Foodie Friday: Blueberry Vanilla Chia Pudding


Blueberry Vanilla Chia Seed Protein Pudding with Skoop B Strong + Pocketfuel Vanilla Haze {Gluten Free}

Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Cassandra from Powered by BLING to create awesome healthy recipes each week!  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

This week our theme is “overcoming fears” or making something that we’ve been scared too. The recipe I am featuring isn’t something I was scared to make necessarily, as it is quite easy, but more that I wasn’t sure I would enjoy the taste so I’ve never made it….until now!

I have heard a lot about chia pudding and knew it was quick to make but since I have the same boring thing for breakfast every morning (Udi’s GF toast with almond butter), I never made it.  Plus I thought it required sitting overnight which I always struggle with, I’m bad at planning ahead!

Anywhoo….come to discover, you just need to let it sit for about 4 hours so that is what I did, because naturally I forgot to make this the night before.  I really have a serious case of mommy brain. Thankfully, it turned out quite delicious and didn’t require too much effort!

Chia Seed Protein Pudding with Skoop B Strong and Pocketfuel Vanilla Haze {Gluten Free} via @FitFoodieMama

To make the pudding you take a mason jar, add non-dairy milk, Skoop B-Strong for added protein and white chia seeds (the black ones look funny when they get stuck in your teeth), do a little shaky shake and let it sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

Once nice and pudding-like, I took it out and topped it with Pocketfuel Vanilla Haze (vanilla hazelnut butter), mashed blueberries and some chopped pecans and viola…you have yourself one YUMMY chia protein pudding for breakfast!

I really need to try this! I have seen these pudding recipes before and it does look easy. I only have the black seeds so I will make sure I brush my teeth afterwards :)

I'm not going to lie, chia pudding scares me a bit. And I get so much fiber as it is... but this looks so damn good that I'd be willing to risk it :D

    I think it just needs the right ratio of liquid to chia seeds and it should turn out okay :)

Yum! Love chia puddings!! They are so filling, packed with nutrition, and delicious! I enjoy them for breakfast, snack, or dessert! Funny I almost posted one today too but opted for my Mango Chicken Coconut Wraps as I mentioned them with my coleslaw last week.

Hi Annmarie, You know, I've never tried making chia pudding at home either. But it sounds quite easy and very similar process to my beloved overnight oats. Thanks for sharing! Happy Friday! :)
