Chia Pudding (La Revolution)

I have been out for a while since the hubby and I have been doing a lot of diet changes, most of which are steering away from delicious food recipes and more towards nutrition paste. Essentially we are trying to dissociate food and taste and instead eat only for health. Anyway, along the way some things ended up being delicious anyway, one of which is chia pudding! The other being peanut butter + coconut oil = heaven.


1 cup yogurt (any kind you like but of course I use the plain jane variety)
1/4 cup berries
1 banana or 1 tbsp banana powder
1 oz chia seeds (organic, non gmo of course - always implied)
3 tbsp coconut flakes
1 oz coconut oil
1 oz chopped almonds (or other nut)

Blend everything together, don't liquify the whole thing, just blend lightly so that it's all mixed but there may still be small chunks of fruit and nuts. Then put this in the fridge for at least an hour. It is a delicious homemade fruity pudding that is nutrient dense and full of good fats. Adjust the chia seed amount depending on whether you like the pudding more or less firm.

I usually like to make mine at night and enjoy for breakfast for max flavor infusion and texture.

I've seen a lot of puddings that include adding additional fruits and goodies on top and of course so many different varieties.
