Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Banana Chia Seed Pudding (DF, GF)

This was SOOOOO  good.  My co-workers also liked this !!  I need to start making this on a regular basis - it is GREAT to satisfy a sweet tooth !!!   Eat it as a snack or for dessert.

This is a GREAT way to eat more chia seeds, which are high in fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, manganese, phosphorus, and protein.

This recipe is adapted from this recipe.  

1 and 1/3 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/3 cup Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)
2 Tbsp  Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 very ripe banana, mashed
1 Tbsp  Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 tsp brown sugar or maple syrup or date syrup (DF use date syrup)
2 Tbsp natural peanut butter (no sugar)

Put all the ingredients into a glass jar with tight fitting lid and stir or shake until well combined.   
Then refrigerate for a few hours or overnight (shake or stir occasionally).
