Banana Chia Pudding

I posted this banana chia pudding a few years back but pictures and recipe itself could have been better.

A radio host said “January is like Monday of the year” while we were returning from a day of skiing a few days ago. So true, because I keep making and craving chia pudding for both healthy breakfast ideas and healthy snacks. You definitely won’t find me doing it on a weekend. On a weekend I recover from a crazy week in the kitchen and we survive on Alex’s cooking, freezer items like healthy banana cream pie and organic quick prep Costco finds (I spill the beans in my Costco shopping list).

I’m so happy Holidays are over!!! We had the best time at the local mountains tubing, sledding, snowshoeing, skiing and snowboarding but unfortunately it is time to make money again. Damn money… Otherwise, I wouldn’t mind skiing mid-week ever week while kids are at school. I posted many snow covered shots on Instagram so feel free to enjoy or hate the snow there. I’m not “snowed out” yet but I bet in March I will be ready for the beach which won’t happen till June but I can survive on hiking.

So, I’m ready for the routine and to have control over my food in my kitchen.

So, this banana chia pudding. I usually have it for healthy breakfast ideas or healthy snacks. I like a variety of flavours and texture here that makes this chia seed pudding more of a guilt-free dessert. You can layer it with whatever mix-ins you wish. I chose a bit of chocolate chips, banana and cacao nibs to highlight the flavours of chocolate and banana even more. I know many people do not like cacao nibs because of the bitterness but you might like them mixed in this banana chia pudding.

Enjoy!
