If you’re anything like me, sugar and empty calories makes you fell gross. Of course it tastes delicious and always seems like a good idea at the time, but a few hours later, my brain gets foggy and I turn into Linda Evans getting my ass handed to me by my gut, Joan Collins style. “You bitch!”
Of course it’s unrealistic to think that I’ll never eat another piece of junk food. To be honest I have very little self-control, so sometimes I have to trick my taste buds into being satisfied with something healthy. A great example of a healthy, yet satisfyingly chocolaty desert is Spicy Chocolate Avocado Pudding. 95% healthy. 100% delightful.
I like my chocolate pudding pretty spicy, so you might want to adjust the spice here to your taste or even switch it up and try it with cinnamon instead.
