Raw Chocolate PuddingOf all the recipes I've done over the years, this is hands down the best:

Raw Chocolate Pudding

Because it's so incredibly simple! And because it is filled with nourishing, energizing superfoods. AND because the final product is so so so much greater than the sum of its parts. Somehow, a delicious alchemy happens when you blend these ingredients together, and the end result will satisfy your craving for something sweet, rich and decadent, but still deliver a dose of health. I personally savor a few spoonfuls in the afternoon with a cup of green tea. Plus, my kids adore it.
