Coconut Banana Chia Pudding

When I think of Chia seeds, my mind instantly wanders to the sight of my fro-growing Obama Chia Pet or makes me gag when I think back to all of the putrid foul chia seed recipes I have tried. But after dry heaving enough times, I have finally made a recipe that gets you that healthy dose of Omega-3's and fiber and will have you craving bowls and bowls. Sprinkle a touch of cinnamon, add some luscious berries or drizzle with Manuka Honey to reap even more benefits and make it taste that much more delicious.

2 cups rice milk
4 Tbs whole Chia Seeds
1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs agave nectar

Place milk and chia seeds in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer, while occasionally wisking. When the mixture begins to thicken add the banana, coconut, vanilla and agave and simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and place in 4 small serving dishes, and cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Sprinkle with cinnamon, add some berries or any other garnish you may crave & devour!
