High Protein Banana Pudding

High Protein Banana Pudding
This is definitely another recipe geared towards my gym friends as it is high in protein and full of all sorts of energy boosting ingredients.  If you think of the type of banana pudding that you make layered with vanilla wafers or would serve at a dinner party, this is not exactly the same.  The consistency is a tiny bit slimy due to the combination of fresh bananas and chia seeds, but the flavor is ridiculously good and very satisfying.  So if you are looking for a healthy dessert, or a sweet protein filled snack before bed, this treat is perfect.  I had some last night about an hour before I fell asleep and I felt great this morning at the gym.  And my son even likes this, so it has to be good!  (And it is vegan!)

High Protein Banana Pudding
3 large bananas, slightly mashed
1 lb. silken organic tofu, drained
1/2 C. almond butter
1/2 C. dry chia seeds
1/3 C. pure maple syrup
1 T. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

Place all the ingredients in a blender and combine until smooth.  Let sit for about ten minutes and then blend again.  Pour into a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least two hours.  Serve with a sprinkling of granola on top, if desired.
