Pumpkin Chocolate Pudding

This chocolate pudding is full of nutrients including good fats (avocado), protein (tofu), fibre (pumpkin) and lots of flavour (chocolate and maple syrup). If you need a sweet fix, make it a nutritious treat at least. No gluten, no dairy but lots of flavour. Top with coconut yogurt and toasted nuts or seeds and enjoy!
