Whatever way you make it, serve this pudding to kids and adults alike and know you're contributing to their healthy diets!

1. Gather the ingredients.
- 2 avocados
- ¼ cup cacao powder
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 8-10 chopped dates, softened if dried or 2-3 tbsp agave nectar
2. Cut the avocados.
This is definitely not a task for little ones. I think the easiest way to cut an avocado is to puncture the skin and make a line through the skin all the way around the length of the avocado. When the line connects, you should be able to twist the two halves apart. Using a sharp knife, cut into the pit. Turn the knife and the pit should come out in a ripe avocado. You can also use a spoon to scoop out the pit, but you will likely lose some avocado flesh along the way. Regardless, be careful!
