Paleo Chia Banana Pudding

Tastes like old-fashioned banana pudding
Full of heart-healthy omegas and protein. This is nutritious comfort food.

Discovering chia pudding was like Christmas for me! It’s simiar to rice or tapioca pudding, but it’s loaded with healthy omegas.  It’s so versatile!  Depending on how you make it, it can actually be a healthy breakfast or afternoon snack.  If you prefer to add a lot of natural sweeteners, it’s probably better off as an occasional treat. This recipe here is suitable for whenever. It’s mildly sweet and gives a sense of comfort as you savor each bite.

Ingredients:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

5 Tbsp chia seeds (adjust depending on how thick you want it)

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 dates

1/2 banana

Pinch of cinnamon

Directions: Blend milk, vanilla, and dates (or chop dates finely and mix in a bowl). Pour into airtight container. Stir in chia seeds. Cover and refrigerate overnight. When you’re ready to enjoy you’re pudding, mash banana and stir it in. Garnish with cinnamon. Delicious.

The nutrient to calorie ratio in chia seeds is amazing. They have so much to offer! We’re talking antioxidants, fiber, protein, and Omega-3 fatty acids! Once again, they help prevent heart disease and diabetes. You’re probably noticing just about every recipe I post here does. That’s the benefit of making your own food, using wholesome ingredients. You’re food starts working for you instead of against you! Back to chia seeds for another moment. They help with bone health, excercise performance, and because of their versatility, are easy to fit into a healthy diet!
