You know what’s the best? Healthy treats. I’m not talking about healthier versions of treats, but actually food that is indulgent and healthy. Yes, they do exist.
This chia pudding is one such example. Just check out the ingredients:
- Not an added sweetener in sight, just the sweetness from the ripe bananas
- Healthy fats from the coconut milk that also make this pudding super creamy
- Chia seeds that add bulk but are also great for fiber, omega-3 fats, and assist detox
- Cinnamon which tastes fantastic but also has many health benefits
There’s one trick to this recipe, though. The bananas. They have to be just right. If they’re not ripe enough, you’ll taste the “green-ness” of them. If they’re overly ripe, you’ll get that weirdly-sweet-alcohol flavor. The bananas are what give this pudding all it’s flavor and sweetness, so you have to make sure you’re using perfectly ripe bananas to get the right taste.
