I love recipes. I have passed many happy hours reading cookbooks. I love cookbooks with beautiful photos in them. But do you know what I like even more? Illustrated cookbooks. Or illustrated recipes. Have you ever seen this website–They Draw and Cook. They have thousands of illustrated recipes. They also have a page where you can find links to the illustrators pages. It’s really awesome. I have a recipe for you today–I’ve seen quite a few versions of this–there’s even at least one on They Draw and Cook, but here’s mine, anyhow. I am going to illustrate it and maybe even put in on the website, but for now, here’s a few photos for:
Vegan Chocolate Avocado Pudding
- Two ripe avocados (peeled and pitted)
- Five or Six dates (pits removed) (or 1/2 cup coconut or other sugar)
- 1/3-1/2 cup raw cocoa powder (or not raw)
- 1/3 cup coconut or almond (or other dairy free milk–or cow milk if you don’t care if it’s vegan)
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- a pinch of salt
- peanut butter to drizzle this over the top (especially if it’s runny) about 2 teaspoons per serving, if desired. (I always desire chocolate and peanut butter together!)
- Put all ingredients in blender, except the peanut butter.
- Blend until it’s all blended together.
- If it’s too thick, add a little more milk of choice
- Drizzle with peanut butter, if desired
- Eat and enjoy!
Also, while I’m talking about illustrated recipes I first fell in love with Molly Katzen’s cookbooks–Moosewood Lodge, etc for adult’s and Pretend Soup and a couple more for kids.–here are three other of my favorites:
This last one provided my family with many hilarious Halloween dinners!
And that’s it for today, day in the A to Z blog challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
