Standard

IMG_2785[1]

We had this for breakfast yesterday morning (and again today)…and it was so good.   Lots of good natural fats and Omegas, with minimal added sweetener.  I made a huge batch so we can get more than one meal out of it, but you can certainly adapt it however you see fit. 🙂 

Date Sweetened Banana Chia Pudding (GAPS, GF)

approx. 8 servings

2 cans coconut milk (whole, not low fat)

3/4 c. whole chia seed

1 T. vanilla (click here to see how to make your own)

10 pitted dates

5 bananas

Blend the coconut milk, vanilla, dates and bananas until smooth.  It can take a little while, and you may have to scrape the sides of the blender and help it along a bit.  Be patient, it’s worth it. 🙂

After the other ingredients are blended well, add the chia seed and blend until it is evenly dispersed.  Hand mix if you can’t get it well enough.  I think it would be preferable if you could chill this overnight…but I was short on time.  I made it, let it sit 15 minutes, and it was still good. 🙂 

You could have this for a good, healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.  Top with sliced bananas, chopped walnuts, whatever you want. 🙂  Enjoy!

About earthmuffinmom

I am a Christian mom and wife who is watching and waiting impatiently for the Lord's return in a world that is getting nuttier by the day. My main interests are in the areas of Biblical end times/eschatology and early Genesis/creation. To understand the end...you must understand the beginning! My other passion is health and healing! Our family has also been greatly blessed over the past several years with healing through natural health and diet (generally Paleo/grain free). I love sharing this information with other people, and helping folks in their healing journeys. That being said...I am not a doctor...so I'm not responsible for any decisions you may make in regards to your own health. Other stuff: I am married to a wonderful man who I have had the privilege of having three beautiful children with. We have been married for over sixteen years. I work full time, but have the blessing of working from my home, and I homeschool my oldest child. We enjoy homesteading...and while we live in a small, rural town...we have worked hard to develop our yard into a "little bit of country in town"...complete with our "farm dog," Buddy, and five chickens. Thanks for checking out my blog!
