Carob Banana Avocado Pudding



Another breakfast treat. Smooth and silky avocado blended with carob powder, a few bananas, dates and a drizzle of agave syrup. This recipe is not completely raw because I used roasted carob powder. But it was still very decadent and delicious. Reminded me of chocolate banana creme pie!

Carob Banana Avocado Pudding

8 dates, pitted
1 large avocado, pitted
2 large ripe bananas
3 heaping tsp (or more) of carob powder
drizzle or two of agave syrup

Combine all in a blender and blend until smooth.

Hi Kim - This has nothing to do with your great breakfast ideas but I didn't see where to get ahold of you on the blog. I got the cookbook I won from you today with the pretty card - today was a good mail day! It looks wonderful - just wanted to thank you and let you know how much I enjoy your blog!

Thanks again!

This pudding sounds so delicious!! I have to try it soon. I haven't seen carob powder before. Where can I find it?

I found toasted carob powder at Rainbow Acres health food store (on Washington Blvd). It was a good price. I've seen it at whole foods but the only have raw carob powder and it's very expensive. If you can't find it, just use unsweetened cocoa powder.

That sure does look good!

This looks great - I need to try the combo of avocado and carob or cocoa. The breakfast pudding looks so good too!

This was a pretty good recipe. The flavor is yummy, but I would recommend against using a blender - the ingredients get stuck and never really blend up smooth enough. I think a food processor would do the trick a lot better.

I made this and it is SO good! We substituted cocoa for the carob & left off the extra agave. YUM! Thanks for the recipe!
