Truth be told, I’ve never been a huge pudding fan. I wasn’t the typical kid who had a mom that put a snack pack into my lunch. When I got older, I learned that pudding had a lot of sugar in them and I stayed away from the snack.
However, I do love an easy and quick snack or meal. This is where my strawberry banana keto pudding comes in. This pudding is pack full of nutrients.
4 Ingredients only
- Chia seeds
- Strawberry protein powder
- Banana extract
The protein powder that I enjoy using is the MRM brand. I really like how they don’t use Splenda and use stevia and monk fruit instead. I like these two alternatives to sugar as they are found in plants naturally.
I love using monk fruit in my baking or even nonbaking items. To me, I do no get an aftertaste from it and it’s a 1:1 ratio to table sugar. A great benefit with monk fruit and the keto diet is that it does not affect your blood sugar (1). As an added bonus monk fruit is safe for breastfeeding women, pregnancy, and children.
Notes about the recipe
I enjoy a thicker pudding consistency and experimented with how much chia seed to use. I started with two tablespoons but the end result was 2.5 tablespoons to one-half cup of liquid. Doing three tablespoons also sounds like a good consistency. Play around with the consistency you like best.
For the liquid in this recipe, I used macadamia milk since I have come to fall in love with the stuff. However, it is a pricer nut milk. To save money on this recipe you can use the other alternatives such as cashew or almond milk.
Also, with the protein powder that I have used in this recipe, it mixes great with just water and I still enjoy the taste. Doing that will save you even more money.
Enjoy this meal with a nice fatty coffee. This will help up your fat with this meal. Another way to up your fat with this snack or breakfast is to add some heavy whipping cream to it.
Take out one tablespoon of the liquid in the recipe and place in one tablespoon of the heavy whipping cream. This will also make the keto pudding creamier.
