So only last night was I able to kick my legs up and enjoy some spare time. The first time in months that I have had the luxury to cuddle up in my trackies to some A-grade television, and to my delight none other than Keeping up with the Kardashians was airing. Now you have to admit, love them or hate them, their show is pretty damn good. Although you have to be in the mood to watch the hilarious and dramatic family battle it out for most fashionable family member, generally you are in the mood. I mean how can you not be?!
What struck me as a blog post topic however is what was nestled in between Kourtney Kardashian’s hands – my long time favourite quick and easy breakfast – the Avocado pudding. Hoooollldd up! I thought this was my well kept secret?! Kourtney Kardashian knows it so now the whole world does. Apparently I am not alone when it comes to my addiction to the dish. Notoriously known for its sweet flavour and pudding-like texture, this is a breakfast food loved by many but also unknown to many. So I thought a blog post was in order to explain the theory behind the nutrient-rich superfood, and a quick how to guide on preparing one for yourself! People can put all kinds of quirky and fun twists on the dish for a little zazz, such as adding in chocolate powder, flavoured protein powders, milk variations, and peanut butters.
Avocadoes are great for those with a sweet tooth who are watching what they eat, as not only do they offer a soft mellow flavour allowing others to take the lead, but also offer the perfect smooth yet texturised consistency needed for many desserts, puddings, cakes, and brownies. Think of it as a base substitute to cream. While yes, they are high in fat as I am sure you have heard, it is the good fats. Not only that, but avocados have more potassium than other fruits such as bananas, are high in vitamins B, E, and K, and are also a great source of fibre. Winning!
Originally a filipino dish, this recipe has been embraced by the whole world who are slowly catching on to this delicious and genius idea and using it for all kinds of purposes from breakfast to dessert.
Being possibly the most simple gourmet breakfast recipe, all you need to do is blend in an electric mixer 1 whole peeled and pitted avocado, and then add in:
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 3 teaspoons of sugar (or substitute)
**Note: Now is where you would add in any extras that you desire such as cocoa or flavoured protein powder.
Voila! There you have your avocado pudding full of nutrients to kickstart your day. I sometimes even use these as a cheeky after dinner snack if I am facing the cravings badly for something sweet, for a guilt-free indulgence.
