Andy Deas’ Coconut/Apple Pudding

June 2, 2010

If you’re not listening to Robb Wolf’s Paleolithic Solution Podcast, I have a huge problem with you.  I’m serious.

In the most recent episode, Robb’s tag-team-partner Andy outlines a recipe for a truly delicious Paleo Dessert, as follows…

Coconut/Apple Pudding:

  • 1 Can Coconut Milk
  • 2-4 tbsp Coconut Oil (added as a thickener)
  • 3 Apples – Skinned + Chopped (preferably organic – whatever kind you like)
  • Cinnamon to taste, I suggest using quite a bit

Place all ingredients in a pot and cook until apples are softened.  Pour straight into blender/food processor and blend until smooth.  Refrigerate until solid-ish, probably about a day, then ENJOY!

I will tinker with other fruit/berries and report back – I could see this working well with blueberries specifically.  Another way to do this is to use frozen bananas and blend those.

EDIT (5.4.10): You can go straight to the source here.

EDIT (8.12.10): Looks like Andy and some listeners are adding Coconut Oil as a thickener.  Seems like a great idea.  I will try it out tonight and see how it goes, will expand this edit ASAP to update on how it works.  Also – listen to the new podcast if you havent caught it yet, he discusses the changes at the very end!  Plus there’s now a Robb Wolf drinking game!

    • BW + 50# x 4
    • BW x 10

The DOMS from my rep-upper last week was still there, and while I likely should have rested, I think the reduced workload was okay.  Didn’t get worse the next day, so I’m hoping for a speedy recovery.

Party on dudes

    I made the “pudding” two nights ago, but with fewer apples (2 apples & 2 caps of coconut milk). I let it cool overnight in the fridge.

    It is Amazing!

    Frozen bananas is a good idea. I’ll give that a go next week.

    Justin –

    I totally agree… I really hesitated to add that 3rd apple as a registered carbophobe, but it ended up pretty well and absolutely delicious.

    Question – was it more pudding-like for you or apple-sauce? Mine turned a bit apple-saucy, and I think I’ll go with 2 next time and check the consistency.

    I’ll edit the post after I try it.

    I only used two smallish-medium apples total with two cans of coconut milk, so mine was definitely more on the pudding side.

    I made this today… using 5 small granny smith apples.

    Next time, I am going to make it with sweet potatoes or pumpkin. It will be better than any pumpkin pie grandma ever made!

      Please report back when you do try it with pumpkin… I’ve thought to do this but haven’t yet!
