SOMETIMES EVEN WELLNESS PROS need a sugar fix. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to get one without the guilt. Take this Chocolate Avocado Pudding from celebrity chef and nutritionist Serena Poon’s blog Serena Loves (serenaloves.com). Dark chocolate, honey and cinnamon will surely satisfy your sweet tooth, and avocado is filled with potassium, fiber and healthy fatty acids to keep you on track. “I usually recommend a simple, unsweetened piece of dark chocolate with at least 72 percent cacao and only a few clean ingredients,” says Poon, who prefers raw, organic options whenever possible. And if chocolate isn’t your thing, she suggests swapping in grapes or other frozen fruit to add some sweetness. Whatever you choose, this fast five-minute recipe holds the best of both worlds.
