Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and de-pitted
  • ¼ cup pistachios, pre-soaked 15 mins in warm water {or longer in cold water}, then strained
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 5 tbsp water or coconut water
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp rose water
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Optional: 1 handful of baby spinach leaves {add if you want to adjust the color if your pistachios are not very vibrant — I did not need to add any to the pudding in the pictures, but I had some gorgeous-looking pistachios to work with}
  • Garnish: more chopped pistachios + salt flakes

 

Instructions:

  1. Place all ingredients, except garnish, in a high power blender and blend everything into a smooth consistency. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed.
  2. Once the mixture is smooth, transfer the pudding into 2 small jars or glasses cover and place in the freezer for about 30 minutes to an hour to chill. When ready to eat, garnish with extra pistachios {chopped or whole} and sprinkle with some coarse salt flakes, and enjoy!
