Chocolate Banana Chia Seed Pudding, It's What's for Breakfast

Chia seeds. A year ago I didn't even know what these little buggers were. Now I can't live without em.
For everything you ever wanted to know about this superfood click here. Chia seeds make an amazing pudding, creamy and crunchy at the same time. 

For this breakfast pudding, mix 2 Tbsp chia seed with 1/2 cup nut milk (I use unsweetened almond milk). Let sit for a few minutes and then stir (a must!). Then, mix in 1 scoop of Amazing Grass Green Superfood Chocolate Drink Powder. Cover and refrigerate until ready for next step.

Make banana softserve. In a high speed blender or food processor, place 1 1/2 frozen bananas, cut into chunks. Drizzle in a little unsweetened almond milk and blend, tamping down and scraping down sides until banana becomes smooth and creamy. Scoop out of blender and put it on top of the chocolate chia pudding. OMG

You could top the chocolate chia pudding with fresh berries or just about anything you like if you don't have the time to make the banana softserve.

Do you buy your Chia seeds online or in a store? I've only seen them once at my Whole Foods, and I have to admit I was a little shocked by their sticker price. But I think I might have to break down and get some.

It is because of the sticker price that I found an on-line source. I was very happy with the product and the price. I have provided the link above. It says "Buy from Amazon." I'm just about ready to put in a new order!

Hi!! Can't tell you how much I needed to find a blog like this! I'm on a path to lose 50 lbs before I start trying for our second child...just started my journey on Monday! We have the same blog designer (isn't she lovely?) so I found you though her post about you on her blog! Looking forward to using your inspiration to help me as I tumble along!

This looks great for breakfast! I just came up with a version that works awesomely as a late-night decadent snack, using peanut butter instead of chia pudding and room-temperature banana rather than banana soft serve. I'm calling it "Chocolate Velvet Pleasure Bomb Pudding." ;)
