Valentines Day Healthy Option

Happy Valentines Day!  Today has been a busy one so I just thought I'd stop in briefly to share a few things with you!

MY WORKOUT:  Today's workout was a sweaty kick-boxing session- right from my living room! I used this workout.  I burned 450 calories on my Nike Fuel Band so I know it was a good one!

V-DAY SEXY DESSERT: Next, I wanted to share a healthy dessert option for valentines day that I whipped up for Bryan and I to enjoy later tonight.  The key ingredient may surprise you...  It's avocados!  Yup, I made a dark chocolate pudding with avocados.  It has all the flavor of a deliciously indulgent dessert without all the bad ingredients.  I tried it and it is amazingly delicious, you can't even tell there's avocados in it! ;-)

Secret Ingredient Dark Chocolate Pudding
1 ripe Medium Sized Avocado
1/2c Pure Maple syrup
1/2c Cocoa Powder (I used Hershey's dark)
1/4c Almond Milk (can use any kind of milk)
1tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1tsp Pure Almond Extract
3-5oz Dark Chocolate Chips or Candy Bar Shavings (plus more for garnish)
Whipped Cream (optional garnish)
Mix all the ingredients in a food processor and refrigerate at least 1 hour prior to serving.
Top with whipped cream or powdered sugar (as show below) Enjoy!
Have you ever tried avocados in pudding before?
Do you like Chocolate?


  1. I'm going to have to try that workout for the next time I'm stuck inside!!

  2. Anything that has both avocados and maple syrup in it must be, by definition, the best thing ever. I'm definitely going to have to try that recipe out. Way to go with the super hardcore kickboxing session! Sounds like you earned your pudding. :)

  3. Hi Hannah,
    Love your blog and commitment to faith! Thanks for visiting my blog. Here is the response to your question in case you didn't see it.

    Well yes, I guess I have created a workout on the trampoline, but sometimes I just jump. I like combining some weights and core work to change things up. My favorite way to watch the Olympics! Hmm, I think you've given me an idea for a post, thank you!

    1. Thanks! I can't wait to read your post :-)
