Chocolate Pudding Pie
Preheat oven for 350 degrees.
Cut up avocado and remove pit and skin. Add avocado, bananas, coconut milk, coca powder, and vanilla to mixer. Mix well, and set aside.
Get a 9×9 baking pan. In a blender or food processor, add in coconut oil and pitted dates and pecans. Blend until you get a chunky nut texture. Take mixture out of the blender and put into a mixing bowl. Spoon in oats and cinnamon and stir. Once well-mixed, press mixture into the pan until evenly distributed. Bake in the oven at 375 for around 15 minutes, or until the top of the mixture turns slightly brown. Take out and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Spoon pudding on top of crust, and then top mixture with chopped strawberries and bananas. So tasty!

Hello! My name is Michelle Spadafora, and I just want to personally welcome you to our site. I started Faithful Workouts in 2009 after 22 years in the fitness industry because I felt God putting it on my heart to bring him into every area of life - including my fitness life – and it changed everything.
I created Faithful Workouts to be a place where you can come and strengthen your relationship with God while you strengthen your body and mind - a place where you can find great workouts for all fitness levels, receive simple nutritional information, and connect with a real community who knows that the journey to better health is more about encouraging each other and less about being perfect. If you want to get (and stay) healthy for the long term alongside a community who will cheer you on, then you're in the right place.
