I’m more than a little obsessed with Chia Seeds right now. I love the pudding texture they give you when you soak them for a little bit. The recipe here called for almond milk but I felt that coconut milk makes the pudding even thicker and creamier.

This is a breakfast for serious dessert aficionados. The combination of the honey smashed bananas with the deep, dark chocolate chia swirls is intense. If you’d like to layer the 2 components more clearly then stick your cup in the fridge after pouring in the chia mixture and let it set for another 15 minutes. Then add the banana on top. I prefer just glopping all of it together.
