- 1 scoop (25 grams) vanilla protein powder
- 1 ¼-½ cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk plus more as needed
- 4 Tablespoons chia seeds
- ½ Tablespoon maple syrup honey or sweetener of choice
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract optional
- Granola for topping, optional
- ½ cup Greek yogurt (or non-dairy yogurt) for topping, optional
- Toppings: fresh berries granola and nut butter.
In a bowl or mason jar, whisk together almond milk and protein powder until protein powder has dissolved. If you’re using a mason jar, you can put the lid on and shake the mixture to combine.
Add chia seeds, maple syrup and vanilla. Stir or shake mixture until well combined. Once the chia pudding mixture is well combined, let it sit for 5 minutes, give it another stir/shake to break up any clumps of chia seeds.
Cover and put the mixture in the fridge to “set" for 1-2 hours or overnight. The chia pudding should be nice and thick, not liquidy.
When ready to serve, portion chia pudding into two glasses with layers of granola, if desired. Top with ¼ cup Greek yogurt each, fresh berries, additional granola and nut butter or toppings of choice.
