This plant-based kiwi lime pudding is really quick and easy to make. The key is finding avocados that are ripe and ready to eat!
Avocados are good for maintaining healthy hormone balance, as they contain essential fats and fatty acids that your body needs. You will find a high amount of omega-3 (in the form of alpha-linolenic acid) in avocados, which helps to look after your heart.
Whilst the calories in avocados appears high at first glance, this is mainly due to the large amount of omega-3 fatty acids they contain, so they are well worth including regularly in your diet. You can read more about healthy fats to include in your diet in our article: fats for nutrition, health and weight loss. We share lots of avocado tips, including how to pick a ripe avocado, in our earlier article: amazing avocados.
Cooking tip: Make this dessert as close to dinner time as you can, as once you cut into avocado it starts to go brown. If you do need to make it earlier, the lime juice helps to keep the lovely green colour for longer. I also recommend sealing the dessert into an airtight container. If it does turn a little brown, then use a small spoon to scrape the top layer off. The taste stays the same, it just looks more visually appealing.
Kiwi lime pudding recipe
Calories: 1,406 total, 175 per serving
2 large ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
4 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
3 kiwi, peeled and cut into quarters
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp rice syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
Optional: 4 tbsp water
Place the avocado, lime juice, kiwi and rice syrup in the food processor. Blend until smooth. Add water a little at a time, if needed. You want to create a nice smooth consistency.
Place in a fridge and keep covered until ready to serve.
Serve a fairly small portion as it is quite rich.
This dessert is lovely served with a side of freshly made fruit salad (fresh raspberries, strawberries, fig or blueberries) and a slice of kiwi on the top.
