Chocolate Protein Chia Seed Pudding


Chia seed pudding is a gift to humanity. I’ll admit- the first time I tried it I wasn’t into it. I think it’s because my expectations were off kilter. I expected “puddin’ cups” when I should have been expecting tapioca pudding. Have you ever had tapioca pudding? My grandfather LOVED it so it evokes a really sweet memory for me. Chia seed pudding is very similar to tapioca, but a little more crunch.


Chia seeds are not only delicious, they are extremely nutrient dense! They are a powerhouse in a tiny package- like Smurfs. Chia seeds boast 20% protein content, more fiber than flax seeds, high omega-3 fatty acids, as well as high quantities of calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium. You can ready more about their heart healthy benefits in this study I referenced here.


This chia seed pudding makes a great breakfast on the go, dessert, snack… the list goes on! Make these head of time and have breakfast READY when you wake up. Perfect for those of us who just can’t think first thing in the morning. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
