BANANA CHIA BREAKFAST PUDDING | paleo, dairy-free, low carb + gluten-free

*music* Hi this is Steph from and today we’re making my 3-Ingredient Banana Pudding. You know, some
days you just want a quick paleo breakfast that has more of that traditional
breakfast-y feel. It’s a little bit sweet but not so sweet that it’s going to
cause your blood sugar to crash mid- morning, and something that keeps you
satisfied and full throughout the day. My 3-Ingredient Banana Pudding is, as
it says, three ingredients. It is so simple, and I made this because I was at
the grocery store and I saw these little cups of chia pudding, and they
were so expensive! I couldn’t believe how much it costs for a little cup of chia
pudding, so I said you know what, we’re making this at home. It’s really simple.
For a serving of one, and you can multiply this, all I use is one ripe
banana. Put that in a food processor. You can also do this in a blender I add a
quarter cup of coconut milk. If you can’t do coconut milk, feel free to add any nut
milk you want. Almond milk would also make a great substitute here or any
other kind of nut milk, dairy free if you want, or you could add
regular milk too. And then I blend that up until it’s nice and smooth…so just
banana and coconut milk. And to that, I stir in the chia seeds. Now, chia seeds
are really cool because they soak up any of the liquid and they get nice
and plump. They thicken the liquid without having to cook it, without having
to add any grains or thickeners, and then sometimes if I’m feeling a little bit
crazy I add a dash of vanilla extract. I stir that really well so that the chia
seeds start to soak up the moisture and thicken the liquid. Then I put that
in the refrigerator and sometimes portion it out into small containers or
we just leave the whole bowl in the fridge and scoop out from there as we
need it. You can garnish this with anything you want. Add fruit, coconut flakes, some banana chips for crunch…If you’re wanting to
add a little bit of extra protein you could certainly stir in some collagen
powder or some protein powder to just give it a little extra protein boost. And
that’s it! It’s really easy, totally customizable, but a nice filling
breakfast that’s going to keep you going and keep your energy levels stable
throughout the day. For more recipes just like my 3-Ingredient Banana Pudding,
