Mind Diet Recipe: Chocolate Avocado Brain Pudding
This week is Brain Awareness Week, and we wanted to share one of Kyle ER’s favorite Mind Diet recipes to celebrate. The Mind Diet is a series of guidelines for your family’s diet that promote brain health and help to prevent conditions like Alzheimer’s later in life. Incorporating some of these techniques into your meal prep can do wonders to improve your brain’s health.
This recipe, our Chocolate Avocado Brain Pudding, is a delicious, silky smooth dessert, which contains a lot of good protein and oil for your brain. Avocados and olive oil are both positive oils that help to promote heart and brain health. Whey sugar or honey make for good, natural sweeteners that don’t have the same elevated glucose levels of cane sugar. Substituting them in your after-dinner treats can keep your diet on the right track without sacrificing your sweet tooth.
Try this pudding recipe out this month, to experience a wonderful desert that tastes as rich as a chocolate mousse, but without the guilt!
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes | Serves: 4
- 2 very ripe Avocados

- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon of chia seeds, ground
- Almond or Soy milk to taste—helps to smooth out the texture
