Why I love a good chia seed pudding:
~ it's simple to make and with minimal clean up
~ it can be made the night before (in fact, it's best that way)
~ it's gluten-free, vegan, high in fibre and healthy fats
~ it's so yummy and you can top it off with your favourite seasonal fruit

Banana & Maple Chia Seed Pudding

Serves: 2

1 ripe banana, mashed

1/4 cup + 3 Tbsp chia seeds

2 cups unsweetened almond milk

2 Tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

pinch of ground cardamom

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, mash banana well.
  2. Add chia seeds, almond milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and cardamom - mix well with a spoon or whisk.
  3. From here, you can cover your mixing bowl with cling wrap OR divide mixture between 2 bowls or 2 mason jars and cover with cling wrap or seal the jars with lids and refrigerate overnight. I prefer mason jars because I find them more convenient when I'm on the go.
  4. In the morning, give the chia seed pudding a stir and top with fresh seasonal fruit and other goodies. I used diced up peaches and dried coconut this time. You can also use berries, mango, apples, dried cranberries and/or raw nuts and seeds.
