1/2 cup Chia seeds
1/4 cup Cocoa powder
1 can Coconut cream
2 ripe Bananas
3-4 tbsp Maple syrup
Blend all ingredients on high for 3-4 minutes until well blended and chia seeds are mostly blended up. Pour pudding into glass jars and put in refrigerator overnight. Eat it plain out of the jar if you’re in a hurry or jazz it up with some peanut butter, coconut shreds, bananas, and/or berries if you’re feeling extra decadent.
*This recipe is great because by blending the chia seeds it breaks them up so you don’t have to worry about having chai seeds stuck between your teeth like with traditional unblended chia pudding.
The kids will love this, you can even freeze into popsicle molds, and sell it to the kids as ice cream.

This makes it a great food to eat postpartum, especially when you don’t have time to make breakfast every morning, make a batch once a week, and keep them in the fridge for the week.
