Looking for a fun dessert? Try this delicious chocolate avocado peanut butter pudding!
I feel like this title needs a “y’all!” at the end for some reason. Doesn’t it just sound better with a southern accent? After spending a few years in the deep south for college, I must say, I have an affinity for deep Southern drawls. I have no idea why, I just love em. Whenever I’m…drunk and pretending to be from another region and/or country, I always whip out my southern accent first, followed by my dashing London accent (just ask Jackie about it).
I’m pretty sure, though, in all my years in Georgia, there wasn’t much chocolate avocado puddin’ eating. My friends and I were more of the “ramen noodles, McDonalds, Bud Light” kind of food group people. I mean, the only avocados I saw back then were smashed in the guacamole they served at our infamous Mexican restaurant El Som. Even though I was 10 (okay, fine, 20) pounds lighter back then, I didn’t cook. And I certainly didn’t sit around thinking of ways to put avocados and the new Weight Watchers Brownie Bliss Bars into a unique dessert.
It’s funny, I actually had a few months where I did cook. I thought “Hey, I’ve always loved food. Why don’t I try my hands at cooking?” I even made a giant bowl of weird spaghetti/noodles for when my older brother came to visit. He looked at it and said “Um, I’ll pass.” I think that was my sign to go back to what I knew how to do back then, write, boss people around and drink wine. Looking back, I don’t think I had the heart. I wanted to cook because I was scared to find a job outside of college. I didn’t want to cook because I loved it more than anything in the world, which is why I do it now.
Life’s funny, you know? You think back to who you were just a few years ago and it’s like looking into the face of a stranger. If I met Georgia Southern Claire today, she’d hardly recognize me. And when she finally realized it was future her, I’m pretty sure the first thing out of her mouth was “God, I’ve really let myself go.” I’m kidding, kind of. I hope she’d be proud, that skinny, sassy little brainiac.
