Banana Chia Pudding

Sometimes it can be hard to get going in the morning because you’ve been up with a sleepless child or stayed up a little bit too late to savor those precious quiet, late-night moments to yourself. In those morning pouring a bowl of cereal is all that can be mustered. But what if there was a more nutritious and even easier option?


Enter banana chia pudding.


Sometimes it can be hard to get going in the morning because you’ve been up with a sleepless child or stayed up a little bit too late to savor those precious quiet, late-night moments to yourself. In those mornings pouring a bowl of cereal is all that can be mustered. But what if there was a more nutritious and even easier option? full of fiber, protein, brain boosting Omega-3s, and plenty of calcium. Chia seeds also have magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, potassium, and B vitamins. It kinda feels like serving a multivitamin for breakfast.


You can serve banana chia pudding on its own or add toppings like strawberry chia jam, almond butter, blueberries, coconut flakes, or walnuts. Banana chia pudding is also great for meal prepping and you can maker a larger batch to serve all week!



1 banana

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (any plant-based milk will work)

1/3 cup chia seeds

1 tsp vanilla
