Banana Coconut Cacao Chia Seed Pudding

Posted on

Serves 4

Active Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 3 hours


3/4 cup chia seeds

4 cups unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk 

2 ripe bananas, whole

7 large dates, pitted

1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes

4 tbsp cacao nibs

2 tbsp cacao powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt



Chia seeds are almost as fun as chia pets. So if having a plethora of chia pets displayed around your apartment is killing your romance game, try an alternative like stocking your mini fridge with a bunch of mini cups of chia seed pudding. It’s a fancy sounding recipe that is super simple.

In a blender or food processor, combine almond milk, peeled banana, pitted dates, cinnamon, cacao powder, and salt. Blend on medium speed until smooth, about two minutes. Empty mixture into a large bowl. With a whisk in hand, begin slowly adding the chia seeds until all are well combined with the milk mixture. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer to a glass container with lid, and let refrigerate for 3 hours or more. For best results, practice extreme patience and refrigerate overnight. The chia seeds will expand and form a gelatinous texture. Just before serving, top with shredded coconut and cacao nibs.
