Easy banana chia seed pudding, with only 3 simple ingredients, is great for breakfast, dessert, or light snack!


Units Scale
  • 2 large overripe bananas (about 1 cup, mashed)
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut (beverage), almond or cashew milk
  • 6 tablespoons chia seeds

Optional add-ins

  • 24 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/21 teaspoon vanilla extract

To garnish

  • toasted coconut flakes
  • banana slices
  • cacao nibs or shaved dark chocolate


In a medium bowl, add bananas and mash well, stir in non-dairy milk and chia seeds, mix well.

Let set for about 30 minutes, and give a good stir, repeat one more time, stirring again after 30 minutes. This step is an important step, as the seeds need to be stirred once or twice before completely gelling up and setting. If not stirred, the mixture will be soupy. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

Serve with sliced bananas, toasted coconut flakes and cacao nibs/shaved chocolate. Would also be great with a dollop of coconut whipped cream!

Makes about 3 cups.


Make this raw by using homemade nut milk of choice.
