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 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.
