Healthy Chocolate Pudding

I grew up eating as many meals as I could while sitting on my Grandpa’s lap. He always had the best food on his plate. He would always choose the dark meat, everything came with sauerkraut, and he LOVED butter! This was back when eating all of those foods was not generally accepted as “healthy.” My how times have changed since the “low-fat,” white meat chicken-eating days of the 80’s and 90’s! 

One food I remember eating, in particular, was pudding. He said that pudding was the best medicine for everything that ailed you. What kid can argue with that! Whether or not there was any truth to what he said, I always wanted pudding when I was feeling sick, or even when I was feeling blue. To this day, eating pudding puts a smile on my face and takes me back to those days sitting on his knee at the dinner table while lapping up butter and pudding!

So fast forward to today: four kids later and following a Paleo-ish diet (we do eat raw dairy). When my kiddos are under the weather, I whip up a batch of magical healthy chocolate pudding too! Only my version is a little different.

My pudding actually DOES have health-promoting ingredients!

  • Raw honey: honey can help reduce coughs and sore throats. It contains vitamins and minerals (important to replenish when kiddos are under the weather or throwing up), and it can even help relieve constipation! If you can find local honey it also helps with allergies!
  • Avocado: filled with healthy fats and more vitamins and minerals
  • Cocoa: full of antioxidants, and can even help lift your mood
  • Bananas: full of potassium (important with vomiting or diarrhea), are known to be anti-inflammatory, and can even help boost serotonin production (your feel-good neurotransmitter)
  • Coconut Oil: the lauric acid found in coconut oil can kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi
  • Sea Salt: important minerals and trace minerals

  1. Ok, so I’m an old lady and can handle just so much technology. I can save to my computer or print. I can not Pin it, because I will never find it again.

    1. On Pinterest, you can make your own board for each pin. This one can be named “Healthy Goodies”, another can be “veggie dishes” and so on. That makes it easier for it to be found quickly.

  2. Made this tonite and was surprised by how good it tasted! I think next time though I will cut back on the honey, seemed a little overpowering to me. I would never of thought of avocados but it tastes surprisingly good!

  3. Hello Kate,

    you write ‘Cocoa: full of antioxidants’ but did you know that the cocoa that you link is ‘Dutch processed (with alkali)’ and so looses most of its antioxidants?

    (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18710243 :
    ‘The average total flavanol contents were 34.6 +/- 6.8 mg/g for the natural cocoas, 13.8 +/- 7.3 mg/g for the lightly processed cocoas, 7.8 +/- 4.0 mg/g for the medium processed cocoas, and 3.9 +/- 1.8 mg/g for the heavily processed cocoa powders.’?)

    Anyway, this recipe and the chocolate paleo cake are the joy of my children, thank you!
