    Breakfast Pudding

    Shop Now
    So I've been experimenting with chia as a pudding base lately. This morning's combination is rather tasty.

    1/4 cup chia seed
    1/4 cup hemp protein
    1/4 cup creamy almond butter

    combine chia with 1c water, stir, allow to rest 15-20 mins. Melt almond butter. Combine hemp with jello-y chia pudding, fold in liquidy almond butter. It takes a bit of work to get it well combined, but worth it. If necesary, add a little liquid stevia vanilla cream to taste.

    700 cals, 52g fat, 44g carb (but only 12 net carbs), 42g protein.

    Chalked full of fiber, protein, and healthy fats. Perfect storm!
    I should call this dish that. It's kind of stormy looking.

    Voila! PERFECT STORM BREAKFAST PUDDING
    By me.

    I've had hemp protein powder once before, and it tasted AWFUL. Maybe I could do some protein powder instead? I don't remember how hemp powder "acted" so I don't know for sure how the switch would be.

    Here's a recipe for another chia seed "pudding" (the author compares it to Tapioca pudding which I've always loved!) and it's pretty similar to yours (chia seeds, plus liquid, plus flavoring). I find jay robs stevia sweetened protein powder to be excessively sweet/overpowering, so maybe I'll replace some of the cocoa powder in this recipe with the chocolate protein powder to give me some sweetness and protein.

    I do like, though, that your recipe uses water (because of the fillers in almond milk unless it's homemade) and because using a nut butter could give it a taste bonus.

    Anyway, either recipe/combo of either one, sounds like something good to make a large batch of and eat for a couple quick meals for the week!

    The hemp protein I have is pretty tasteless when mixed with other stuff. I have the Bobs Red Mill stuff. I tried Jay Robb protein powder once and it was VILE. Never again. I prefer to get my protein from more natural sources (plant & critter)

    P.S. You forgot to include that tapioca recipe. I love tapioca! I made some yesterday from scratch, but it wasn't what I was expecting. Would love to see how you do a "protein tap"

    Oh, sorry, here's the link

    It's not a tapioca recipe--it's a chia one, like yours, I'm just saying she compares it to tapioca pudding since it has little globules in it. Maria's Nutritious and Delicious Journal: Chocolate "Tapioca" Pudding and WHY CHIA seeds

    Also, how do you not see whey protein powder as a "natural source?" Personally, I'd think getting protein from milk makes more sense than plan protein (which doesn't have a complete amino acid profile). But hey, different strokes for different folks (for instance, I think whey protein's all right, but I had the bob's red mill hemp stuff and I thought it was rank, lol. So maybe our taste buds are swapped

    I'm just weird. I think about all the other stuff that usually is in the can with the whey, and it just seems unnatural to me. Blueprinting encourages finding nutrition as close to its original source as possible, so I sort of like hemp protein for that reason-- single ingredient item.
