You can do WHAT with an avocado and banana?

May 10, 2015 2 min read

Bananas and avocados, two things you usually don’t see together in a recipe let alone a dessert. But consequently they are two items that mix very well together. When you mash bananas with avocados it makes a sort of pudding like consistency, I wasn’t the first one to think of making this mixture into a chocolate pudding but I did create my own recipe. This is a perfect dessert for vegans who don’t want to give up chocolate mousse or chocolate pudding. This is also a super easy dessert to make; it only requires a few ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to make. This avocado/banana pudding is a much healthier way to get your dessert fix. It doesn’t have any refined sugar only agave. Also no animals were harmed in the making of this pudding and no animal by-products were used either. You will need: 1 avocado 1 banana 3 tbsp cacao powder, unsweetened (can use cocoa powder if you don’t have cacao) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tbsp agave Preparation Procedures: 1. Combine avocado and banana in food processor (or blender) and grind until a smooth mixture. 2. Add cacao powder, vanilla and agave and grind again. 3. Serve and enjoy. You can also place this in the refrigerator and save it for later. This pudding makes about 2 cups or 2 servings, if you are throwing a party or making the pudding for more than 2 people feel free to double or triple the recipe. The best part about this dessert is the main ingredients are so good for you so you can pig out and not feel guilty afterward. Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium and vitamin C. They also have high levels of vitamins B, K and E. Avocados are high in oleric acid which has been shown to prevent breast cancer. Bananas on the other hand are a great source of potassium, vitamin B6 and manganese. Bananas are a great source of fiber, there is 3 grams of fiber in a medium banana and one-third of that fiber is soluble fiber, by eating bananas you can lower your risk of heart disease. Next time you are craving a super chocolaty and rich dessert grab an avocado and a banana and make some delicious, healthy, vegan pudding. You will get your dessert fix and not feel bad afterward.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
