Champion Performance Recipe of the Week - Avocado Chocolate Protein Pudding

One of my favorite treats during competition prep the first time around was my nightly protein pudding. Since I'm currently out of almond butter, but was craving my pudding, I decided to give avocado a try. I've seen tons of recipes for avocado based pudding, and put my own spin on it to match my needed macros. The result was so decadent, so smooth that even my husband wanted some! This is truly a treat (even though it fits my nutritional needs perfectly!). Enjoy!
