Make-Ahead Breakfast: Banana-Chia Pudding

This is an absolutely delicious raw, vegan and filling breakfast or dessert packed with chia seeds, bananas and cashews!

Raw Banana Cinnamon Chia Pudding

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cashew milk (homemade recipe below)
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 2 tsp. maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. lucuma
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla essence
  • 1/2 banana

Homemade Cashew Milk

Makes 4 cups

  • 1 cup cashews (soaked for six hours)
  • 1 Medjool date
  • 4 cups of water
  • pinch of sea salt

Directions

1. Mix all of the ingredients for the cashew milk in a high speed blender for over a minute, until it's creamy and has a milk-like consistency (this will make up about four cups, and the leftovers can be kept in the fridge).

2. In a bowl, combine the cashew milk with everything except for the chia seeds and mix well. A whisk is perfect for this.

3. Add the chia seeds and whisk for a minute or so to make sure the seeds are spread evenly and aren't clumped up.

4. Let the mixture settle for a minute and whisk again. The pudding should start to thicken at this point.

5. Put into the refrigerator and let set for at least 30 minutes (sometimes, I will make this the night before to eat for breakfast the next day).

6. Slice up the banana and place over the top, sprinkle some cinnamon and voilĂ ! Enjoy!
