I was thrilled recently to have the opportunity to test out PPB powdered peanut butter in my kitchen, thanks to Hale Naturals! I had heard about powdered peanut butter prior to testing this product but I had never purchased it before or used it in any recipes. Over the last few weeks I’ve added the PPB to smoothies with chocolate protein powder and frozen bananas. I also subbed the PPB into my freezer fudge protein squares, replacing the oat flour which gave it a nice flavour. This recent recipe I created was specifically for my son Mattias because I’m always looking at ways to increase his healthy fat intake. What better way than with avocado pudding!
Mattias is quite an adventurous eater but for some reason he’s always hated avocados, even as a baby he spat them out. I don’t know why since he loves other green fruit and veggies and will eat them all by the handful, except avocados! They are such a great source for healthy fat, so I often sneak avocados into Matti’s food whenever it can be easily disguised, like in smoothies, sauces, and in this pudding recipe. The base for the pudding is blended ripe avocados which creates a smooth and creamy thick pudding. Add in some cacao powder, sweetener of choice, and a splash of non dairy milk, for a cleverly disguised plant based pudding. While I was whipping it up I decided to add in the powdered peanut butter for an extra flavour boost. After all chocolate and peanut butter just belong together.
Just before Easter weekend arrived, Mattias was browsing my Pinterest account online and saw a cute pudding idea, with a chocolate “carrot” planted in the chocolate “dirt” pudding. He thought it was so cool, so I surprised him last weekend with his very own chocolate “dirt” using this avocado pudding recipe and a few broken chocolate cookies. He was ecstatic! And most importantly he never knew he was actually eating avocados, shhh I’m keeping it a secret for now 😉
