They (I don’t care who!) say it is beneficial to eat a little dark chocolate every day, so here is my “go to” recipe when the need for something chocolatey arises. A Vitamix will allow you to whip up this delectable dessert in less than 1 minute, but if you haven’t made the investment in this powerful machine yet, any high speed blender or food processor will do. I know there are many raw pudding recipes out there but what makes this recipe so unique is the Grade B maple syrup (not raw, but rich in vitamins and minerals). Although agave and other grades of syrup will work, Grade B maple syrup gives the pudding a richer, almost caramel-like, flavor. Prepare to be amazed!
I was raised on sweets. My grandparents had a colossal candy cabinet and bowls of colorful sugary goodness all over the house. It's almost part of my DNA, the sweets. So even though I have shifted into a greater awareness of what I put into my body, there is no need to ignore my pal, Mr. Sweet Tooth. I have played around with many recipes and have finally Frankensteined the tastiest Banana Pudding Parfait (cue the lightning bolt). This recipe incorporates all natural, enzyme-rich ingredients that your body wants, including natural sugars, so take any guilt and kick it out the door.
There are three main components to this recipe:
Crumble Topping, Vanilla Whipped Cream and Banana Pudding. The Vanilla Whipped Cream is optional, but super delicious if you are up for opening a young coconut, which is easier than it sounds.

This makes a delicious pudding for breakfast, dessert, snack, whatever! THis is by far my most favorite raw recipe! It also makes a great pie filling with various berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, even pineapple).
