Little Chickpea Food Wednesday: Snack Time- Banana Pudding

Guess who is getting their very first hair cut today?

That’s right!

I am happy to announce that she will no longer look like a homeless kid whose been running the streets begging for someone to buy her a donut.

Nor will she be confused with the child from the jungle book who hangs out with wild animals and walks barefoot in the dirt.

She will finally be able to see where she is going, and stop running into walls, tables, and chairs.

And more importantly I, her mother, will have to stop holding onto the fact that she’s no longer a baby and big headbands and bows can’t hide her baby rats nest hair forever…

Oddly enough I am actually excited for her newly styled hair…However, I am dreading the process.

Let’s just say one press of the wrong button and she will go all Diva on you screaming obscenities such as, ” You’re bein’ naughty, Go on timeout!” All the while pointing her cute little finger at you with a smirk on her face.

100% sass I tell ya…

Which is why in honor of Little Chickpea Food Wednesday:

I’ve decided to share a sweet treat/snack idea that can come in handy when your child needs some encouragement…

Or bribery…However you want to put it.

Banana Pudding

Makes 2 cups


1 avocado-cold (set in fridge an hour or so before)

1 1/2 bananas-cold (set in fridge an hour or so before)

4 TB plain greek yogurt or 4 TB coconut fat from can

2 TB liquid sweetener of choice

1-2 TB non dairy milk

1 tsp vanilla


1. Blend everything in a blender until creamy.ย 

If you hear on the news of a young mom who was sent to timeout for eternity well then you can probably assume things didn’t go as planned.

And if that happens, you can also assume that the little child running down the street in nothing but a diaper, fake plastic heels, and a huge knot in the back of their hair is none other than…
