Chocolate 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 was smoother because of blending the banana and peanut butter before mixing in with the chia seeds and milk.  

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 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)
2 tsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 small very ripe banana, sliced
2 dates
2 Tbsp peanut butter

Blend the banana, dates, peanut butter and 1/4 cup of the milk in a blender until smooth.

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).
My favorite food processor is the  KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor

For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender
