hi hi chia lovers!!
So, I'm just gonna jump right in and say that this Chia Banana Pudding is SO good and yes! it tastes like Banana Pudding...You know, like the Banana Pudding with Nilla Wafers!? Geez, that stuff is (was) gooood.. lol I can't remember the last time I had Banana Pudding, but I'm thinking its been a good 10+ years. I had this boyfriend when I was like 20 years old and his mom could make a serious banana pudding. eek.
I woke up the other morning knowing I wanted chia pudding for breakfast, so I started soaking my seeds, then started poking around the pantry to see what I had to perhaps create something besides the regular chia pudding with banana & berries on top. And well, out came this pudd'n!
Chia Banana Pudding
IN A BOWL
3 tablespoons chia seeds x 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
soak for at least 30 minutes, stirring seeds a couple times to make sure they are soaking up the almond milk evenly.
IN THE BLENDER
vanilla protein powder. 1 scoop
2 figs. (fresh or frozen - if you use frozen you may need to use a bit more milk)
maca powder. 1 scoop (optional)
pure vanilla extract. 1 teaspoon
cinnamon. couple shakes
unsweetened vanilla almond milk. 3/4 cup
sprinkle of cinnamon
once you combine your chia pudding + vanilla protein mixture, give everything a generous mixing. If you don't already know, chia seeds are sticky little suckers & will naturally clump together, so you'll need to mix/split them up! ;)
Hope you enjoy!! xx
