Almond and Vanilla Protein Chia Pudding
healthy protein pots...
Who doesn't love pudding?! I know I do but the usual options aren't often the healthiest choices and leave you craving more. This recipe, however, is super easy and tasty. It uses just 7 basic ingredients to create a fresh and filling protein pot. It contains nutrient dense chia seeds, high quality fats from coconut cream and almond butter as well as a healthy dose of protein that will help boost satiety. Whilst this makes a great pudding option, it would also be a fantastic grab and go breakfast option with endless flavour options. This recipe is from episode 4 of my Day of Eating video series.
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Soak Time: 5+ Hours
60g Protein Powder
60g Chia Seeds
120ml Coconut Cream
360ml Water / Nut Milk
40g almond butter
5-10 drops of liquid stevia or 2-4 tsp honey
2 tsp vanilla paste
Start by combining the coconut cream with the water or nut milk and briefly stirring together.
Then just throw everything into a mixing bowl and whisk together. You can blend the ingredients if you prefer a smoother texture.
Pour the mixture into serving glasses or pots, cover with plastic wrap and leave to set in the fridge for 5+ hours.
When ready to consume, remove from the refrigerator and top with whatever feels good. I went for coconut flakes, 100% dark chocolate pieces and a drizzle of coconut and almond butter. Enjoy!
This mixture will keep in a sealed container for up to 48 hours in the refrigerator if making multiple servings was needed.
