Chocolate chocoalte chocolate. Yes, I am bit obsessed by chocolate lately, but I couldn’t help to share with you this awesome recipe for the most delicious (and healthy!) pudding EVER!

Only two ingredients and ready in less then one minute. You just need to blend the two ingredients together in an high speed blender and, like magic, you end up with the most delightful chocolate dessert you have never tasted.

So, are you curious to know which are the two ingredients?
I am sure you are!

One ingredient is raw cacao powder and the second one is...persimmons!
You won’t believe how delicious can be such a odd combination!

How they can hold together? Well, thanks its pectin content.
While blending persimmons in the food processor, its sugar content and the pectin warms up and the cacao powder works as a binder as well crating this incredible pudding-like persim-choco-pudding!

These persimmons might look weird, but they are from the tree of a friend of mine and they are suuuuper-organic and ripened on the tree. Their are so flavorful and their texture is just wow!

Pectin: good for your pudding and good for you!

Pectin is is a gelatinous substance, also present in apples, which is usually used as a thickening to make jams. 

Pectin, more specifically, is a soluble fiber. As all soluble fibers, it is helpful in lowering serum cholesterol and remove fat from the gastrointestinal tract.

In particular pectin is useful in managing diabetes because it slows the absorption of food after meals. It removes unwanted metals and toxins and help to lessen the side effects of radiation therapy. Pectin also help to lower cholesterol and to reduce the risk of heart disease and gallstones.
