This is a slightly modified version of the recipe from Patrice Pollack of http://www.ahealthfoodie.com. A healthy, slightly sweet pudding great for dessert or a post workout snack.
1 1/4 cup rice, coconut or almond milk (use chocolate for a richer flavor)
1/4 cup chia seeds – rinsed and drained
1 heaping tablespoon smooth peanut, sunflower seed or almond butter
1 banana – mashed
1/2 tablespoon raw, unsweetened cacao powder (you can also use natural cocoa powder or dutch processed cocoa powder)
Option 1: Mix everything in a large bowl and allow it to sit for 20 minutes before serving. This will allow the chia seeds to thicken and double in size. Pour into small bowls and chill before serving.
Option 2: Place all the ingredients in a bowl, stir well and allow to sit for 20 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Pour into small bowls and chill before serving.
