Banana-Coconut Breakfast Pudding

Two of my all-time favorite breakfasts are oat bran and smoothies. One would think that these two morning meals are on opposite ends of the spectrum—one fruity and icy, the other warm and starchy—but thanks to a little inspiration from Katie, I’ve managed to fuse them into a single breakfast—Banana-Coconut Breakfast Pudding.

I first posted this recipe about three years ago, but since then I’ve made several improvements to the recipe, so I thought it was time for an update. Plus, with this heat wave sweeping the country, I thought you all might appreciate a cool and refreshing breakfast treat 🙂

Banana-Coconut Breakfast Pudding


(inspired by Katie’s Banana Bread in a Bowl)
