Banana Chia Pudding

My chia pudding recipes are some of the most popular recipes here on the blog, and I believe it! In my opinion, chia pudding is underrated. While the texture may take a little getting used to, it’s delicious and highly nutritious thanks to the main ingredient: chia seeds.

Chia seeds are a fantastic source of fibre, as well as healthy fats (including omega-3’s). They also offer us some plant-based protein. This combination of fibre, fat, and protein is the perfect mixture of the ingredients we need to feel (and stay) full for longer.

Now because I’m such a chia pudding fan, I’m always trying to find new flavours to top the last one. Some of my most popular chia pudding recipes include:

That being said, this Banana Chia Pudding recipe is my new favourite. It’s creamy, sweet, and satisfying. If you love bananas, you’ll love this recipe.
