  • Put chocolate in a bowl and set aside. Heat milk (or milk substitute) and maple syrup in a saucepan on low heat. Pour over chocolate. Mix until blended into chocolate milk.
  • Place chia seeds in a large jar with a tight-fitting lid, or four small ones about 1/2 cup (125 mL) each in size. Pour in chocolate milk, mix, and close jar(s). Refrigerate for at least 8 hours, or up to 24 hours, stirring after 1 hour to make sure mix is even. The longer the pudding sets, the thicker it will be.
  • Serve topped with bananas and chocolate shavings.
