Shake up your morning with my creamy, rich, and delcious Avocado Pudding! 

 

If there's one thing I've learned from developing a healthier lifestyle, it is that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. I used to ALWAYS skip breakfast. Not because I didn't like it, but because I never had time in the morning. When I first started exercising on a regular basis, I started slowly and made it my goal to eat breakfast at least 3 times a week. When I started to doing that, I noticed some serious benefits. I experienced higher energy levels, better portion control and a faster metabolism, all from simply eating breakfast. Now, I just can't start my day without having a nutritious breakfast first thing in the morning - remember small steps lead to big change!

 

That being said, I don't always have time to cook a big meal and if I just have a piece of fruit, it's definitely not enough to keep my hunger at bay until lunchtime. That's why I came up with the perfect solution: Avocado Breakfast Pudding. It's simple, quick, versatile, and most importantly, delicious! Avocados are one of my all time favorite foods and whether I'm cooking breakfast, lunch, or dinner, I absolutely love incorporating them into my meals in different of ways. In case you didn't know already know, avocados packed with tons of healthy fats + vitamins and have a ton of health benefits! So if you're bored of breakfast smoothies or your simply looking for a new way to use avocados in the kitchen, I've got your back. 

 

For my Avocado Breakfast Pudding, all you're going to need is a blender, a few simple ingredients, and just 10 minutes of your time. See the recipe below:

  • Don't waste the other half of the banana, freeze second half so you can use it for other smoothies! 
  • You can use any milk you desire, Almond Milk, Coconut Milk, or Soy Milk add thickness, but if you prefer regular milk or skim, just be sure to use a little bit more banana to reach desired thickness.
