Tart Cherry Chia Pudding

Friday, March 17, 2023

This is a really easy, snack that packs a decent amount of protein. It also works well for breakfast if that's more your style. 

Just remember to plan ahead, because chia pudding is best if it sits in the fridge overnight. I usually make 3-4 at dinner time, so I can stir it a few times. This way I'm set for a few days.

This recipe is for 1 serving:

  • 1.5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • ​1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • ​2 tbsp chopped tart cherries
  • ​1 scoop protein powder

Combine the chia seeds and coconut milk (or whichever type of milk you prefer) in a serving dish and whisk well. Refrigerate and whisk again a couple more times if you remember. I try to do it every 15 minutes while I'm making dinner. This isn't absolutely necessary, but definitely makes a thicker pudding.

Refrigerate overnight.

When ready to serve, stir in pure maple syrup and a scoop of your favorite protein powder (I use Juice Plus+ Complete or Vital Proteins). Top with cherries and serve immediately.
