Are you searching for healthy, sugar free dessert or snack ideas?
We all know it: the afternoon cravings and the longing for a sweet dessert after dinner.
Even though we’re full, it seems like there’s something missing. Most sugar free snacks use stevia or artificial sweeteners. A better approach, and the healthiest way to sweeten treats, is by using whole foods like bananas or dates. They contain natural (intrinsic) sugar and fiber which slows down the sugar absorption in your body. I like to use these 2 whole foods for smoothies, smoothie bowls, and other sweet, healthy snacks.
Today’s recipe is a chocolate banana chia pudding that is super easy to make. You can choose your own toppings as desired. This healthy vegan dessert contains 360 calories, 11 grams of plant based protein, 20g fiber, and is high in omega-3 (for the whole recipe and without the toppings). You can split the recipe into two servings if you’d like.
Chocolate Banana Chia Pudding Nutrition
I use cronometer (free app) to track the nutrition of my healthy vegan recipes and meal plans. One serving of the recipe with topping (coconut and berries) contains 260 calories, is high in fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin B6, and vitamin K.
This chocolate banana chia pudding doesn’t contain any added sugar and makes a great weight loss recipe. If you need it sweeter you can add dried dates into the blender with the mix. You can also use the whole recipe as one serving and eat as a filling breakfast.
