BANANA CHIA PUDDING



As February comes to a end I am putting together this delicious and healthy treat for you, these might take a little bit of time to make but totally worth it, everyone in your family will be talking about it.

Ingredients

Chocolate Chia Pudding

  • 2 cups almond/coconut milk or your favorite milk

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds

  • 1/4 cup cup cacao or cocoa powder

  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup, OR 4 pitted + chopped medjool dates

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Coconut Banana Cream

  • 1 can full fat canned coconut milk

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds

  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

  • 1/2 vanilla bean, seeds removed

  • 1 ripe banana, mashed

  • 2 ripe bananas, sliced

Caramelized Buckwheat

  • 1/2 cup raw buckwheat groats

  • 1/2 cup raw oatmeal

  • 1 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

  • salt

  • chopped chocolate + dried roses, for topping

Instructions

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, stirring well to combine. Cover and let sit, preferably overnight, in the fridge or for at least 4 hours.

Once the pudding has thickened, add it to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. The pudding will not be as thick as traditional pudding, but should not be soupy.

Coconut Banana Cream

Combine the coconut milk, chia seeds honey, vanilla and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour, stirring twice until thickened OR let sit in the fridge overnight until thickened and creamy.

Caramelized Buckwheat

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add the buckwheat, oats, maple and coconut oil. Sprinkle with salt. Toss well to combine, making sure everything is evenly coated. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the buckwheat + oats are toasted.

To Assemble

Divide the chocolate pudding between 5-4 serving glasses. If desired add a layer of mashed banana to each glass. Top with a layer of the coconut cream pudding. If not serving right away, cover and chill in the fridge for up to 3-4 days (if chilling this long, leave OUT the layer of mashed banana and swirl it in before serving). To serve, top with sliced banana, caramelized buckwheat
