Add all ingredients to a blender, adding in enough liquid to get a thick, drinkable consistency. Pour into 4 glasses, thermoses, mugs---whatever you prefer! Serves 4.
Use the tamp to ensure all is well blended. You might have to stop the blender to scrape down the sides.
Note that you can sprout the black beans before cooking them, which further enhances their digestibility. You can also remove the black skins from the beans, if you like.
Try this recipe with other beans such as chickpeas, pinto and cannellini. Go for a bean that has a neutral taste.
For a pudding version, you want a thick consistency, so stick to 1.5 cups liquid.
The avocado makes this recipe delish, so feel free to add 1 more avocado if you dare!!
Note that you can try omitting the cocoa and vanilla, especially as most protein powders come flavored. Idea: add in the chocolate-flavored protein powder and taste test before adding in cocoa/vanilla.
Similarly, instead of the stevia blend, you can try using a few drops of liquid stevia. Although not sugar-free, a few TBsp of maple syrup or coconut sugar can be used as well. Taste test and adjust accordingly.
One last note: feel free to add in superfoods like greens powder, maqui berry, mesquite, maca, chia seeds, etc. and powdered herbs (e.g. ashwagandha, dandelion, marshmallow, etc.) for extra nutrition. The cacao will help to mask any unpleasant taste---but you can also add in more of that antioxidant rich superfood for an extra chocolatey experience!
Absolte final tip: if making just for yourself, store remainders in fridge up to 3 days. You'll now have a protein shake/pudding ready to guzzle/eat for the next few days!
As always, Enjoy :)
