Summer Melon Avocado Pudding
From the Kitchen of Celestia French
This delicate pudding is creamy and not overly sweet. It’s high in healthy fats and low in sugar, and makes the perfect addition to any summery meal. Bon appétit! Serves 2
1 avocado, just the flesh
2 cups ripe de-rinded melon (honeydew or Santa Claus melons are nice because their pale green flesh lends to the delicate hue of the pudding)
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Teeny pinch salt
*Optional: honey to taste if you like it even sweeter
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. You might need to stop the blender and stir the ingredients with a spatula a couple times just to ensure even blending. Place in a container and allow to chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes (if you can wait that long!).
Serve with a little wedge of lemon…squeeze a few drops of lemon juice over your bowl and enjoy! Dress up your pudding with edible flowers such as nasturtiums, marigolds, or pansies.
