Chocolate Banana Coconut Chia Pudding

The title says it all. The taste makes you forget about pretty much everything going on around you. The fact that it only has 1 tbs agave and a banana for sweetener, all the great fiber from the chia and the cocoa’s added fiber and minerals makes you want to eat it by the gallon and not feel guilty. But don’t go crazy because although unsweetened cocoa powder has all that great fiber and minerals it’s also high in saturated fat…so take it easy and eat like you’ve only been missing chocolate for like a week and not a month. This is also a fun dish to make with your keiki! My cupkeiki enjoyed mashing and stirring but not waiting for it to be ready!

My recipe:

1 1/4 C. Milk (whole)

1/4 C. Chia Seeds

1 Mashed Banana

3Tbs. Fine Quality Cocoa (baking) I used Nuance Chocolate’s Dutch Process Cocoa

1 Tbs. Agave

Less than an 1/8C. Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

~Mix it all together, and let it set up for a couple hours or overnight. Top with sliced fruit, coconut, cinnamon, whipped cream…I could go on here!
