Recipe: Vegan Vanilla Protein Chia Pudding

Brooke Slade

Chia pudding is one of my go-to, guilt-free sweet snacks...

For me, its a great alternative to tapioca or rice pudding and when made with dairy-free ingredients, chia pudding (IMO) is still as satisfying as the dairy options.

I love chia pudding as much as I love packing as many nutrients as possible into any single dish, so, its only natural that I found a way to make the already pretty nutritious pudding into a protein-powerhouse of a treat. In this recipe alone, you're getting 25g of protein and 17g of fiber! Happy eating.


Vegan Vanilla Protein Chia Pudding

Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons organic chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop organic vegan vanilla protein podwer (I use Nutiva vanilla vegan protein powder)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate seeds (I buy mine separated from the fruit)
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Add all dry ingredients, except chia seeds, to a medium sized mixing bowl. Whisk together to blend evenly. 
  2. Add almond milk and vanilla extract to dry ingredients. Whisk together, briskly, until all ingredients are blended into a smoothie-like texture (no lumps or bumps!).
  3. Fetch your chia seeds. While whisking, slowly add chia seeds to bowl. Whisk until chia seeds are completely covered by the almond milk mixture.
  4. Choose your serving dish. You can make 2 smaller, snack portions by using two 1 cup ramekins or you can make one larger portion using a mason jar. (I chose a mason jar).
  5. Pour chia pudding mixture into dish. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours ( I like to set overnight).
  6. Remove from refrigerator. You can finally use those pomegrante seeds now! Sprinkle seeds and any other fruit or nut garnish you'd like, on top.

Enjoy!

Serves 1-2 depending on how generous you're feeling ;)
