Good news, my kitchen is finally restocked! Well, I’m excited about that. Hubby and I braved the weird, rainy and cold weather to load up at Whole Foods today. $150 later, I should be good for a while. :-) And it’s been a wonderfully relaxing weekend so far, I slept in, had a lazy breakfast and hit the gym much later after leisurely reading on the internet and drinking way too much coffee. Leela had her own lazy morning buried in her comforter cave, chihuahuas have a talent for tunneling into blankets.
My relaxed breakfast was experimenting with another chia seed pudding recipe involving two more of my favorite flavors – banana and chocolate.
Banana Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding
- 1 cup nut or seed milk (I used hemp milk)
- 2 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1/2 cup frozen banana slices
- 4 stevia drops
- 2 tbsp. cacao powder
Place all ingredients except the chia seeds into a high speed blender until smooth and creamy. Pour mixture into a bowl and stir in chia seeds. Let sit for 20 minutes stirring occasionally. Enjoy! Makes one serving.
The texture was a little soupy, you could use 3/4 cup nut/seed milk if you’re using a fresh banana instead of frozen to thicken it up. I liked to soup-like texture because it was smooth and creamy, oatmeal/banana soft serve-like.
The chia seeds blended well with the creamy pureed banana and rich chocolate flavor, pureed banana and cacao powder is a combo that can’t go wrong for me and even works wonderfully well in this kale chip recipe.
Breakfast was more of an indulgent dessert this morning and that’s all right for the weekend! :-)
How’s your weekend going so far?
