Banana Chia Pudding, chia pudding, chia seeds, Gluten-Free, vegan
canned coconut milk*
pure maple syrup
can sub for agave syrup or other liquid sweetener
optional toppings: banana slices, coconut flakes, coconut chips, peanut butter
In a medium mixing bowl, gently whisk together the chia seeds, cinnamon, and pinch of salt.
Next, pour in the coconut milk and maple syrup and stir gently to combine. Stir in the mashed ripe banana until everything is well-combined.
Transfer chia pudding mixture to an airtight container (like a mason jar or tupperware) and refrigerate for a minimum for 4 hours, or overnight. I typically let mine sit in the fridge overnight.
After at least 4 hours, serve the chia pudding with toppings like banana slices, coconut flakes, or peanut butter. Enjoy!
*you can substitute canned coconut milk for coconut milk from the carton or another non-dairy milk, although the final product may not be as creamy.
