While I love convenience, the little cups of chia pudding goodness you can buy at the grocery store can be kind of pricey, especially if you’re watching your wallet.

Are Chia Seeds Good For You?

Chia seeds probably aren’t the magical cure-all that some people make them out to be. You know, kinda like how some people think coconut oil fixes everything! However, seeds do have some redeeming qualities. They contain Omega-3 fatty acids (a type of essential fatty acid), fiber, and some protein.

One ounce of chia seeds contains:

  • 23% of your daily value (DV) for magnesium;
  • 17% DV for calcium;
  • 10% iron;
  • and 10 grams of dietary fiber.

How Do You Make Chia Seed Pudding?

This method for this 3-Ingredient Banana Pudding couldn’t get any easier. To make any chia pudding, you’ll need a liquid – preferably something creamy and dairy-free – plus the chia seeds and any other flavoring or spices.

First, you’ll blend the banana and coconut milk together, then add the chia seeds, stirring well. The hardest part will be having the patience to wait while the chia seeds work their magic.

Chia seeds are well-known for their ability to absorb lots of liquid, plumping up and softening in the process. This can take an hour or more, so chia pudding makes a good quick breakfast if you have to make something the night before to take to work or school. They’re a good source of healthy fats and also have a small amount of protein.

The banana adds a touch of sweetness instead of relying on dense sources of added sugars that can send your morning blood sugar on a roller coaster ride.

Why is Coconut Milk Healthy?

And the coconut milk is rich in healthy fats, especially the much talked about medium-chain triglycerides (MCT). If you can’t eat coconut or don’t like the flavor, I’d recommend homemade cashew milk as a second option.

Add a little boost of protein by incorporating your favorite protein powder or grass-fed collagen powder (see my favorite).

And as I mentioned above, you can use any kind of dairy-free milk that you’d like. Cashew milk or almond milk make great substitutes for the coconut. You could even use something like goat milk if you can tolerate it. Basically, you’ve got tons of options.

I topped my 3-ingredient banana pudding with some toasted coconut flakes for texture. You could also try fresh fruit, nuts, or dried bananas.
