Let me just say, wow to this banana chia seed pudding. I have made a few chia pudding recipes before but so far this one is one of my favorites. Healthy, nutritious, easy and delicious, what more could you ask for?

This banana chia seed pudding is going to become a staple breakfast in our home. I intend to make other variations from now especially given the fact that it is so easy, filling and extremely healthy.

The other day I went to the mega store and bought a large 3 lbs chia seed bag. I actually should have bought two because with the amount of chia seeds we eat it would have save me an extra trip. Oh well maybe next time.

The recipe adaptation actually comes from my friend Erin’s blog at Meaningful Eats. Not only she has amazing recipes but they are also gluten free. I suggest you visit her site because she has tons of amazing recipes that I am sure you will like.

If you haven’t eaten, or bought chia seeds before I suggest you do. They are nutrient dense power houses. They are extremely versatile and you can try them in an array of recipes. If you like more ideas on how to use chia seeds visit this link for more options on how to use them.

I am going to experiment with other chia seed pudding recipes ideas. I hope I don’t forget because this is truly one of my ultimate favorite breakfast to have.

  1. Isn’t banana a wonder ingredient? I just blended some bananas with chickpeas and ate them as my 2nd breakfast.
    Your chia pudding looks marvelous!

  2. I really need to incorporate more chia seeds into my life! They are such a great superfood!! This pudding looks fabulous..I would love it as a healthier dessert!

  3. oooh yum Miryam, this looks so delicious! When the weather gets better, let’s plan to meet up one day in Westfield, I can come to you and shop at TJs. We can get coffee, you have such a cute downtown!

  4. Did you blend the chia seeds? They still look whole in your picture.

    • Yes I did. I used my food processor for it :-) I did it with all the ingredients together in the processor. Maybe I could do them by themselves next time and they might mix through better. It was fine this was though :-)

  5. Found this recipe on Food Gawker and tried it. I used soy milk instead of almond, used about 4 dates, and stirred in the chia seeds at the end. It’s sooooooo delicious!!! Thank you for sharing.

  6. Hi! I was wondering I you have other chis pudding recipes? Thanks :)

  7. Do you think this would work out ok with nut milk?

  8. Question do u have to use dates?

  9. What do you recommend if you don’t like dates or figs? Going to try this as it looks gorgeous x

  10. I made this last night and enjoyed for breakfast this morning. I used coconut milk, organic cowsmilk for the almond milk and dried plums…based on what I had in my home. This is fabulous and I will make again. I can’t imagine I would ever eat 1/4 of the recipe in one sitting though, more like 8 servings than 4. Yum!

  11. Looking forward to trying some of these pudding and overnight oatmeal recipes. LOVE that you have the nutrition facts!

  12. I ‘ve made a lot of shakes and puddings, but trust me, this one – banana chia seed pudding is my favourite. I tried it and it was awesome. Thanks for the suggestion. By the way, people who liked this recipe can also try Banana and Walnut Chia Seed Pudding. That’s my favourite too. Enjoy!
