Chia Puddings and I haven’t always been on the best of terms. I always want them to be fancier and more flavorful than what they generally want to be (just seeds soaked in water/liquid and served with some fruit). So we had to have this conversation sometime last year about it and decided that I have to add those extra extra things to mine.

Exhibit 1 Lemon Curd chia pudding, and 2 Golden Milk Orange Ginger Chia Pudding. This one today is banana bread in chia pudding form. Banana is blended into non dairy milk and chia seeds soaked in it. The pudding is layered with well spiced caramelized bananas, nuts (which also can be toasted with spice) and some large flake coconut. This Banana chia pudding has all the Flavors and textures to brighten up the morning!

This banana bread chia pudding is easy, delicious and fun! If you try it, let me know how it turned out. Tag me on Instagram. Also these small pudding jars look fun and pretty but make it super hard to eat from :). I usually make the puddings in a bowl.

Ingredients 
 

Chia Pudding:

  • 1 1/2 cup non dairy milk such as almond milk
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon + nutmeg
  • sugar/sweetener as needed
  • a pinch of salt
  • 3 to 4 tbsp chia seeds

Caramelized Bananas:

  • 2 ripe bananas , sliced
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar or vegan brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp non dairy milk
  • a good pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg

Jar:

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 2 tbsp flaked coconut

Instructions 

  • Blend all the ingredients under chia pudding except chia seeds until smooth. Or mash the banana and mix in with the rest of the ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat then take off heat. (I like to cook the mixture so the banana flavor intensifies and adds a more baked/caramelized banana bread flavor.)
  • Mix in the chia seeds into the hot mixture and let sit. Whisk again after 5 minutes then chill for atleast 15 minutes before layering. (Chia seeds can be mixed into the mixture without boiling as well. Mix in, refrigerate and mix after 15 mins to distribute the seeds well. Chill for a few hours to hydrate before layering)
  • Caramelize the bananas: Combine banana slices, sugar, non dairy milk, nutmeg and a pinch of salt in a skillet over medium heat. Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally. about 5 minutes.
  • Toast the walnuts or pecans on a skillet until fragrant (2 to 3 minutes). - optional
  • Layer the banana chia pudding in jars with toasted walnuts, caramelized bananas and flaked coconut. Top with some coconut flakes and a sprinkle of cinnamon or cardamom.

Notes

To make this nut-free, use nut-free milk and omit the walnuts and use toasted seeds of choice. 
Add in other layers such as berries, chocolate.

      awesome!

  3. Maneesha says:

    Hi Richa! These look fabulous! Is it possible to make them with flax instead of chia?

    1. Richa says:

      flax seeds dont gel as well without making them into a meal, and then they taste pretty unique. You can use basil seeds (tukmaria) that are used in falooda. Or make it into an oat parfait. Cook the steel cut oats in the banana milk mixture until done and layer with the caramelized bananas etc.

    Very lovely! Thanks for sharing the chia seed pudding recipe.

      Thanks!

  5. Olivia says:

    I sooo agree about chia seed puddings. They’re so popular but they always taste a bit disappointing. These look great, though – I’ll have to give it a try!

    1. Richa says:

      These are really good. They are almost a dessert with the caramelized bananas.

  6. Jane says:

    Ha HA! i agree about the jars……have been thinking this ever since the trend took off. Mine will be in a bowl… 😉

    1. Richa says:

      I make bowls or if jars, then they are bigger 🙂
