Every year, the Academy of Culinary Nutrition creates a digital cookbook with recipes made by the alumni Culinary Nutrition Experts. This Chocolate Avocado Pudding aka Calming Choco-cado Pudding recipe by Jennifer Barr is one of the 40 recipes that can be found in the From Scratch 2018 cookbook. Jennifer Barr is a meal prep guru, you can follow her on Instagram @theplantedone. My own chili recipe is also included in the cookbook, so be sure to check it out!
All, as in 100%, of proceeds from the sale of this digital cookbook go to a charity. This year our goal is to raise $10,000 for Organics 4 Orphans. Organics 4 Orphans works with African communities by educating locals on sustainable, organic agriculture so they can move their own communities from food reliance to a condition of self-sufficiency – even into surplus.
