Nutrition

Great for breakfast, or busy days like track meets, this pudding will provide sustained energy and a tasty treat!

Bananas: I toss overripe bananas into a bag in the freezer and then thaw them to sweeten this and other recipes. Choose fair trade, organic bananas, when you can find them.

Coconut Milk: Ensure you read the ingredients list on the coconut milk you purchase—it should contain nothing but coconut milk and water, no preservatives! Aroy-D brand coconut milk is a good choice. The fat in coconut milk is very healthy, and can help with weight loss—ignore any “fat-reduced” coconut milks as they replace the fat with much less healthy options.

Chia seeds: A powerhouse of nutrition, “chia” means “strength”—it is truly a superfood. Aztec warriors prized chia seeds as a source of sustained energy. Chia seeds are rich in fiber, omega-3 fats (we need more of those), protein, and minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, and iron. They also absorb many times their volume in water, making them a great thickening agent.

Cocoa Powder: Raw organic cocoa powder is by far the healthiest choice. But, non-raw options like Camino cocoa powder are also good.
