Red Raspberry Banana Chia Seed Pudding (DF, GF)

My taste tester LOVED this... she wanted more of it !!!

I LOVE raspberries and I LOVE bananas - so why not put the 2 together.  This was SOOOOO good - it did have a strong raspberry flavor - which I wanted and LOVED !!!!

You can eat this as a snack or for dessert or for breakfast or for lunch.  

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.  

3 Tbsp Chia Seeds
2 very ripe bananas, sliced
1 and 1/2 cups frozen red raspberries  (partially thawed)

Blend the bananas and raspberries  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
