Mesquite Avocado Pudding

by lori on March 5, 2010

Hello friends,

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!

Hope every one is enjoying their day. We are really excited because we finally have a nice warm weekend here in NC which is great for the farmers markets.

We got some questions regarding our workouts – mainly with the Tracy Anderson mat method. This is the end of our 2nd week of doing her exercises which we do about 5 times a week. And we are starting to feel like we are getting stronger and getting a little bit more definition in our bodies. We know it is a slow process along with everything else in life ;) but we thoroughly enjoy her fitness concept. So we plan to continue it!  We have not been doing much running lately just about once a week. Yoga about 2-3 times a week!

After yesterdays Tracy’s session we enjoyed another great post workout pudding! Similar to ones you saw yesterday!  Love all the different combinations we seem to be just throwing together, yet all have some main ingredients like lemon or lime and something green to help alkalize us!

As I mentioned yesterday we created a delicious avocado pudding that we just absolutely LOVED! Plan to make this at least once a week. You do need a special ingredient to make it.. sunflower lecithin or any emulsifier would do like guar gum, etc. Though we personal love sunflower lecithin we use it in many of our recipes. Love the results it provides puddings and smoothies. What it does is that it combines all the ingredients together and gives a nice lightness to the puddings. It helps provide puddings especially this one, such creamy, and lightness that it feels like you are almost eating air!

All these shirts that we have been showing that are for sale are from our older sister who just launched her own organic high quality t-shirt company! We are so excited for our sister because these has been a life time dream and project of hers and now she is finally doing it!! She just needed a little extra push from us to get it up and running ;)

We hope every one likes the shirts and they will be added to our online store sometime today! So get those orders in :)   Please help spread the word about our sisters new t-shirt company called Raw Threads!

And speaking of wonderful lady entrepreneurs following their dreams check out the ever so lovely Eating Bender as she embarks on her journey of starting her own company Pursuing our Passion! I wish her and her business partner Jill all the success. Owning a business is a very challenging thing to pursue but one that is worth it in the end, especially if it something you are truly passionate about! We know Jenn and Jill will do great!

Hope everyone is following their dreams and loving life to the fullest

Till next time,

Lori

Thank you SO much for the link love, ladies! I am honored to receive such compliments from successful entrepreneurs :) Can’t wait to share our experiences with you!

Mesquite avocado pudding sounds so intriguing! And I absolutely LOVE your shirts — how amazing that your older sister is also a fabulous entrepreneur. My favorite is the blue “race you to the castle” but they are all wonderful!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Those t-shirts are so cute! I love the first two – “raw” and “fueled by plants”.

Have a great weekend, ladies! Glad it’s going to be warm where you are — me too, and I can’t wait to get outdoors.

Thanks for all the info on the fermented foods! I ordered my kefir grains and scoby and can’t wait to get started. Buying the kombucha was getting expensive!

Which Tracy Anderson workouts are you doing? I’m doing some of her stuff available online, including her webisodes. Looking forward to getting her DVDs when I’m in the US again. Her approach is so interesting and I’m seeing results.
BTW I LOVE what you two are up to. You’re doing exactly what I want to do. On my way!

Sorry to weigh in late, but this pudding looks spectacular! I don’t have mesquite, but I’ve got carob a’plenty :)

Pure2 March 8, 2010 at 6:00 am

Gena, thanks! Carob would work just fine, we love putting either mesquite or carob into avocado puddings :)
