By now you've probably come across chia pudding recipes. If you have no idea what chia pudding is--think of a healthy, filling tapioca pudding...that is way less sweet. If you're a fan of tapioca, then you'll really like chia pudding! Chia pudding versions are even better: they are more filling, and far more nutritious. Chia seeds are packed with fiber, protein and antioxidants, and they store well, and are digested easily whole or ground. It's so simple to toss them in salads, smoothies, baked goods--almost anything. Including this green chocolate pudding!
Chia Supergreens Pudding
1/2 frozen banana
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 cup dark leafy greens: I used kale and spinach
1 scoop protein or superfood powder (I used Chocolate Vegan Shakeology)
optional: 1/2 teaspoon spirulina
*if you're using a non-chocolate protein powder (hemp protein is also good) then add 1.5 TBSP raw cacao powder
*if your protein or superfood powder is not sweet, add a little raw honey or maple to taste
1. Blend all ingredients together in a food processor.
2. Chill refrigerated for 2 to 3 hours for a nice creamy "pudding"!
