Strawberry Banana Chia Seed Pudding

June 13, 2018 | Author: Ashley McCrary

Sweet Summertime is here and that means being home with my two cuties everyday. It also means that I will be fighting with Eloise over what she will eat every morning for breakfast. Nora is easy because she is just a baby and will be drinking her milk, haha. The morning will usually start off with me asking Elle what she wants to eat. She will usually say something crazy like cake, a donut, a bag of chips or a slice of pizza. My answer is always NO, and i’ll ask again what she wants to eat. Ultimately, I make the choice because she thinks she is living in Fairytale land where she can splash in a chocolate waterfall and climb a lollipop tree.

To compromise with her demands, I love recreating healthy recipes that taste so amazing it makes her believe it’s better than a DING DANG DONUT. This Strawberry Banana Chia Seed Pudding is almost too good to actually be healthy and serves her 3 year old taste buds perfectly. The main reason I love this recipe so much is because it can be made the night before and chilled in the fridge for an easy breakfast. Not only did Eloise love it, but Joel did too. Instead of his protein shakes in the morning, I am planning to start making this pudding with a scoop of protein powder that will be easy for a grab and go breakfast for him.

The moral to this story is to trick your kids and make them believe what their eating is really a treat, but it’s actually healthy.

    Hi Ashley,
    Could I substitute the almond milk for coconut milk?? Do you think it will become to stiff??
    I can’t wait to try this!
