ABOUT THE AUTHOR
This blueberry chia seed pudding recipe is made with coconut kefir, Manuka honey, and vegan protein powder; an easy (and yummy) recipe with protein, fiber, probiotics, and healthy fats.
I started looking into chia seed pudding as a way to get my sweet fix without feeding inflammation or adding more misery to the gut issues I was already having when I was first diagnosed with Graves’ Disease.
These tiny seeds packed a big nutrient punch. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds have nearly 5 grams of protein, 9 grams of healthy omega-3 fats, and 10 grams of fiber.
If you’re looking for an easy recipe that tastes delicious for breakfast, a snack or dessert, this is it.
HOW TO MAKE IT
What You’ll Need
1/4 cup coconut milk, unsweetened
1/4 cup coconut kefir
½ medium lemon, zest
2 tsp. Manuka honey
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
3 tbsp. chia seeds
½ scoop of vegan protein powder
½ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
How to Prepare It
Add all ingredients, except blueberries to a mason jar or any container with a tight lid (use glass ) in the order listed above – liquids first.
Whisk well until combined. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
When ready to eat, stir again and top with blueberries.
The thickness and sweetness can be adjusted to taste. Enjoy!
