am I writing this, in the recipe I indicate to sweeteners such as stevia, xylitol, and erythritol. They are the only allowed according to LC rules. But for my kids I prefer to use homemade honey, even it isn’t low carb. From the sweeteners mentioned above, I prefer erythritol, because of its clean taste, but there are different opinions, and everyone should try himself what fits him most.
Last but not least I would like to mention, that although there are plenty of fantastic possibilities, how to make low carb desserts, it shouldn’t become a routine eating them. Usually, they have a very high nutrition value, and you can easily exceed your daily calories income. Also, I recommend starting with desserts like this Avocado Choco Pudding first after some time eating low carb with real basic foods. Because often you realize, you don’t need sweet taste anymore and even carrots will seem very sweet for you. Honestly, since I’ve been low carb (more than one year), I made desserts maybe five times including birthday cake, and mostly I don’t even put sweetener inside for me.
