Vanilla Power Pudding with Chia Seeds
Makes 2-4 servings.
- 1 cup Low-Fat Goats Milk, Dairy, Coconut or Soy Yogurt
- 1/4 cup Chia Seeds
- 1 large, ripe Banana, mashed
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp Almond Extract
- 1/4 cup Almonds
- 1 Tbsp Date Sugar or Stevia
- 1-2 scoops of Vanilla Protein Power
- 1-2 soaked Dates
- a handful of Raisins and/or Goji Berries

Combine the yogurt, mashed banana, optional dates, date sugar or stevia, and vanilla and almond extracts thoroughly, and then gently stir in the chia seeds. Toss in the almonds and extra add-ins of your choice, and place in the refrigerator. Stir every few minutes for at least fifteen minutes, when the pudding becomes ready to eat. Serve chilled. Wonderful when refrigerated overnight.
