Chia Protein Puddings

So, well... yum. 

That is all I can muster up to say because I am in a chia-type nirvana state, that I am unwilling to come out of. 

OK. I  am with you (wipes drool from mouth).

I love flavour pairings and this once is a doozy...Some may say it's too much, but I say yeehaa to all of the flavours! 

So without further ado, here we have this fibrous and omega-3 packed, immune-boosting ginger-spiked, tummy tightening protein punch of a snack. 

You Need: 

CHIA PUDDING

  • 1/4 cup chia
  • 2 1/4  cups of coconut milk, or water/almond milk for a lighter version 
  • 1.5 scoops vanilla whey protein 

STRAWBERRY ORANGE SALSA 

  • 2 oranges, peeled and chopped
  • 1 punnet strawberries, quartered
  • 1/2 cup almonds, chopped roughly

SYRUP

  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cm fresh ginger, grated 

METHOD

Soak the chia seeds in liquid of choice (water, milk) over night, or at least a few hours, until gelled. 

Grate ginger and mix into maple- allow to infuse for a few hours. 

Stir the chia seeds to break up, and separate into 4 small cups or jars. 

Mix chopped strawberries, oranges and almonds and top the chia cups. 

Drizzle maple ginger syrup on top to serve!
