If you saw my recent post you know my husband recently got braces. As a result I have been on a quest to make soft but delicious and filling foods. My husband has an extremely fast metabolism and goes through fuel quickly. He is a grazer and like to have snacks in the afternoon and evening. Having braces has really put a damper on what he is able to snack on.

I remember when I first mentioned avocado pudding back in January when we began to change our diet. Hubby was not to keen on the idea. Amazing how the less options you have the more appealing some things may become.  I have heard, from friends who have tried making avocado pudding, say that it tastes like avocado mixed with chocolate. This was not my goal. The hope was to make a rich creamy pudding that people would be shocked to find out was made with an avocado base.

Thankfully, I found that pudding recipe. This pudding by Laura Miller creator of Raw Vegan not Gross is truly delicious!!! I remember the first Laura Miller video I saw on Tastemade. Watching her make the delicious food in her videos opened my eyes to a whole new world of options. It was exciting to learn that just because we could not have gluten, dairy or eggs we still had plenty of yummy food options.
