Chia Seed Pudding with Warm Peaches and Bananas
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened soy milk
1 ripe (but not overripe) peach, diced
1 ripe banana, cut in medium-thin slices
1. Put your chia seeds into a bowl and add the soy milk. Stir. Wait just a few minutes (this is a good time for cutting your fruit if you haven't already) and stir again. Repeat this just once more. The chia seed pudding should set fairly quickly, though the texture will become thicker the longer you wait. If you prefer to do this step the night before, then you can refrigerate your chia seed and soy milk mixture overnight.
2. Toss the diced peach and banana in a generous amount of cinnamon until well-coated. On the stovetop, place the diced peach and banana in a non-stick pan. Turn the stove to medium heat. Cover the pan. After about 5 minutes, begin stirring the fruit gently and sporadically. Let cook for another 5 minutes, lowering the heat if necessary. By the time you finish heating the peach and banana, there should be a thick natural syrup holding the fruit together and it will seem like many of the banana chunks disappeared (they are just a part of the syrup, silly!).
3. Scoop the (now nearly-compote) fruit mixture on top of your chia pudding. Mix in well. Should serve two!
