A pinch of sea salt

Instruction

1. Prepare the Pudding Base:

  • In a blender or food processor, combine the almond milk, ripe avocados, raw cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt.
  • Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust the sweetness by adding more maple syrup if desired.
  • Transfer the pudding to a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to let the flavors meld and the pudding set.

2. Prepare the Toppings:

  • While the pudding is chilling, prepare the kiwi and raspberries. Peel and slice the kiwis, and gently wash and pat dry the raspberries.
  • Measure out the Grainwell Puffed Amaranth, hulled hemp seeds, and cacao nibs.

3. Assemble the Pudding:

  • Once the pudding has set, remove it from the refrigerator.
  • Spoon the pudding into serving bowls or glasses.

4. Add the Toppings:

  • Sprinkle a generous amount of Grainwell Puffed Amaranth over the top of each serving of pudding.
  • Arrange the kiwi slices and raspberries on top of the pudding.
  • Sprinkle hulled hemp seeds and cacao nibs for added texture and flavor.

Serving Options:

  1. Serve the pudding immediately for a fresh and vibrant dessert.
  2. For an added touch, you can drizzle a little extra maple syrup or a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top.
  3. This pudding can also be served as a breakfast option. Layer it with your favorite granola and a dollop of coconut yogurt for a hearty and satisfying morning treat.
  4. Store any leftover pudding in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Keep the toppings separate until you are ready to serve to maintain their freshness and crunch.
