If you haven’t yet jumped on the Chia Pudding bandwagon than have I got a recipe for you.
So what’s so good about Chia Puddings? Well besides being able to make them ahead of time they are nutritious, taste amazing and are super easy to whip up.
Chia seeds are packed full of incredible health benefits. They are high in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids (hello healthy skin and hair), protein and can help with digestion. I love using them in cooking for an egg replacement or thickener. They are so versatile which is why these tiny seeds are now seen everywhere.
With the added nutrients and minerals from the banana and coconut this breaky will keep you fueled all morning long.
Coconut and Banana Chia Pudding
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/4 cup of chia seeds
- 1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 3 drops of vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp of shredded/flaked coconut
- 1 tbsp of sunflower seeds (optional)
In a blender add all ingredients except the chia seeds and sunflower seeds.
Blitz together to make a nice creamy mixture. Add chia seeds stirring them through so they are all mixed in ready to soak in all that goodness.
Pour into a bowl and top with some extra coconut and sunflower seeds. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight to set.
In the morning simply take it out and enjoy!
