Almond Chocolate Paleo Chia Pudding

I'm thinking about writing a book, about my favorite thing in the world— breakfast. Literally, what's not to love about breakfast. Think about every food out there, could you make it a breakfast food? Yes, of course you can! How? Add an egg. But sometimes, a girl needs a cholesterol break. I know, I just said it.

Agh, Paleo people please don't kill me! I just have had so many eggs in the last couple days, I just need a runny yolk break. Odds, are i'll be back at it tomorrow, but I just really wanted to try my hand at some chia pudding. Initially, I really wanted to do a rendition of a peanut butter chocolate pudding. But, we don't eat peanuts! So I decided the next best thing was almond butter, every Paleo's go-to substitute for peanut butter. Then what goes better with a "peanut butter" chocolate pudding... bananas! And it was, B-A-N-A-N-A-S! In the best kind of way. 

3/4 c. almond milk, unsweetened
1 tbs. almond butter
2 tsp. maple syrup (or honey, or stevia)
1/2 c. black chia seeds
1 tbs. chocolate protein powder
1/2 tbs. cocoa powder
2 tsp. maca powder
Garnish with sliced bananas *Optional*

Yields ~ 1 serving 

Directions: Mix everything together (not the bananas). Place in fridge for at least 4 hours (or overnight is best). Garnish with sliced bananas and ~ENJOY!
