Blueberry Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding

Why this recipe?

Keeps You Full: Chia seeds, Greek yogurt, peanut butter and protein powder make this breakfast high in protein which keeps you fuller longer. 

Keeps You Regular: Between the fiber in chia seeds and probiotics in Greek yogurt, this recipe helps promote healthy and efficient digestion. In other words, if you're looking to keep your poops regular and your body functioning at its best, this recipe is for you. 

Keeps You On Schedule: This recipe is perfect for meal prep and busy mornings. It takes 5 minutes to make and keeps in the fridge all week long. I like to dish out this breakfast pudding into individual containers. So, all I have to do is grab one when I'm running out the door in the morning.

Meal Prep Storage

I use these deli containers (to the right) for all my food storage. They are durable, stackable, BPA-free and very affordable. They're also microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe. There are several sizes to choose from and regardless of size they all have the same tops. So, you will never have to spend your precious time and patience rummaging through your tupperware drawer trying to find a matching lid. 

 

Protein Powder

This recipe uses protein powder. Lately, I've been using this bone broth collagen protein powder by Ancient Nutrition. It has a laundry list of benefits but I can personally attest to the fact that it does great things for digestion! If you're looking for a protein and/or collagen supplement, I highly recommend giving this one a try.

Prep time:

Rest time:

Serves: 4

Make-Ahead Blueberry Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 scoops chocolate protein powder*
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk (or preferred type of milk)
  • 1-2 cups blueberries

Instructions:
  1. Warm Peanut Butter: Microwave the peanut butter for 30-45 seconds to make it easier to combine with the other ingredients.
  2. Combine: In a medium to large mixing bowl, whisk all the ingredients except for the blueberries until they're well combined. The mixture should be a thin soup-like consistency.
  3. Refrigerate: Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours but preferrably overnight. This is when the mixture thickens and becomes a pudding-like consistency.
  4. Enjoy: Stir the pudding. Top each serving with 1/4-1/2 cup of blueberries and enjoy!

*I recommend using this Collagen Protein Powder by Ancient Nutrition but any chocolate protein powder will work!
