Cha – Cha Chia! Chocolate Banana Pudding

Hey ya’ll! I have a quick and easy recipe for Chia chocolate banana pudding.  There are only 4 ingredients and this a healthy delicious treat.  The chia seeds thicken in the liquid mixture and make a delicious pudding.  No more gelatin puddings for this girl!

For Pudding: 

  • 1 Ripe medium banana
  • 1 tbsp raw organic cacao or cocoa powder, unsweetened (optional)
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds (white or black)
  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla almond milk, unsweetened

Garnish optional: 

  • Sliced bananas
  • cacao nibs


  1. Blend ingredients
  2. Refrigerate overnight in glass container
  3. Serve with optional garnish 

Did you know Chia seeds are the same seeds used to grow Chia pets.  It took me a while to figure that one out! But I think it’s funny they were being sold for years (since the late 70’s) as a kind of kitschy gift and now we are eating them for their amazing nutritional content!

By the way, we have this Hello Kitty chia at home, I’ll share a pic soon.  She’s about to sprout!
