Ingredients

For Chocolate Protein Chia Pudding:
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla protein powder
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 6 Tablespoons chia seeds

Instructions

To make Chocolate Protein Chia Pudding:
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients EXCEPT the chia seeds.
  2. Gradually add in chia seeds, stirring after each addition. This helps to prevent clumping of seeds.
  3. After chia seeds are mixed in well, cover and place in refrigerator overnight. After a couple hours, stir pudding to help prevent chia seeds from clumping together (they like to form clumps in your pudding).
  4. In the morning, remove from refrigerator and find a creamy chocolate chia pudding to eat.

Notes

  • The cocoa powder and protein powder will seem unable to mix in, but keep on whisking and it will eventually mix together (about 4 to 5 minutes by hand) with the other ingredients.
  • You can use chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla.
