Peanut Butter Banana Chia Seed Pudding

By  | 

I love this recipe, not only because of how easy it is, but because my kids can’t get enough of it!  I am always trying to find healthy alternatives to typical childhood favorites and this chia seed pudding is definitely a win.  You won’t ever crave traditional pudding again!  This is my new go-to when I feel like I absolutely need a mid-week cheat and I don’t feel guilty because it is Paleo, so my digestive system loves it too 🙂

Chia seeds are awesome because they deliver a ton of nutrients without a lot of calories, they are full of antioxidants, almost all of the carbs are from fiber, and they are high in Omega-3 fatty acids.  Omega-3s are important because they can lower your cholesterol, reduce high blood pressure, protect you from heart attacks, ease joint pains, fight wrinkles and skin ailments, and improve your memory.

 

Ingredients:

1 Small Banana

1/2 c. Coconut Milk (45. cal/cup)

1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter

3 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
