Ingredients

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1 ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 - 2 T 100% pure maple syrup
  • cup chia seeds

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl or a jar (that you will seal later to shake), mash banana.
  • Add milk, vanilla, cinnamon and maple syrup and mix well to combine.
  • Add chia seeds and whisk to combine or seal container and shake thoroughly until combined.
  • Place sealed container into the refrigerator and chill for at least 4 hours to set firmly. For best results, stir the mixture up a couple times after chilling and before serving. (about 30 minutes or so after, and maybe a couple hours later)
  • To serve, garnish with some cinnamon, sliced bananas and maybe even some chopped walnuts or pecans.

Notes

  • If you are worried that the texture of chia seeds, you can make your Banana Chia Seed Pudding smooth by putting the mixture in a high powered blender and blending until smooth. Do this before step 6 when everything is already mixed together for best results.
  • Chia seeds can clump up very easily. When adding them into the bowl of milk and banana, whisk right away to keep from any clumping. Stir the mixture a couple of times after chilling to keep any new clumps from forming.
  • Sweeten to your liking--the banana will already bring some natural sweetness. If you don't like things too sweet, you can even sweeten the pudding before serving.
