I'm always experimenting and can never leave well enough alone. Here's my latest variation on the chocolate pudding theme.
The same recipe as below, but ... (wait for it)
Add in one can of black beans, well rinsed (or equivalent, if you want to cook your own). You have to have a powerful blender to make this work. Add a bit more sweetener (I use some stevia, I like KAL brand, but too much stevia can ruin it, so go easy) and some more maple syrup/agave, to taste. Remember, you're making about twice as much pudding) and as much more of the other ingredients (vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa powder) as you deem necessary.
Then there's one more thing, just a little bit exotic. I had some Distilled Rose Water (Maward) in my fridge and added a capful or two. This was really quite nice. Something special.
If you're worried about the black beans, I think you'll be surprised -- they blend in perfectly.
For young kids, though, I'd just stick with the basic simple recipe below.
