Nutrient Breakdown

Pistachio Butter

The star ingredient of this recipe – our single ingredient organic pistachio butter! Pistachios are a nutrient-rich nut, providing micronutrients including magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and potassium. In fact, a 2 tablespoon serving of pistachio butter provides 6 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 10% of the recommended daily intake of potassium, along with 6% of the recommended daily intake of iron.

One of the most notable benefits of pistachios is their high antioxidant activity. Pistachios contain several types of antioxidants, including polyphenols, flavonoids, and carotenoids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation and oxidative damage in the body.

Avocado is a nutrient-dense fruit that is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, and vitamins like vitamin K, vitamin C, and folate. Avocados have been shown to improve heart health by reducing cholesterol levels, lowering blood pressure, and reducing inflammation.


Cocoa is another antioxidant-rich ingredient in this recipe. Cocoa contains flavanols, which have been shown to improve blood flow, reduce blood pressure, and improve cognitive function. 

Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is a natural sweetener that is a good source of antioxidants and minerals like zinc and manganese.

    Yes! This recipe is creamy and delicious (thanks to the pistachio butter and avocado) without any dairy.

    No! We were skeptical when blending up this recipe, but the avocado is just here for the creamy texture (and nutrients)! The flavour of this pudding is nutty and chocolaty – no avocado taste here!
