The Best Protein Chia Pudding

Make the best protein chia pudding with drink wholesome.

I know that I am late to the chia seed bandwagon, but this recipe is too good to keep to myself. With minimal effort, plant milk, protein powder, and a handful of chia seeds, you can make an incredible, healthy snack.

Chia seeds are a superfood for a reason. Not only are they rich in fiber, antioxidants, minerals, and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, but they are also easy to prepare. You can make chia seed pudding, for example, by simply letting the seeds sit in liquid for a few hours. Did you know that chia seeds can absorb up to 10 times their weight? 

Chia seeds used to be a niche ingredient that you could only find at health food stores, but now you can find them everywhere. Head on over to your local grocery store and get yourself some. This chia seed pudding recipe is calling your name.

If you’re looking to make an even simpler version, combine 2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1/2 cup plant milk and 1/4 cup protein powder and then leave in the fridge for 3+ hours.

Why drink wholesome?

This recipe was made with drink wholesome chocolate protein powder. It is perfect for adding to recipes. Most protein powders are not because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein. 

Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how much chalky pudding are you willing to make? 

Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is made with natural sweeteners. Our products that are lightly sweetened, are made with either maple sugar or monk fruit. Maple sugar has a lower glycemic index than refined sugar, and thus a smaller impact on blood sugar levels.  Maple sugar, unlike refined sugar, is packed with antioxidants and minerals that combat inflammation, the silent killer in cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic conditions.

Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder. 

We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit or maple sugar sweetness for yourself.

Now without further ado, here is the best protein powder chia pudding recipe.

Ingredients: 

– 1 cup strawberries 

– 1 banana 

– 2 tbsp oats

– 1 tbsp maple syrup

Is this chia pudding vegan?

If you are on a plant-based diet, do not despair. Simply use our vegan vanilla, vegan chocolate or vegan unflavored protein powder. The main source of protein in these products is California almonds! Make sure you also use a plant-based milk like almond, flax or oat milk.

What are some of the health benefits of protein chia pudding?

Packed with nutrients such as fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants, chia pudding with drink wholesome protein powder can support digestive health, promote satiety, and aid in weight management. Additionally, it has a low glycemic index, which helps stabilize blood sugar levels, unlike many sugary breakfast cereals.

Can you make this high protein chia pudding recipe with other flavors of protein powder?

Our recipe uses vanilla to complement the flavors of the strawberry. I have also used our chocolate, matcha and unflavored protein powder with great results! We’d recommend giving some other flavors a whirl.
