One thing that was highly recommended on Diet Wise Elimination diet was no sugar and even sugar substitutes!
So yesterday was the first day we had no stevia!! gasp
It has been a hard breakup for us because we love our stevia, but we have been enjoying fruit again when we need something sweet.
We created our first no stevia avocado pudding. Avocado pudding is something we love to eat almost daily, so making it non sweet was a challenge. but it was a challenge we were happy to figure out
Pure2raw No Stevia Mint Carob Avocado Pudding
- 2 avocados
- 1/4 cup raw carob powder
- 1/2 cup cucumber, skinned
- 1/2 – 1 teaspoon spirulina
- 1 tsp peppermint extract (alcohol free)
Blend everything up in the blender till creamy! The spirulina is optional we just do it for more nutritional value.
The carob and mint really helped with flavor and being non sweet. The cucumber was added just for water, could always do a little water instead.
We created this recipe because we were craving something “dessert-like” and this is what we came up created while still following our food elimination plan. To even our surprise it was not that bad. Knowing ahead of time that it was not going to be sweet helped There was a slight hint of mint with a little carob but not over powering. A fairly simple creamy pudding.
We are ending day two of our food elimination diet and are proud that we have been able to say no to things. We both are feeling tired, foggy head, etc we know it might be some detox symptoms as well as withdrawal from caffeine and sugar. Our spirits are still up! We keep reminding ourselves why we are doing this – to feel better! We know it will happen soon
