Chocolate + Banana Chia Pudding
I have some exciting news! Eat Smart is now available in the USA! My book was first published in September last year in the UK and due to the success I can finally announce that today it will be launched in the states in Barnes & Noble * and on Amazon *. I can barely control my excitement after waiting patiently for months!
So to celebrate, I thought I would share with you one of my favourite recipes from the book. This is my Chocolate and Banana Chia Pudding. It is very similar to a chocolate mousse, but is entirely plant-based and made from all natural, healthy ingredients. It’s so good I have even occasionally made it for breakfast! Who doesn’t want a chocolate mousse for breakfast?
It’s quick and easy to make with simple ingredients. Perfect to whizz up for friends after a dinner party… They’ll never know it’s made from bananas and avocado. That can be our little secret.
I really hope you enjoy my recipes in Eat Smart! Please do let me know what you think by sending me photos on Instagram and Twitter, I always love seeing your recreations. And even better, please do leave a review on Amazon!
