Chickpea Chocolate Pudding

Yup - you read that correctly. I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I blame my parents being that ice cream was the food they used to teach me how to eat with a spoon.

No doubt, I still love a good ol' fashioned ice cream cone, but I'm always looking for ways to make my desserts a little bit more nutritious to keep me satisfied. Enter: Chickpea Chocolate Pudding.

Its creamy, sweet, and delicious, and you would Nev-er guess it was made from BEANS!

Chickpea Chocolate Pudding
