The smell of gingerbread filling the kitchen during the holidays is so irresistible, and this recipe turns the classic flavor of gingerbread into a delicious pudding that you can enjoy for a healthy treat or breakfast. We found the inspiration for this recipe over at Eat the Gains. Yum!!!

Gingerbread Chia Pudding
Serves 2
Paleo, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free


  • 2 medium bananas
  • 3/4 cup plain or vanilla unsweetened almond milk*
  • 2 tsp organic unsulphured molasses
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds

Optional toppings: dried cranberries or cherries, chopped walnuts or pecans, coconut whipped cream


  1. Place the first seven ingredients, (not the chia seeds), into a high powered blender or food processor. Process on high until smooth and all ingredients are combined, about 1 minute.
  2. Transfer to a medium sized resealable bowl. Stir in chia seeds until combined. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
  3. Spoon into serving dishes and top with desired toppings, or eat as is. Enjoy!

Note: *you can adjust the consistency by adding a little less almond milk if you like thicker pudding, and more if you like your pudding a little thinner.

Hope this helps brighten your holidays!

Be Well,
