Chocolate Pudding

Looking for a simple chocolate recipe that brings back childhood memories? I have just the thing! Chocolate pudding with a healthy twist. I always knew when my dad was the one to pack my lunch because I’d open my lunch bag to find a Hunts snack pack chocolate pudding staring up at me. Coming from a very healthy family, this was super exciting! Especially when all the other kids were eating Dunkaroos, Fruit Roll Ups, and Gushers. Thinking back, I am thankful for the healthy eating habits that were established for me at a young age. The tricky thing with kids is that they don’t want to stand out. Being different in any way, even with the food they eat, immediately makes them a target for bullying or ridicule. Such a crazy and sad concept when you think about it.. Especially since most people strive to be different as they grow up. If you have a pudding lover kid, or maybe you are the pudding lover kid (like me, haha) make this healthier version!!
