Banana Chia Pudding

by | Nov 2, 2021 | Breakfast, Dessert, Snacks

This rich and creamy Banana Chia Pudding combines hearty coconut milk with vanilla, dates, and bananas for a fibre-packed breakfast, snack, or dessert.

This has been my favourite chia pudding recipe for as long as I can remember. In fact, it might be the very first one I ever made nearly a decade ago!

I originally got this recipe from the 889 Yoga blog (a Toronto yoga studio). It’s such a classic recipe with a really rich flavour, yet all you need are a few simple ingredients.

This Banana Chia Pudding can be eaten for breakfast, snack, or as a dessert. Chia seeds are a great source of fibre and coconut milk provides satiating fats to keep you feeling full! Add some extra flavour and crunch on top with chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts, shredded coconut, or cacao nibs.

How to Make Banana Chia Pudding

For this recipe you’ll need:

Chia pudding can be made by just mixing together your ingredients and allowing the chia seeds to work their magic (they thicken and gelatinize when exposed to liquids). But I like blending my chia puddings to make them ultra creamy.
