Blended Green Chia Pudding

Healthy Blended Green Chia Pudding

I used to love chia pudding…until I didn’t. Maybe I overate it at one point? The texture started to deter me.Until I blended it! The consistency suddenly became something I adored. It’s rarely eaten on its own however; I love topping it with granola, crumpling up Empower Bars, or incorporating a sweet treat from my cookbook!

Blended Green Chia Pudding

Makes 3-4 servings

Grain-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free, Soy-free, Nut-free, Vegan optional

  • 3 cups almond milk (or dairy-free milk of choice)

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds

  • 2 handfuls fresh or frozen greens

  • 1/4 cup frozen berries (optional)

  • 2-3 cups frozen nut milk cubs (dairy-free milk frozen in ice cube tray)

  • 2 tablespoons protein powder of choice (I like a vanilla plant-based protein powder)

  • 1 tablespoon collagen peptides (optional)

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (if not using a vanilla protein powder)

*The possibilities are endless in terms of what you want to incorporate!

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the almond milk or dairy-free milk of choice with the chia seeds. Stir vigorously with a fork until the chia seeds are covered. Continue to stir occasionally for at least 5 minutes to prevent the chia seeds from clumping. Allow to soak overnight in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or ideally overnight.

In a high-speed blender, add the chia pudding with the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth and thick, using the tamper to get everything going. Transfer to small bowls or mason jars and add toppings of choice!

Storage: You can refrigerate the chia pudding in an airtight container up to 3 days.

Preparation tip: Prepare the chia pudding up to 3 days in advance.
