Each month when I receive my assignment email for The Secret Recipe Club I quickly scan my assigned site to check out who they are and what they have shared so far. Picking the actual recipe usually comes later. I’m just excited to see if I know them and if not, get to know more about them.
This month I was assigned Heavenly Treats and Treasures by Grace. I knew exactly who was behind the site because she was recently assigned my site and made a brilliant adaption to one of my recipes. See, I made a very simple healthy dessert called one-ingredient ice cream which is made solely out of bananas. I’ve seen people adapt it to include chips, chocolate sauce and other traditional ice cream toppings. What I had not seen to date was the inclusion of Nutella. Grace added a couple tablespoons of Nutella to transform the ice cream into something extraordinary. Her Magic Nutella Ice Cream looks so divine.
I was in dessert mode when I was selecting a recipe from her site. I could not stop thinking about the Nutella Ice Cream (which is a good thing). I was torn between her Superdoodles and Chocovado Pudding. I settled on the pudding simply because my self-imposed rule with the Secret Recipe Club to try to make something I have never made before.
As Grace indicated when she shared the recipe, the pudding is not a dead ringer for regular chocolate pudding. However, like the one-ingredient banana ice cream, it’s a great alternative for dessert if you are looking for something a little bit healthier.
I didn’t make any changes to Grace’s recipe so I’m going to send you over to her sight to check it out.
