Week 16: Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Time seems to just be flying by…I cannot believe the summer is over.  We just ended the 16th week of pregnancy.  Our fetus was the size of an avocado last week…Just look at that avocado in my hand.  It’s the darned cutest avocado I have ever seen…I just want to squeeze and love it…

Goochie goochie goo!

We have still been busy reorganizing the house to make a nursery out of our office. Lisa has been feeling great and no signs of nausea…just regular growth pains.  The bump isn’t quite to picture sharing status yet.  As soon as it is, I’ll post updated pictures. Neither of us have felt the baby move yet (and no flutters yet).  However, the baby’s heart beats faster when I talk while we’re using the doppler.  The baby either thinks I’m awesome or I’m scaring the meconium out him or her.

Now I know I’ve made a lot of desserts so far but Chocolate Avocado Pudding is just so great.  Avocados are full of folic acid for all you pregnant ladies and they contain a lot of other good things too!  Click here to read more about the benefits of avocados!

Blend all ingredients into a blender (or Vitamix) until smooth and creamy. You may need to add more agave nectar depending on the size of your avocado. It’s ready to eat immediately or you can also refrigerate. Top with coconut, nuts or fresh fruit!
