I got this recipe from a fellow FPIES mom who adapted it from other recipes found online, so I can't take credit for it and neither can my friend, she said. Regardless, it's a simple recipe and could definitely be tweaked to suit your needs and taste.
Ready for the big reveal?
1 avocado (a ripe one, unlike what's seen in my photo)
Cocoa powder (as in pure cocoa, not a chocolate powder with other ingredients)
Pure maple syrup
For Myra's, I used 2 teaspoons cocoa powder and 1/2-3/4 teaspoon maple syrup.
Mix together and enjoy! If you have a safe milk, you could add that. Myra can have coconut, so I could have mixed that in, but she was growing impatient so I just went with it. Of course, it does taste different than chocolate pudding from a box. Myra gobbled it up and it's full of healthy fats, fiber, flavonoids, antioxidants, and more.
Note: I think it's universally known that chocolate is not safe for dogs. We learned last year that cocoa is actually worse than chocolate. So, be sure to keep your furry friends safe while your kid gets messy with the pudding.
