Chocolate Banana Chia Pudding with Warm Spices and Granola

Chocolate Banana Chia Pudding with Warm Spices and Granola
Ah yes… you’ve seen this all before, but hopefully you’ll find this version of chia pudding a little more exciting with the addition of granola which gives it texture and crunch!  It’s definitely much more fun to eat, and for those of you who don’t like chia pudding you know what I mean. Try this one and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how good it is - not to mention packed with lots of healthy nutritional goodness.

1 medium ripe banana mashed
1 Tbsp raw cacao powder
2 Tbsp chia seed
2 tsp pure maple syrup
Sprinkle ground cinnamon and cardamom
Favorite milk – I used home made cashew
teeny pinch sea salt - optional

In a medium sized glass or 8 oz jar add all the ingredients except milk and stir very well, then add the milk, I did this in a small bowl then poured it into my glass, you decide your method. Cover and store in fridge for chia to swell about 4 hours or overnight. When ready to eat top with granola and shaved chocolate if you have it.




  1. Easy peasy and a yummy flavour- I never thought of putting mashed banana in it! Adding a bit of instant coffee in here with it all is delicious too :)

    1. Hi Tessie,
      I was going to add coffee too, I bet that was great! So glad you enjoyed this. xo

  2. I love overnight chia pudding! I add a bit of oat flakes to mine and tastes great but you had such a great idea adding granola, so yum. :-)

  3. thanks Gemma, the granola gives it crunch which I love!

  4. How much milk should I add? :) thank you
