Healthy Snack Recipes for Kids: Chocolate Pudding

Finding healthy snack recipes for kids is something that seems to be on every mother's to-do list.

Because our family typically eats only healthy foods, most days, my kids are awesome eaters... broccoli, squash, sweet potatoes, chicken, beef, soups... they'll eat it all.

But then other days their sweet tooth is (literally) screaming for satisfaction.

On the days when an apple with almond butter just won't cut-it at snack time, I whip out this to-die-for chocolate pudding. Of course I build it up like it's a decadent, indulgent treat so they feel really lucky. In reality, it's the best way I know to get my picky 3 year old a good serving of healthy avocados.

Yup. Avocados. Those very foods that are one of the best sources of good fats, vitamin E, potassium, copper and manganese.

Plus, what lactose-intolerant or dairy-intolerant person hasn't longed for chocolate pudding at some point? Well, here is a completely dairy-free pudding recipe.

TIP: Omit the water and use this as a dairy-free and healthy frosting for cakes.
