Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

Chocolate Avocado Pudding (Transitional Recipe)

We have decided to include some recipes on the site for those either transitioning off of GAPS or transitioning on.  We feel these recipes still embody the spirit of GAPS by focusing on real, nutrient-dense foods as ingredients, but with one or more ingredient that is not legal on the full diet. 

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

This delicious and creamy pudding works well as a snack, a breakfast, or even as frosting!


2 avocados (ripe but not over-ripe)
1/4 cup plus 2 T honey
1/4 cup plus 2 T cocoa or carob powder
3 T coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla


Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.  Taste and adjust flavors if needed.

NOTE:  The first time you make this, you may want to begin with just the 1/4 cup of honey and carob or cocoa and see how you like the flavor.  It is easy to add more of these ingredients later.
