You already know how obsessed I am with turning delicious breakfast foods into delicious AND healthy breakfast foods - so here we are again with another chia pudding recipe for y'all.
Although chia pudding is typically filled with tons of healthy fats (thanks to the Omega 3's found in chia seeds) which are excellent for long-duration energy storage & promote heart and brain health, there isn't quite enough protein in there to help preserve muscle mass, promote muscle growth or help with overall satiety.
That's why, this Vanilla Protein Chia Pudding recipe is PERFECT for anyone who loves chia pudding, but wants a little extra protein to start their morning off right - because #goals.
I N G R E D I E N T S:
1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Cashew or Almond Milk
