Instructions on how to make overnight protein chia seed puddings.
In a bowl or mason jar, mix together chia seeds, milk, maple syrup and protein. If you’re using a mason jar, you can put the lid on and shake the mixture to combine everything.
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 overnight or couple of hours if in a hurry.
When ready to serve, divide the mixture between two bowls, top the pudding with berries and toppings. 🤗
Chia seeds can absorb 9 times their weight in liquid, but for making chia pudding I like to stick with a 1:6 ratio. So I do 3 Tablespoons of chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid for a single serving and 6 Tablespoons (or about 1/3 cup) of chia seeds to 2 cups of liquid for a double batch.
The liquid is up to you and will vary based on preference and dietary restrictions. I love using plant-based milks like almond, cashew and coconut milk. They give the chia pudding a creamy consistency that’s really nice. It’s a really filling breakfast, snack or dessert out of the chia pudding. It’s also a great option for people who follow the paleo or keto diet.
If you want the pudding to have a bit of sweetness you can add sweet spices like cinnamon and cardamom, vanilla extract and your sweetener of choice. I’m a big fan of maple syrup and honey. 😋
