Almond Butter Banana Chia Seed Pudding

Almond Butter Banana Chia Seed PuddingThis might sound weird, but I go through phases where I’m completely disgusted by eggs–can’t even smell them cooking without gagging–and I’m in one now. My mom says it’s because of a heightening consciousness (veganism is part of her faith), and that makes me sound super cool so let’s go with that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Regardless of reasoning, I’veย been in need of easy eggless breakfast options lately. Chia seed pudding is awesome because you prepare it the night before and then in the morning have it ready to go. This almond butter banana chia seed pudding recipe is SO GOOD. It makes for a great breakfast but could also satisfy a sweet tooth craving at night if you’re looking for healthy dessert options. ย Almond Butter Banana Chia Seed Pudding Almond Butter Banana Chia Seed Pudding

Prep this tonight and kick your week off right by enjoying it for breakfast tomorrow morning!

Are you a chia seed pudding fan? What are some of your favorite flavor combos? And anyone else get weird temporary food revulsions? Happens to me with eggs, melted cheese and fish. Maybe my body is telling me to be a vegan …

    You should definitely give veganism a shot!! Best decision I’ve ever made for myself (and the animals).

  4. This sounds beaut. I’ve just recently bought some Flax and chia seeds to experiment cooking and baking with so I will definitely give this a go.

  5. Just made this, can’t wait to try it!! I doubled the batch to make 3 servings ๐Ÿ˜€ Tip: making in a vitamix after all ingredients are blended you can turn down to a 1 and mix in the chia seeds without demolishing them!

    My go-to is typically basic vanilla with fresh berries on top. Thanks for the new twist!!

    • Also, agree with Kelsey above. Give veganism a try. My stomach, body, mind have never been happier. As an endurance athlete, I never feel like I’m missing out on key nutrients, I actually feel healthier and like I can eat MORE awesome food after workouts.

  6. I typically add chia seeds in to my overnight oats and haven’t tried a pudding without oats yet–this sounds so tasty though!

    I just wanted to say that these photos are beautiful! Can’t wait to give this a try.

  8. My sister and I kid our Mom that vegetarianism is her true religion. She uses flax seed as a replacement for eggs in baked goods. Can you use flax seeds in this recipe in place of the chia seeds?

    Just found your blog… love your honesty! I’m also a fitness/life coach (30 years, yikes!) and my daughter is a new vegan after being a vegetarian for a few years, and is an aspiring holistic/vegan chef!
    I’ll keep reading!

  10. Oooo I wonder how yummy this tastes!! I don’t think I’ve had chia seed?!?! I’m so curious!

    • They’re great (and packed with health benefits)! As they soak they release a gelatinous layer that makes for a great pudding texture. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I love chia pudding, but this way of making it sounds even more delicious. Need to try it!

  12. Katherine says:

    I tried chia pudding once and was sadly disappointed, but I’m not sure why. The flavor was not bad, and the texture was one I usually enjoy, but for some reason I could hardly gag it down. Can’t figure out why.

  13. Jeanean says:

    I do not like the texture of chia pudding, very tapioca like. Every recipe I have found, I decided to soak my chia seeds in whatever liquid the recipe calls for (about 20 min), then put everything in my nutribullet. It doesn’t totally get rid of the seeds and still makes the pudding thick, but breaks them down enough that I now love chia pudding! I have tried multiple recipes doing this, and they have all turned out great.

  14. I made a few small adjustments to this recipe. I am currently doing the Whole30 diet. Because of Whole30, I can’t have vanilla extract. So I left out the vanilla and added some blue berries instead. Turned out amazing. I highly recommend it.

  15. SO GOOD! This ones getting added into the breakfast rotation.
