Chocolate Pea Pudding/Dip

Yup, you heard me.


In a dessert.

Seems nasty right?

But just look at the picture for a second.

How about now?

You guys are just going to have to take a leap of faith and trust me on this one.

Please do.

I’m sure some of you have tried black bean brownies, spinach smoothies, and avocado mousse before. Just think of it as another “secret ingredient” recipe. In a contest with my Chocolate Avocado Mousse, I honestly don’t know who’d win.

It tastes that darn good.

As an additional bonus, this pudding/dip is FILLING (not that it stops me from finishing my portion 🙂 )To make sure my taste buds had not gone out of whack, I had some family members taste test this without telling them what was inside. Nobody could guess anything out of the ordinary.

Gotta love the power of disguise.

NOTE: I recommend using frozen peas for this for a cool and refreshing taste.


Chocolate Pea Pudding/Dip


2 cups frozen peas

1/4 cup organic pure maple syrup

1/4 cup raw cacao powder

2 tbsp UNrefined coconut oil, melted (do NOT omit)

1/2 tbsp vanilla

1/2 tsp salt


Place peas in a strainer and briefly run under warm water. Transfer peas to a food processor. Add in the rest of ingredients and process until smooth and peas are no longer detectable.
