1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 nectarine or peach
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 scoop plant-based vanilla protein powder (I use Perfect Fit)
Optional: your favorite toppings! I like strawberries, nectarine, shredded coconut, and Paleo Granola
Yields 2 large servings or 4 snack-sized servings.
For the smoother pudding:
Blend all ingredients (including chia seeds) in a high-powered blender for a couple minutes until smooth (no full seeds remain). Pour into a container with a lid and refrigerate. Mix after 30 minutes. Store in refrigerator.
For the original chia pudding:
Pour chia seeds into a container. Blend almond milk, protein, vanilla, and nectarine. Pour mixture over chia seeds and stir well with a spoon. Cover with a lid and refrigerate for several hours or overnight (stirring again after 30 minutes).
