Sweets for Breakfast?
Camelina Banana Pudding
- 3 cups of nut milk of choice
- 1/2 cup of camelina or chia seeds (camelina seeds are nuttier in flavor and grow locally here in the PNW)
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 3 tbsp of pure maple syrup
- 2-3 ripe bananas
Blend all ingredients (except seeds) in a blender until smooth. Pour into a mixing bowl and add seeds. Whisk for a minute or so, and then let sit for about 10 minutes. Seeds with start to congeal and your milk mixture will start to thicken. Whisk briefly once more and then with a rubber spatula, gently transfer into a glass container with a tight seal. Refrigerate over night, or a minimum of four hours, and voila!
This is a healthy, versatile treat that can be eaten as an on-the-go breakfast or for a simply delightful dessert! I like to add it to my breakfast oats or granola, or top some full fat, plain yogurt (such as FAGE) with a few dollops of pudding, an extra drizzle of maple syrup and some fresh fruit.
