Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Chia Pudding

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Chia Pudding

As you might know, I’m addicted to smoothies.

Several versions of this latest drug-of-choice have been fueling my mornings since January. That’s almost four months of smoothies slurped at least three times per week. Yikes!

I don’t think my desire for cold, creamy drinks will die down any time soon, especially now that summer is fast-approaching. Temperatures are already hitting the 85-degree mark in Gainesville.

Despite the deliciousness of smoothies, I’m running out of ways to reinvent them. Luckily, I remembered pinning the following recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Chia Pudding a while back, and it proved to be a welcome break from my slurp-able usual Monday morning.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Chia Pudding

I found an almost-empty Peter Pan Natural Crunchy peanut butter jar begging to be used for an overnight breakfast.

After more than 12 hours in the fridge, the pudding looked like a sponge, literally! I’m not going to lie. I was a bit skeptical about how much this would taste like “pudding,” but how could I not enjoy a recipe that includes three food loves of my life: chocolate, peanut butter and banana.

Luckily, my worst nightmare of eating cafeteria-style chocolate pudding went unfounded. The texture of chia seeds with milk made the pudding more like mousse or French silk pie.

YUM 🙂

There’s no doubt I’m adding this recipe to my regular summer breakfast rotation. The pudding is like eating dessert for breakfast and packs a hefty nutritional punch.

Thanks, Love, Peace, and Food! Enjoy 🙂
