Banana Chia Pie

2 bananas
½ cup ground chia seeds
½ grated unsweetened coconut
½ – 1 cup almond milk
1 cup almonds or pecans (roughly ground)
4 dried dates


  • Soak the dates in a bit of water to soften
  • Soak the grated coconuts in water to soften
  • Roughly grind the almonds or pecans to where there are still a few larger pieces
  • Grind the chia seeds

For the crust: Place the dates in a food processor along with the almonds or pecans and mix. With your hands, take out the goey mixture and place at the bottom of some fun bowls and pat down until firm.

For the filling: Combine the bananas, ground chia seeds, coconuts and almond milk in a food processor and blend until smooth. Place in the bowls on top of the crust.

This “pie” can be had for a snack – or even breakfast! It is delicious and packed with protein, omega 3’s and potassium. Although there are a few steps, this pudding “pie” is easier to make than it sounds and WELL worth the effort!

    The pictured Chia pie is my attempt. Unfortunately, I didn’t grind the chia, so the texture was a little off and the filling was denser than it should have been. Katherine recommends grinding the Chia with a coffee grinder for much better (and tastier) results.

    I mixed 1 part of the banana chia pie with one part strawberry yogurt and had it for breakfast. Yum!
