Chia pudding is a healthy snack that tastes like dessert. You can make it with all kinds of different toppings, but this banana colada chia pudding is the one that will make everyone ask for more.
I really like chia pudding because it is filling and keeps me full for a long time. This is due to the ability of the chia seeds to expand and absorb big amounts of liquid. This also thickens the pudding, so you don’t have to add starch or any other thickening agent.
To make chia pudding you can use any milk you like, but I really like to make it Whole30 compliant. That is why I mostly use coconut or almond milk, or any other nut milk. But, as I said, you can use regular milk or even yogurt (here is a simple recipe on how to make your own Greek yogurt).
Banana colada chia pudding, aka bana-colada chia pudding, is made with coconut milk, banana and unsweetened desiccated coconut for the full coconut taste. I don’t use any sweetener, since banana is sweet enough, and the desiccated coconut has a naturally sweet taste. But if you want it a bit sweeter, you can add a little bit of maple syrup or honey to your liking.

Banana colada chia pudding is a great quick breakfast or a snack, that you can have on the go. I also like making it as light healthy dessert during the week. It is perfect for hot summer days when you crave something sweet, but don’t want to feel “stuffed”.
