Avocado’s are filled with monounsaturated fats, which lead to an increase in the production and release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is critical for learning and memory. The loss of acetylcholine production in the brain leads to the memory problems associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
- 1 - medium ripe avocado

- 3 Enjoy immediately or store in a tightly sealed container for up to 24 hours.
Tips:Consumption Options: This recipe can nourish your body as a mid day snack , savoury breakfast or a tart dessert.
- I like to enjoy this recipe chilled in the summertime and at room temperature in the winter.
- If you are enjoying this in the summer, keep your avocados in the fridge (once they are ripe) until it times to blend.
- If you are enjoying this in the winter, keep your avocados on the countertop until it’s time to blend.
- Blender Options: I usually whip this up as a single serving. I like to use my Magic Bullet blender rather than my large blender, as I find you lose too much of the pudding at the bottom of the container. If you only have a large blender, I would use a hand mixer instead to ensure you get every last bite of this delicious recipe.
- Take it up a notch: Sometimes I like to add 1/2 tsp of Organic Traditions Spirulina powder to kick it up a notch for detoxification. Try this after a night of indulging and/or drinking to help support the liver.
