Choco Chocolate Chip Avocado Pudding

I love that this pudding is not made of soy it gets it's creaminess from avocados!  Agave and dates give it sweetness and cacao powder gives it a nice, rich chocolate flavor.

Info on Cacao Powder

1            cup cashews, soaked for 2 hours
2            ripe avocados
1/3         full-fat coconut milk
1/3         cup raw cacao powder (purchased in health food store)
2            teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3         cup agave or maple syrup
1            tablespoon arrowroot powder
1/4         cup date paste  (see below)
1            tablespoon melted coconut oil
1/8         teaspoon fine sea salt
1            cup vegan chocolate chips

**Date Paste: Pour two thirds cup of hot water over one cup pitted dates and soak for about an our, put all ingredients in a blender and process until a smooth, thick paste is formed.  ***I didn’t have a full cup of dates so I used about 1/2 – 3/4 cup and I still had some left over.  If you have paste left over, you can always pour over soy ice cream.

Drain the water from the cashews.  Combine all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to set.
