We seem to have an excess of bananas this week. In an effort to use some of them up, I’ve been playing. This pudding took me two minutes to whip up. It would make a great pre-workout snack—the fructose in the agave nectar provides slow release energy to keep ya going while the dates provide some quick energy with their easy to digest glucose. It also has a decent fiber and omega-3 content due to the flaxseed and chia. It could totally pass as a dessert or a sweet but healthy snack for the kiddos.
- 3 medium, well ripened bananas
- 1 Tbls agave nectar
- 4 soft dates (soak them if they are dried)
- 2 Tbls ground flaxseed
- 1 Tbls chia seeds (optional)
- Put it all in the food processor and blend for until its all mixed together.
- Eat right away
You could also put the mixture in popsicle molds and stick them in the freezer for a tasty cool summer treat.
