Plus the fact is sooo easy to make! I have it a couple times a week.
Start by mashing your banana till it's nice and smooth. Then add a tablespoon of chia seed.
Next, add a quarter cup of instant oatmeal.
I haven't always added oatmeal. When I'm doing a Whole 30 Challenge, I eliminate all grains from my diet. So, FYI, this is just as good without the oatmeal! :)
Mix them up until they are well blended.
Then add milk until it is mostly covered. I like to use cashew milk. The consistency is very creamy, and it's only 25 calories per cup, but you can use any milk you like.
Once it's well blended, you need to put it in the fridge for 10-20 minutes. This just makes it thicken up.
Now you'll want to add all of your yummy toppings.
My favorite toppings are chopped up apples, raisins, sliced almonds, and cinnamon. There is no need for any sugar, honey or syrup. The banana is all the sweetness you'll need, trust me!
Cook it in the microwave for approximately two minutes.
Then enjoy! It'll be gone before you know it!
