Banana mousse pudding
I need to start by explaining how I came to call this recipe banana mousse pudding.
I’ve actually just tweaked the name a little bit, as part of the process of updating some of my older recipes. So forgive me if you’re confused, it used to be “banana chia mousse.”
This recipe is kind of a hybrid of a custard, a mousse, and a chia pudding. I actually adapted this from a chia custard recipe, but I think mousse or pudding is a better description.
This divine, creamy mousse can be eaten as an indulgent breakfast, but it also works perfectly as a dessert or snack.
It’s also pretty versatile, in that it can be eaten warm or cold. If you serve it straight away, it has a custard type consistency.
I actually prefer to chill it in the fridge overnight, so that it thickens and becomes a pudding-like breakfast.
Just add a handful of berries on top for a simple brekkie or dessert.
