The Banana Cream protein powder has a little sucralose in it (it is the only artificial ingredient), so I’m also including a way to make an all-natural version using their unflavored Multi-Purpose protein powder. I used freeze-dried bananas and stevia to mimic the Banana Cream flavor. Fresh banana should also work, but it may oxidize and turn your pudding a bit more brown.
Either way, you must give this Banana Chia Protein Pudding a try! So good!

A note about substitutions: This recipe should also work with whey protein powders. Pea protein might also be ok, but you may need additional liquid. Rice protein would be too grainy and is not recommended. Any milk can substitute the almond-coconut milk.
