Quick story time

I’ll be travelling to Salt Lake City for the Everything Food Conference on Wednesday. It’s a huge friggin thing with a lot of freakin people, and just glancing at the schedule makes me weary. Being on and networking exhaust me since I am an extroverted introvert (or is it an introverted extrovert? ), so doing anything like this requires a significant time commitment.
I’ll be rooming with the amazing Whitney Bond and hope to meet up with a slew of other gorgeous women I’ve been online friends with over the previous several years.
I’m even going out on Saturday evening to eat at his son’s restaurant with an old business friend.
PLUS I purchased new business cards so that when people get home, they can look at them and think, Yeah, I don’t remember this lady at all, Oh, goodness, SHE, or her? I usually think that no one will remember me since I am not noteworthy.
When a stranger asks, “Hello, Bluebirdcafela.com, how are you?” I’m in a state of fear, trying to figure out what I done to lead this individual to know who I am.
I had never attended a food conference before, so I decided to go big or go home. In this scenario, I’ll go large and then go home. My flight is an overnight that arrives at about 5:45AM on Sunday, so that will definitely be a very productive Sunday for me, what with all the zombie-ing and sleeping and such.
I’m definitely looking forward to this event, and I’ve been encouraged to bring an extra bag for goodies. I’m not going to pay the checked bag cost simply to bring home free goods (because, hey, that defeats the idea of free stuff), but I’m hoping there’s something chocolate in there somewhere. Because I adore chocolate, sweetbabyjesus.
This can satisfy your chocolate cravings
It is really uncommon for me not to want chocolate. Honestly. You could ask me what I’m wanting right now, and I’m 99.99% sure it’ll be something chocolaty. Just an hour ago, when I realized I needed hot chocolate on this beautiful 75-degree day. Dark, decadent hot chocolate. Of course, with whipped cream.
It makes no difference what time of day it is, how hot it is, or where I am. Chocolate is in my blood, I swear to you. I’ve never truly requested a doctor to do a test that I should.
I’ve cooked this chocolate avocado pudding so many times that I’ve lost count, and I can’t believe I’ve never shared the recipe with you. I have mango chia pudding and chocolate cherry pomegranate chia pudding on hand, but nothing surpasses a delicious chocolate pudding in my opinion. I’m not suggesting there isn’t a place and time for such things; there absolutely is.
I’m also not suggesting that a fantastic dark chocolate bread pudding shouldn’t get some attention every now and then. That does, but not when I’m seeking for a rich, dark, creamy pudding that takes nothing more than a quick dip of a spoon to fulfill my culinary fantasies.
Adjust the sweetness as you see fit
The great thing about this pudding is that you can adjust the degree of sweetness without substantially altering the final product. As in, if you don’t want it as sweet, use less maple syrup or honey and it will still be thick, creamy, and wonderful.
I like to include chia seeds for a little more nourishment, but you may leave them out if you choose.
What should you top this pudding with?
I prefer to top this with fresh berries, but you can add anything you like or keep it simple! It can easily stand on its own. I then added salted date caramel, crumbled Oreos, pretzel bits, small chocolate chips, and whipped cream on the top.
And by that, I clearly mean that I ate it with each of them individually rather than all at once because I wanted to feel like I was at Pinkberry. Obviously.
Not a fan of chocolate, but still need some pudding in your life?
- Bowl of Delicious’ butterscotch pudding is wonderful. I can tell you from personal experience.
- If you like key lime pie, you’ll enjoy Baker by Nature’s creamy key lime pudding!
- I’m obsessed with lemons right now, so this simple lemon pudding is calling my name.
- Dress up for this Cabernet strawberry rhubarb pudding from Vintage Kitty.
