A good ratio for the chia pudding is to have about ¼ cup of chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid. If the chia pudding is to thick in the morning, add a bit more coconut milk or almond milk to thin it out.
To make the strawberry nicecream simply blend frozen strawberries with frozen banana’s for a thick sorbet like consistency. If your having a hard time getting the fruit to blend you can add a bit of milk to help move it around in the blender but try to avoid adding any liquid otherwise it will come out like a smoothie and be to runny to add to your breakfast jars.
To make the banana split jars simple layer the chia pudding with chocolate sauce, granola and strawberry nicecream, repeat layers and top with your favorite banana split toppings like fresh banana’s, fresh strawberries more chocolate sauce and even whipped cream if your really indulging.
