High on Avocado & Low Carb Chocolate Pudding with Peanut Butter Ripples

***I no longer use xylitol or Splenda. Please keep in mind xylitol is poisonous to dogs. I would suggest you use a natural sweetener like raw honey.
Generally I feel I’m a pretty happy individual.  Of course I get grumpy around you know when.  I’m soo in love with guacamole that I have been eating an avocado a day for at least a week.  Well, I started getting this inner burst of extreme happiness.  Oh my!  It’s overwhelming.  I feel so high on happiness.  I know fat is nature’s Prozac.  Avocados are high in fat.  I put two and two together. 
I decided to do some research into this magical fruit.
I typed into Google the keyword “Avocados Mood” and this is what came up:
Basically to sum up what all these articles say:
I’m feeling pretty darn happy because avocados are dopamine-enhancing foods (like chocolate), they contain omega fatty acids 3 which is another mood enhancer.  I’ve been eating a whole avocado everyday so I’m giving my body a whole lot of happiness chemicals!
Here’s a cute and simple recipe that will also make you happy!!!

Low Carb Chocolate Pudding with Peanut Butter Ripples Recipe:
·         2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa
·         1 tbsp of sweetener of choice (I used xylitol)
·         ¼ cup of full fat coconut milk (Aroy-D brand)
·         ¼ cup of natural peanut butter (or a nut butter)
1.      In a bowl mix cocoa powder, sweetener, and coconut milk together until smooth.
2.      Add the peanut butter.
3.      Gobble it up!
Check out those ripples of peanut butter.  Almost gone :)
P.S. this would make a great ice cream!
P.P.S. You could add mashed up avocado to this recipe too!
