Chia Seeds - 1/2 cup (or 1/4 cup if thinner consistency desired)
Coconut Milk -beverage- (or Rice or Hemp Milk) - 2 cups
Brown Rice Syrup - 2-3 tbsp
Organic Peanut Butter - 1 tbsp
Banana (mashed) - 1
Sea Salt - pinch
Ground Cinnamon - 1/2 tsp
This recipe can be made without PB and Banana, but I've found that both of these ingredients add protein + nutrients, while also serving to thicken the pudding. You may try alternative ingredients to thicken the pudding if so desired.
Heat coconut milk, brown rice syrup, salt to a simmer.
Mash one medium-sized banana and whisk into coconut milk mixture; add 1 tbsp of peanut butter.
Add chia seeds, cinnamon, and sea salt. Whisk until fully mixed and remove from heat.
Let sit for 15 minutes for serving to thicken.
May be served warm, at room temperature or chilled.
