Maybe you add them to oatmeal.
Maybe you blend them up in smoothies.
Maybe you drink lemon water with chia seeds for a cleansing drink.
Maybe you add them to baked goods.
Or maybe you’ve never tried them at all.
I happen to love chia seeds for all of these uses! These banana breakfast custards will give you yet another excellent reason to use them. And if you’ve never tried them, now you will want too!
If you’ve never made chia pudding before prepare to be amazed. The seeds gel up and form a creamy custard that reminds me of tapioca pudding! Much like aborio rice, chia seeds are magical. Who knew so much creaminess could come out of such small things. I’ve also found they work wonderfully to bind gluten-free baked goods!
These custards are a healthy and delicious breakfast, snack, or dessert. You make them the night before and let them sit in the refrigerator overnight. They are sweetened only with bananas and dates, but taste like an indulgence. Truth be told, I am a fan of anything you eat for breakfast that replicates dessert!
