Zuchinni Pudding

Zuchinni....pudding?? I know, right? But I promise you, you'll never know there's a veggie in this dessert ;) It just tastes like a treat! I am all about getting my fruits & veggies, but I also lovelovelove desserts, so I try to balance it out. This is one of the simplest recipes ever: inspired by my carrot pudding, carrot orange pudding, & my apple carrot pudding, this recipe is equally as likely to please. My mom hates zuchinni, with a passion...but she loved this pudding :) And I'm having a hard time keeping my spoon out of the bowl :D Give this pudding to the zuchinni skeptics in your life. They'll love you for it ;)

From my kitchen, to yours <3

Ingredients:
1 large zuchinni, chopped
1 cup walnuts, soaked
pinch sea salt
1tbs pure vanilla extract
1 cup Medjool dates, pitted

Directions:
1) Process zuchinni until it's in tiny shreds. Add walnuts & sea salt, & continue to process until everything is powdery-ish.
2) Add vanilla extract; continue to process.
3) Lastly, add Medjool dates. Process until smooth.
4) Serve immediately, or store in the fridge. Yeah, right, like it'll make it to the fridge :P

I have to show you my new joy of the moment...this is pure vanilla extract, bought right from Mexico. Uh huh. I bought it when I was there. This big baby cost me only EIGHT DOLLARS!! I have been using it religiously in my recipes. Sooooooo yummy :) Nothing like getting it right from the source! lovelovelove! had to share ;)
