Don’t worry…I’m only kinda kidding! 😉

If you guys are anything like me (and by the looks of the comments on Wednesday’s post, you are), the thought of anything rich and sugary sweet has your stomach turning somersaults right about now.

But how about a CLEAN dessert without the butter, sugar, or an impending tummy-ache?

And how about if it’s a little strange…but good?

Well that just makes it even better, right?!

Using stevia, this dessert is considered sugar-free, but if you don’t have access to stevia, I’d suggest going with xylitol or agave nectar. Both have low glycemic indexes and therefore cause little to no spikes in your blood sugar.

And with all that fiber? Let’s just say, it’ll help you with that post-Christmas detox! 😉

Yay for regularity!

Ok, I seriously can’t believe I just said that!

Regardless of what shape your gastrointestinal system is in right now, this makes one hell of a dessert, snack, or even a meal if combined with the right ingredients…

Maybe mixed with a little Greek yogurt? As a dip for apples? Or you could even thin it out and drizzle it over some protein pancakes!

Oh yeah, now we’re talking!

Have you ever tried avocado in a non-traditional way?
Don’t be scared. I promise it won’t taste like guacamole! It’s rich and creamy like butter…the perfect addition to smoothies, cakes, or even pancakes!

How are you doing bouncing back after all the holiday eating?
I’m still on my diet of protein shakes and juice…but I DID manage to get down a grilled chicken salad for dinner last night!

Yay for progress! 😉
