We’re still in summer mode and what’s better than turning a summer classic into a tasty, healthy + high-protein snack?
This Banana Cream Pie protein chia pudding recipe is perfect because it’s inspired by the dessert and tastes so much like the original, with a light coconut flavour from the mix of coconut milks.
I mentioned it’s also good for you too right?
WHY CHIA PUDDING IS SO GOOD FOR YOU
For one, chia seeds contain tons of fibre and healthy fats - making it great for digestion while keeping you full and satisfied.
Plus, the addition of Garden of Life’s Whey protein powder really gives it both a great consistency and texture (which adds to the overall summery feel and taste!) AND a boost of muscle-building nutrients that are perfect for fuelling up or for recovery.
In my opinion, Garden of Life has one of the best Vanilla protein powders - and it really shows out in this pudding. While plant-based protein powder is also an option here, for me personally, I didn’t like the consistency as much as with whey protein powder, because it thickened the pudding up too much. So, while it's fine to use if you prefer, I definitely recommend using Garden of Life's whey protein in Vanilla, which you can check out here.
We have just a few weeks left in summer - so be sure to give this a try before it ends, or even afterward to take you back to feeling like you’re soaking up the sunshine no matter what season you’re in!
