Chocolate-Banana Pudding (Dairy Free)
So I fell upon this chia seed pudding recipe while surfing the internet and I decided to give it a try… I was not impressed with the results and the chia seeds had all sunk to the bottom of the container forming a thick muck of seeds which separated from the rest of the pudding mixture. So, I pondered on it and decided to try something saving this mixture because I just refuse to throw out such wonderful ingredients. So, I poured the failed pudding mixture in my Vita-Mix blender (any blender would do), and added 1/2 of a large banana. I blended until the mixture was smooth with no visible traces of whole Chia seeds, and then stored in the refrigerator for a few hours and voila: A lovely, chocolate-banana pudding that is as yummy as it looks in the photograph!
Here are the ingredients I used:
1-1/4 cups of vanilla, almond milk (unsweetened)
1 TBSP Honey
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 TBSPS Cocoa
1/4 cup of Chia Seeds
1/2 large banana.
*Top with slivered almonds and grated dark chocolate.
Add all of the above ingredients into a blender and blend until chia seeds are visibly ground into a powder; Pour into a sealed container and refrigerate overnight.
I’m thinking this mixture could be awesome in a pie as well!
Enjoy the pudding and please let me know how it turns out! 🙂
