I’ve been interested in trying chia pods, but haven’t been able to find them anywhere! So, I ordered a case of them through the food co-op that I am a part of. Good thing I like them because now I have a whole refrigerator full! Made with only 3 ingredients and no added sugar, they make a great on-the-go snack especially since they are packaged with a cute little spoon!
And it doesn’t hurt that Kelly Slater sponsors the company as well Check out his video here
While they taste awesome and are super healthy for you, they cost a lot…over $3.00 each! So, at a fraction of the cost here is my chia pod recipe!
Chocolate Banana Chia Pudding
1 can coconut milk
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 tablespoons cacao powder or cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
-In a blender or food processor, blend together coconut milk, banana, cacao powder and vanilla. Pour mixture into a bowl.
-Add chia seeds and stir. (continuously stir for a few minutes so chia seeds do not clump!)
-Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Chia seeds will absorb liquid resulting in a pudding consistency.
-Portion out pudding in single-serve containers and enjoy!
