Banana Cocao Chia Pudding

My son loves chia seeds, he thinks they are so cool and will eat them off a spoon!  Both chia seeds and cocao are superfoods.  Chia seeds are packed with omega 3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, antioxidants and minerals.  Cocao is packed with antioxidants and minerals too.  I use raw local honey which has it's own health benefits.  The coconut milk provides a healthy dose of fat.  So really every ingredient here is beneficial, making this a truly healthy treat.  Make this at night and serve for a quick breakfast or even a dessert.  It's really delicious. Throw some chocolate chips in there and it's even yummier!

Chia seeds plump up over time, so you really want to refrigerate it for awhile before eating it.  This pudding is also really nice warmed and you can make it even more indulgent by melting dsome chocolate chips on top.  

Ingredients: 

1 ripe banana
1/3 cup full fat unsweetened coconut milk, blended then measured if separated
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp cocao
1 tbsp raw honey
Dash of vanilla 
dash of sea salt

Directions:

1.  Food process all until combined.  

2.  Pour into a jar or bowl.  

3.  Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least a few hours.  By morning it will plump up and be ready to enjoy.
