Chia + Banana pudding09:40
Happy Valentines day loves!
I hope you had a great beginning of the week. It's important how we start our day and we shouldn't skip breakfast. In my family everyone always says "Eat Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince, and Dinner like a Pauper". Even tho I leave home before 6am most of the days and don't get to have a breakfast there I always grab something to eat on the way to uni.
When I have time, or am at home I love making chia seed pudding. It's fast, easy, nutritious and delicious. It's a healthy sweet treat that each of us can have and not feel guilty afterwards. I'm also thinking about getting a small jar with a vacuum lid so I could have it even on those days when I'm in a rush .
The recipe can be easily amended to your preferences.
2 tablespoons of Chia seeds
1 cup of milk* (I add it by eye ~ how much would you use to put in a cereal bowl)
*any kind of milk will do or even water, but I prefer milk because of a richer taste
Warm up the milk. While it's warming up put 2 tablespoons of chia seeds in a cup/bowl and 3/4 of the banana in the cup of your blender. Pour two fingers (height) of milk in the banana and the rest over chia seeds to soak it in and stir it with a spoon so the seeds don't stick to the bottom or sides. Blend the banana+milk, it has to be creamy and fluffy. Wait a bit till the seeds swell, stir them to check that they don't stick in clusters. Pour the banana cream in slowly, it may seem like it will mix but it won't much cos the seeds are compact. At the end cut the leftover banana and put on top. Bon appetit!
The seeds don't really have a taste of it's own so anything you put with them will do. Banana gives it the sweetness and flavor.
I would like to hear how you like it or see a photo of your creation. You can tag me in your photos on Instagram or share them with me via twitter!
Have a great day and sweet future mornings
