Easy, flavorful, and nutrient-dense, a bowl of this Banana Cacao Chia Pudding is a great way to start your morning!

I feel as though it’s been quite some time since I last made a chia pudding, I had almost forgotten about how yummy these simple dishes can be! It’s especially easy to wake up to a delicious pudding for breakfast after taking mere minutes to put it together the night before.

Sliced Bananas

These types of dishes are so easily customizable, they’re a lot like having oatmeal for breakfast; you can make it with any ingredients that you like. For this one in particular, I choose to use a perfectly ripe banana for a little natural sweetness, some tart goji berries, and raw cacao powder to accompany the gooey chia seeds.

Completely nutritious and full of vitamins, this Banana Cacao Chia Pudding  could easily be eaten as breakfast, a snack or a healthy dessert.

Lastly, for a nearly raw treat, replace the goji berries with a tablespoon of melted peanut butter (as pictured below). Peanut butter, chocolate and banana? One of my favorite flavor combinations for sure. If you’re trying to get into eating more chia seeds, this is a great way to do it!

So...I've never eaten chia seeds...would I get the same results from flax seeds?

I would say not. The flaxseeds might give it too much of a mushy texture while the chia seeds have a gooey bubble around them with a teeny tiny crunch because of the seed remnants. It breaks up the texture a bit.
