    The final installment in my series of posts for Tabasco UK is pudding! I'm not a massive dessert person, and seeing as I spend my life constantly on a diet, I wanted to create something heathy-ish! I've recently seen lots of chocolate recipes which use avocado as a healthy alternative, and seeing as chilli and chocolate work so well I thought I'd give it a go! 

    Avocados are packed full of vitamin E, iron and potassium and although technically high in fat - it's full of good fats (monounsaturated) -  the kind which are believed to lower bad cholesterol.  It doesn't sound like it would work well in a pudding but it gives a really nice creamy consistancy and once mixed with the chocolate you won't notice it at all!

    I used this recipe from Nadia Lim and adapted it slightly by adding my Tabasco to give the mousse a fiery kick - give it a go for yourself and let me know what you think!

    Chocolate Avocado Pudding
    Healthy Chocolate Avocado Pudding
    What you'll need: 
    • 2 ripe avocados
    • 200g dark chocolate (I used a 60% cocoa)
    • 3 tablespoons runny honey
    • 200 ml coconut milk
    • 2 tsp Tabasco sauce
    • 1/2 chopped red chilli 
    Chocolate Avocado Pudding

    Break up your chocolate and melt using a bain-marie - I use a mixing bowl placed over a saucepan of boiling water.

    Put your avocado, coconut milk, chilli, honey and melted chocolate in a blender and  whizz together until it's nice and smooth. 

    Spoon the mixture into serving glasses and chill in the fridge for around 10-15 minutes. 

    Take out when you're ready to eat, and garnish with fresh strawberries!
