I received my first delivery of CSA veggies today! You’ll have to wait until tomorrow to hear more about that, though… Because I want to share a delicious pudding recipe tonight.
1/4 cup almond milk (I used unsweetened plain, but other flavors would work too)
scant 1/4 cup black beans
1/2 banana, mashed
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons agave nectar (up this a bit if you have a sweet tooth)
Using a small mixer, blend together the almond milk and black beans until smooth. Add the mashed banana, OJ, and agave nectar, and mix again. Serve chilled.
This was so good. I started out with the intention of using avocado (which came in the CSA delivery) to make an avocado pudding, but it turned out that it wasn’t ripe and I had to change my plans! This dessert is smooth and creamy, and the OJ adds a delightful but subtle zest to its flavor. I love the idea of beans in dessert, and this recipe does not disappoint. I finished the whole bowl 🙂
