Chocolate Cherry Chia Pudding
Yield 2 Servings
Chia seeds are one of my favourite foods for hormones.
High in protein, omega 3's, magnesium, calcium, and fibre - they are truly a good addition for anyone! Chia pudding is a great breakfast, or snack - as long as you like the consistency of tapioca pudding. If you don't - then this may not be for you. 🙂
1/4 cup Chia Seeds
1 cup Plain Coconut Milk (unsweetened, from the carton)
1/4 cup Chocolate Protein Powder
3/4 cup Cherries (pitted)
1 tbsp Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- In a large bowl, combine the chia seeds with the coconut milk and the protein powder. Whisk well, making sure all the seeds are incorporated. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or overnight to thicken.
- Top the chia pudding with the cherries and the coconut. Serve and enjoy!
Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to five days.
No Protein Powder
Use raw cacao powder instead of protein powder, using half the amount.
