Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas peeled
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 2 cups milk (any type... I use plant based because they have lower calories)
  • sugar, agave, honey, maple syrup as desired

Method

    Instructions

    • Mash up the bananas until they're a gooey, sloppy mess! It's important to get to this stage because it means you've broken the starch in the banana and released the sugar. MmmMMmm! I like to break the banana into chunks to make the mashing easier. Place the mashed banana into a jar (glass jar preferable, but if you have plastic, that's fine. Just make sure it's a wide mouth so you can clean it later!)
    • Add 1/2 cup chia seeds. Yup, that's right, straight onto the bananas. What, you thought this was complicated or something?
    • Add 2 cups of milk.
    • MIX AGGRESSIVELY! Rough day? Hate quarantine?? Take out your anger on that pudding! Seriously though, in order to release the gelatinous chemistry of the chia seed, you need to rough it up. Mix for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
    • Put lid on jar, place in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove, and aggressively mix once again.
    • Place in refrigerator for minimum of 6 hours and enjoy!!!!!!!!
    • Add Sweetener as desired.
