Banana Chia Seed Breakfast Custard

Makes: Serves 4

Banana Chia Seed Breakfast Custard


  • 13.5oz can of coconut milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 4-5 dates
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • banana slices and toasted walnuts for serving


Pour the coconut milk into a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Place the egg yolks in a bowl. When the coconut milk starts to scald, slowly pour about 1 cup of the hot milk into the egg yolks while mixing vigorously with a whisk. Add the egg/milk mixture back to the pan and heat over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. The mixture should thicken slightly, do not boil.

Pour the hot liquid into a blender and add the banana, dates, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Blend on high speed to combine for 2-3 minutes, until very smooth. Add the chia seeds and pulse to evenly combine. Pour the mixture into 4 ramekins or small jars.

Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve topped with banana slices and toasted walnuts. Enjoy!


*To make this egg-free simply omit the egg yolks and blend everything up in the blender.
