This four-ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Chia Pudding makes an easy, kid-friendly snack. It’s packed with protein and healthy fats and is easy to prep ahead of time.
As I may have mentioned a time or two, Squish likes to eat. Pretty much all day long. So I do my best to keep healthy snacks on hand and although I’m not against store-bought snacks, I like having homemade snacks on hand when I can. I’m always looking for snack ideas that I can make ahead of time for him to eat throughout the week and this chia pudding fits the bill!
I resisted the idea of chia pudding for a long time. For me personally, it’s a little bit of a texture thing…but in an effort to keep from passing my picky eating habits on to Squish, I decided to make a batch for him to try. And guess what? Big hit!
This pudding is super easy to make and great to have on hand for a quick snack or addition to breakfast or lunch. The flavor possibilities are endless but I went with a classic peanut butter and banana combo.
Here’s how you make it:Print

This Peanut Butter Banana Chia Pudding makes an easy, kid-friendly snack. It’s packed with protein and healthy fats and is easy to prep ahead of time.
- Prep Time: 2 minutes
- Total Time: 2 minutes
- Yield: serves 4-6 1x
- 2 medium ripe bananas
- 1 cup milk (or kefir)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until well combined.
- Refrigerate at least an hour. Pudding will continue to thicken as it sits.
If you don’t mind a little chunkier texture, you could just mash the bananas by hand.
Pretty simple, right? If you’re a chia pudding fan, you should also try this Apple Pie Chia Pudding or this Coconut Chia Pudding. Not a fan of the chia seeds? You might like my Chocolate Avocado Pudding recipe instead!

I can never say no to a pudding much less one with chia. I’m sure kids would love this!

I never thought of mashing bananas in my chia pudding! I’m glad he liked it! Kids can be hit or miss on texture! I bet you could totally spin chia pudding as a fun “frog egg” dessert, especially at Halloween!

Ha I’ve avoided the chia pudding thing too. It’s a consistency thing. That and overnight oats. I just can’t handle them. This does sound pretty delicious though…
All I see are annoying ads and comments. Where are the actual recipes?

By far my daughter’s favourite food. I had to cut out A LOT of food to be able to continue to breastfeed my daughter due to allergies and intolerances… this recipe was a life saver. So easy and so delicious. Even my daycare requested the recipe. Thank you
