Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla protein powder or vegan protein powder
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract use pure
  • ¾ cup coconut milk or almond milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 ripe bananas plus more for topping
  • 1 tsp cinnamon plus more to sprinkle on top
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flakes plus more for garnish

Instructions

  • Mix all the ingredients, except bananas, in a small bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic food wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours to thicken or overnight.
  • Once it has thickened, stir together again, and add a little bit more milk if needed.
  • Mash or cube 1 banana.
  • Add to the pudding and mix to incorporate.
  • Cube more banana and top your pudding with it.
  • Garnish with coconut flakes and cinnamon.

Notes

  • Honey can be used in place of maple syrup.
  • Replace protein powder with vegan protein to make it vegan.
  • Make sure to break apart any clumps in your chia pudding before transferring it to the fridge. You want the chia seeds to be able to absorb the liquid.
  • Chia seeds don’t have any taste to them on their own and take on the flavor of the liquid it is in. In this case, your chia pudding will taste like coconut thanks to the coconut milk. So if you use a different non-dairy milk like almond or cashew, it will take on the flavoring.
  • You can easily scale this recipe up to multiple servings.
  • The more ripe your bananas, the sweeter they’ll be. So if your bananas have more than a couple of brown spots, then they’re ready to be used!
  • If you do not have almond or coconut milk you can use another non-dairy milk of your choice. My next best option is almond milk.
