Banana Chia Seed Pudding is perfect for a quick, nutritious breakfast. It makes a delicious snack any time of day! When you need a little something sweet, this pudding hits the spot!
Who doesn’t love a delicious and healthy snack that’s easy to make ahead? We tend to snack a lot in our house, especially with a toddler running around. While it’s easy to grab a bag of chips or other unhealthy snacks, I am trying to keep healthier snacks around.
This delicious banana chia seed pudding is something that I like to make ahead and keep in the fridge. It’s a great way to get some good nutrients without too many calories, making it suitable for those who are following a keto or low-carb diet.
What are Chia Seeds?
Chia seeds are a type of superfood that has become increasingly popular in recent years. These tiny little seeds are packed with nutrients and are an excellent source of many important vitamins and minerals, including protein, iron, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids.
They also have a number of health benefits, such as improving digestion and helping to regulate blood sugar levels.
Chia seeds have a high soluble fiber content, which makes them perfect for making pudding. The fiber helps to thicken the pudding and gives it a creamy texture.
How to Make Banana Chia Seed Pudding
This banana chia seed pudding is so easy to make that you’ll wonder why you haven’t been making it all along!
I like to use almond milk in my pudding, but you could also use coconut milk, dairy milk, or any other type of milk you like.
While some recipes call for ground chia seed pudding, we’re leaving ours intact to add a bit of tapioca-type texture that’s so fun to slurp!
I add a little sweetener to my pudding, but if you want it to be completely sugar-free you could leave it out.
You’ll need to mix together the chia seeds and milk in a mason jar or bowl, then you can stir in any flavorings like vanilla extract or cinnamon that you want. Let this sit for about 20 minutes so the milk has time to absorb into the chia seeds, then give it another good stir.
You will want to leave this mixture in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving to let the milk do its thing and let the flavors marry. You can also keep it in there overnight if you want to make it ahead.
When you want to serve your chia seed pudding, just add some sliced bananas and/or your favorite toppings. We love fresh berries and chopped nuts on ours.
