Continuing extra light theme.

Once you are done with your extra light soup 😉 you are ready for a dessert. Well, if you are of course. Probably it would be weird  to have a dessert straight after soup.  Better instead! haha 🙂

Any way! A terrific chocolatiest, lightest and healthiest dessert is in town! Please welcome Choco Chestnut Pudding.

Ingredients:

  • 50 gr dark chocolate (70+% cacao)
  • 100 gr cooked chestnuts (I use this ones) Attanzione: dont buy a chestnut mix. It is salty – for savoury dishes!
  • 1 tb. sp. cocoa powder
  • 5 whole pitted dates (or, if you want a Low GI version, use figs, prunes or blueberries!)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes (can be also called desiccated coconut)
Preparation:
  1. Break the chocolate into pieces and melt slowly in a double boiler and set aside.
  2. Puree the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Add the melted chocolate and pulse until all the ingredients are combined.
  4. Add about 1/2 cups of water and check the consistency. It should be soupy. Don’t worry – it will firm up as it cools! You can prepare a few portions and keep in the fridge for “the case of emergency” 😉

Play with the ingredients proportions – add more choco or berries/fruits if you like. I love it this way!
