Cha Cha Cha Chia….Pudding

I am always on the hunt for healthy, easy, delicious breakfast options and recently have been obsessed with Chia Pudding. It is super easy to make and has a tapioca-like texture with a slight crunch and is packed with anti-inflammatory omega-3’s.

You will need chia seeds, I buy mine from Trader Joe’s, vanilla, light coconut milk (the kind in a can), and honey or agave if you prefer. In a small bowl, you will mix 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1 cup light coconut milk, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp honey. Simply stir until combined and pour into a mason jar or other air tight container and chill in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, you will wake up to thick, creamy chia pudding that can be topped with fresh fruit or eaten plain. This fiber rich treat can be eaten for breakfast or a snack and will help you debloat. I love how fool proof this is to make and that it is perfect for people that need something ready to grab and go.

Southern Banana Pudding

I love the South! All the gentlemen, lovely ladies and the Southern accents draw me in. The food cooked from scratch with premium ingredients and full fat butter are mouth watering. I especially love the dessert, Southern Banana Pudding. 

Since I don’t live in the south, I need to get my fix somewhere and I often pop by Magnolia Bakery to satisfy my craving. They have perfected Banana Pudding and offer free samples for everyone who walks through the door. The bakery is an outpost of their flagship store in New York and I couldn’t be more pleased that there is a location in Los Angeles. The pudding has layers of vanilla wafers, fresh bananas, and vanilla pudding. I suspect there is some whipped cream folded into it to keep it light in texture. 

This pudding is divine and is packaged in three sizes, mini, small, and large. The bakery also offers catering sizes for parties. I promise this sweet fluff will tanalize your tastebuds and have you craving it time and time again. So get on over to your closest location and snap up a carton or two, you will go bananas over it. 

Magnolia Bakery Banana Pudding is $3.50 for the mini, $5 for the small, and $6.50 for the large. Single bowl is $35 (serves 10) the double bowl is $60 (serves 20)
