2-Ingredient Chocolate Pudding
« on: December 15, 2017, 11:18:46 am »
Hi guys,

Christmas is very near... After a long time I am here today to share with you a very sweet, healthy and easy recipe. No refined sugar, no refined oil... Only persimmons and cacao powder... This could be a game changer when you aim to eat healthier but crave for something sweet. ;)

As some of you know I live in a small town in Italy. Our town becomes a persimmon paradise in this time of the year. You can see persimmon trees anywhere you go.

I am lucky enough to have friends with persimmon trees in their garden and some days back I've been given so many of them. So I've decided to prepare this easy peasy dessert.

VERY IMPORTANT TIP: We need only two ingredients for the recipe. Some very RIPE persimmons and unsweetened cacao powder. It is essential to use ripe persimmons in order to obtain the sweetness and the consistency we want in our pudding. Because there is a huge difference between ripe and unripe persimmon fruits in regard to taste and the texture!

As ripe persimmons have darker color, gel-like consistency and are very sweet, unripe fruits are, instead, harder and astringent because of their high tannin content. As they mature the tannin gradually disappears and the fruit gets sweeter and more aromatic.

If your persimmons are not ripe enough you can let them ripen at home. When they are ready the flesh will become completely soft, almost gel-like.
 
 Here comes a tip from my mother in law to speed up the ripening process: Put your persimmons on a plate with their stem side down. Place 2 - 3 apples among persimmons. Put the plate in a bag and place it in a dark place at room temperature, for example inside a cupboard, until the fruits are ripe enough.

I've got this recipe from my dear friend Andrea who told me to use 1 tsp of cacao powder per persimmon.
 I prepared this pudding with 7 persimmons. It was enough for 7 people. Here are the exact ingredients..
 
Ingredients:
7 very RIPE persimmons ==> 1.150 g
7 tsp organic no sugar added cacao powder ==> 50 g

Preparation:

    Wash and gently peel persimmons.

    Place peeled persimmons and cacao powder in TM Bowl and blend until smooth for about 40 seconds, gradually increasing the speed to 10.

    Transfer the mixture into serving cups. Store them in the fridge for at least 3 hours before you serve.

    Store in the fridge for up to 2 days.


Enjoy...

Hello farfallina, lovely to hear from you again.  I am a persimmon lover but we can only buy them in February - May here in Australia. This recipe sounds very interesting, 2 ingredients, wow.  It will be worth trying when the fruit starts to appear here.  Thanks for sharing such a simple recipe with us.
