Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana approx 100g
  • Two thirds cup milk or milk alternative approx 160 ml
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds

Instructions

  • Blend the banana and milk together as if you were making a smoothie
  • Add the chia seeds, and stir them through the smoothie, If you prefer you give a few pulses to mix them in through the smoothie, but so as not to completely demolish them.
  • Pour into a serving bowl or jar, refrigerate for a minimum of 20 mins before serving

Notes

  • Chia seeds take time to soften and gel, please ensure you leave the pudding for a minimum of 20 mins before serving to ensure you get a smooth custard-like texture. You can prepare it well in advance, ie prepare and refrigerate overnight.
  • This recipe will work with any type of milk, ie cows milk, soy, almond, oat, any milk that tickles your fancy
  • This recipe has no added sugar, depending on your kid's palates you may need to add some, a little maple syrup, honey (for over ones) or even a date popped into the smoothie will add sweetness. But try it without as you never know!
