That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
Mmmh looks lovely.
Thank you for the lovely picture,.
I get it at Whole Foods..
Hope you can find some too...
Just ate my last avocado! Must dash out to get some!.
Thanks for the Picture...
Raw maple syrup can be made by repeatedly freezing and partially thawing raw maple sap. No heat is involved in this process. It's incredibly hard to find though...I'm amazed that Whole Foods carries it! Is it quite expensive?.
For a DIY version or just more info about the process, here's a link:.
I never would have thought to use Avocado in something sweet until I read it somewhere on this board or in Alissa's book! My missionary friend said they also use avocados in drinks in Indonesia with melted chocolate, sugar and milk. (Obviously we know how to make the raw substitues!!!)..
Can ya tell us what the brand is? pretty please..
Oh ya raeannasun!! each time I visit bali or any part of Indonesia for that matter, I would always ask for the avocado drink (they call it a-bo-card)...!! it is super yummy!! I was taught how to make it too, by the locals, but of course that was un-raw version and I am sure it would be easy to make it raw. Have not tried it but should I one day find out how which way gives it the closest taste to the 'original' as the Indonesian made (I am of Indonesian heritage.
) this will surely come up as a report... a good one to share!!..
What a beautiful presentation, I've never like the flavor of avocados, but this I could eat, and what a gorgeous color too...
I would love to, but I made it again yesterday and used up the last of the container. I will be going back to Whole Foods probably next week and will pick some up then. I will let you know then (if you don't mind waiting that long)..
In the meantime, you might try using just a bit more agave and add a little cinnamon to it...
...just let us know when you can..
That sounds so good! My computer is being dumb and I can't see your pic, but i'm sure it looks as good as it sounds. Hopefully I'll beable to get my hands on all the ingrediance to it..
It's making me hungry just thinking about pudding! And I just finished eating!..
I made this with Honey and Agar nector..
I am not a pudding person but I LOVED this!!! YUMMY. My first chocolate treat. I don't have raw carbo yet but will be ordering some...
OMG, Maraw, I just made this and it it DIVINE.
... I can't wait til my SAD husband gets home to have him try some (if there's any left.
)... I really enjoy simple recipes, so, thanks again.
For those who don't want to eat cacao, you can use carob. I believe that's what Alissa uses in the original recipe...
I don't have notes handy to tell you the proportions, but I accidentally discovered another way to make chocolate pudding the other day without using any avocado..
What I was working on was totally different, developing a raw version of a mole sauce... (pronounced mo-lay) you know, the Mexican sauce of bitter chocolate, chicken broth, and hot chile peppers that they serve with turkey and chicken?... anyway, I was so focused on getting the spices right... cinnamon, cumin, etc.... that when I hit a good flavor combination I stopped, scaled up the recipe, and made up a couple of quarts (for a restaurant special raw enchilada over the weekend), handed the sauce off to the line chef, and headed home. The next day we discovered that when refrigerated, the sauce had set up to a very thick pudding consistency, almost fudge, so thick we had to loosen it up with a lot of water to make it into a proper "sauce" consistency.
So I haven't worked this all out yet in detail, but if you want to experiment yourself, here's the basics....
Raw cocoa (and a bit of raw cocoa nibs to add a liitle more depth).
Cinnamon & vanilla & ground cloves.
Cashews (almonds or pecans would work too).
Process dry ingredients to a fine powder.
Slowly dd, while processing :.
Soaked raisins (soaked dates or figs would work too).
Agave nectar to desired sweeteness.
Soak water (if needed to adjust consistency).
Process until a satiny smooth thick liquid (2 or 3 minutes).
Once I have time to work out the proportions I'll post them. You too!..
Aisah: please post this ? the avocado drink (they call it a-bo-card)...!! sounds wonderful...
Where does everyone get their raw cocoa? The only place I've bought it is Natures First Law and they are out of stock now!..
A hint that bears repeating if you don't have any "raw" cacao, use raw carob (which is.
But that's a whole 'nuther subject that has many threads in the archives!.
