Chia seeds seem to be one of the new super foods being promoted. They have many benefits, some of which you can read about here. I decided to try this recipe last night as a healthy dessert. I adapted the recipe from this site. This would also make a nice, little breakfast.
serves 4 ( 4 points +)
- 1-1/2 c. vanilla almond milk
- 2 medium bananas
- 1/4 c. chia seeds
- 4 T. aerosol whipped cream ( or make your own, but add additional points)
Place almond milk and 1 banana in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add chia seeds and blend until mixed in. Pour into dessert glasses and chill at least 2 hours. The more you chill, the thicker the pudding will become, because the chia seeds are gelatinous and will absorb liquid.
Garnish each serving with sliced banana and 1 T. whipped cream.
