What kid doesn't love the creamy texture and sweet taste of pudding? Here's a healthy alternative with an added superfood kick to make both mom and kids happy. This pudding uses coconut milk (or you can substitute any milk alternative) instead of dairy, banana as a natural sweetener, and chia seeds as a thickener and nutritional boost. Chia seeds are a great way to sneak in more omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and protein into your kids diets. Check out these 10 Reasons to add Chia Seeds to your diet.
I started with this recipe for 3-Ingrediant Banana Pudding and simply added 1T of cocoa powder to please chocolate lovers. The cocoa powder also does a good job of concealing the chia seeds from any little food detectives just looking for a reason to refuse to try it. Garnish it with some fresh fruit, and you have a great kid pleasing snack.
