Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

One Thought: Can’t Stop Eating This.

This was my first time making a chia seed pudding, and, now, I’m addicted. Paleo. Dairy-free. Gluten-free. I don’t care what diet or non-diet you’re on; chia pudding is a must try for everyone! And it’s unbelievably easy. You can make a big batch, like I did, and have it all week long. It’s my new weekday, Lazy Girl’s power breakfast!

This version blends high-quality collagen powder with honey and peanut (or any nut) butter and unsweetened almond milk. It’s topped with bananas and strawberries, but you can add whatever toppings you dream up.

The chocolate collagen powder adds an amazing, rich and chocolately flavor plus helps promote healthy hair, skin and nails and also improves gut health.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Chia seed puddings are nutritional powerhouses, and when combined with nuts and cocoa powder, you have a snack full of antioxidants and healthy fats that will keep you feeling full for hours thanks to the fiber and protein. The high soluble fiber content of chia seeds and the insoluble fiber from the peanuts provide cholesterol lowering properties and help control blood sugar levels. This chia pudding is a great snack for anyone, particularly diabetics, and the sugar content can be decreased by simply leaving out the honey.

However, If you cannot tolerate snacks and/or meals with a high fat content, then you may want to avoid eating chia puddings as it may cause gastrointestinal distress.

I’m thrilled to welcome you to Further Food.
I started Further Food because I believe in the power of food - to nourish, to prevent disease. But... what happens when we get sick with a chronic illness? Or when someone we love gets diagnosed? How can food and diet changes help the healing process? Help better manage symptoms - naturally?
These were the questions I was struggling with when I started Further Food.
Last year, my father was diagnosed with diabetes II. We were shocked because my mother cooks very healthfully. But my dad sneaks in a lot of processed, unhealthy foods while he was on the road, which is much of the time.  Sound familiar?
Around the same time, one of my best friends was struggling with IBS and another was going through a bad Ulcerative Colitis flare. I wanted to help, but didn't know how. So I turned to the internet to do research. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and often depressing.  I got sucked into these forums, but couldn't easily find the information I was looking for. And that's when I thought  - there must be a better way to help people discover how to use food to combat various aliments...in an easy-to-use, beautiful, and fun way!
And that's how Further Food was born. In my research, I have helped my dad change his diet. He is now 15 lbs lighter, has cut back on processed foods, and decreased his total daily carbs. The journey isn't over, but he's doing so much better! #winningdad. I've showed him Tiffany's inspiring story of how she reversed her diabetes and shared her "Phase I" meal plan with him.  My friend has changed her diet to dramatically to reduce her IBS symptoms, and I have recently introduced her to the FODMAP diet - one that I discovered from the contributors on Further Food!  With my urging, my other friend with Ulcerative Colitis, tried going gluten-free and found that his 'pain-level' dramatically reduced within a week of making the dietary changes!
These powerful experiences, along with the stories I hear daily from Further Food's Health Heroes, inspire me to keep going further.  I am so deeply honored to be spear-heading this important work of using crowd-sourced data to find food-based solutions for a variety of health conditions. I believe in the wisdom of your stories, the strength of our community, and in the power of celebrating food as we get healthy together.
Help us spread the word about what we're doing, because we're just getting started!
 
Bio: I have dedicated my career to building and funding mission driven companies, specifically in the health and wellness space. Further Food is the culmination of my experiences, and reflects my belief that companies should do well and do good. I am also a certified yoga teacher, and love to surf, run, tango, travel and cook. My BA is from Brown University and my MPP from Harvard University.

    I tried something similar to this- I left out the chocolate (only because I can’t have something super sweet first waking up) and for the strawberries I mashed them together to form jelly like consistency. I added that and bananas to the top of chia mixture and it was so good! I wasn’t a huge fan of chia texture, but with all the other add-ins, it was delicious! I’ll save the chocolate addition for the afternoon! It was very filling!

    This is probably my favorite chia pudding at the moment! It’s just the right amount of sweet, and the fruit adds great texture to the pudding. I recommend letting it set up over night for a thicker consistency!

      I tried it this weekend and although I thought I wasn’t the chia type, I really liked it! I also had no peanut butter nor almond milk so just used water and a wee bit of maple syrup – really satisfying.
