Banana Chia Pudding Healthy Snack!
I am a sucker for healthy snacks, aren’t we all? Well I gotta be honest about my past, I remember those days when I was 8, 9 and even 17 years old, and all I wanted to do was eat junk food. I mean when you are growing up and nobody explains to you that doritos with nutella (yes, I love the sweet & salty combination) are not the healthiest for you, then that’s all you want to eat growing up. Until you realize that you might not be going número 2 because you are not eating enough of the good stuff and too much of the bad stuff.
When I discovered healthy eating and started being regular I became addicted to finding out ways to eat yummy foods that were also good to my body.
Chia seeds and bananas are a few of those yummy foods that are staples in my kitchen.
Here is a super healthy snack that’s not only delicious but it’s also EXTREMELY good for your body! This chia pudding is packed with fiber, protein, antioxidants and omega 3, which is a multiple win..
All organic Ingredients:
¼ cup cashews soaked overnight, drained & rinsed
¼ cup chia seeds
¼ cup hemp seeds (optional)
½ cup non-dairy milk. I used coconut milk
1 scoop of your favorite vanilla protein. I used Biotrust
2-3 soft medjool pitted dates
A handful of blueberries to top it off.
- Blend the banana with the cashews, the milk, dates, hemp seeds, the scoop of protein in a high speed blender.
- Pour mix in a glass container, stir in chia seeds and cover.
- Place in the fridge overnight.
- In the morning you can eat it and top it off with blueberries or any fruits you like for an awesome breakfast option or for a healthy afternoon snack.
