Chia Protein Pudding Recipe!

Wednesday, 29 March 2017

One morning at training, my coach called me over to try something he had made for breakfast. It was a simple recipe but packed full of goodness. He's super-strict with his nutrition, so I'm happy to try anything he recommends. It was a delicious protein pudding that tasted like it shouldn't be healthy, yet it totally is. I found the recipe he had posted and it has since become a staple for me.

This couldn't be easier to put together and it's something that you can make the night before in about five minutes. Pop it into a to-go container and you can eat a filing breakfast anywhere/anytime that suits you. I've taken this with me to training then ate it afterwards, or just left it in the fridge for an afternoon snack.

It seems like a lot of ingredients, but once you buy some in bulk you do get a lot of serves out of it.

Serves 1

1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 teaspoons flaxseeds 
2 teaspoons sliced almonds
1 serve protein powder (any flavor you like)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup frozen berries 

Into a container or bowl, add the chia seeds, flax seeds, almonds, and protein power. 

Pour the coconut milk and vanilla on top and mix well.

Top with frozen berries of your choice (I would recommend raspberries, so good!)

Cover and place in the fridge to set for a few hours or over-night.

And it's ready to go! 

This couldn't be easier to put together and I have felt better since starting to eat it as part of my routine. It would be the perfect way to start a good day and get you eating right!

Let me know what you think :)
