If you haven’t tried Chia pudding then get ready to be a convert! This Low-Carb 15 Minute Chocolate Chia Protein Pudding is my new favorite breakfast. There is no cooking, just mixing a few ingredients together, tossing it in the fridge for 10 minutes, then voila you have an awesome breakfast.
But I Don’t Have 15 Minutes To Spare In The Morning?
Chocolate Chia Protein Pudding can be mixed up the night before so it is ready to go first thing in the morning. It makes the ideal breakfast for those mornings where you have a million things to do like getting kids out the door and getting ready for work. This is the perfect grab and go low-carb breakfast.
In addition, if you like breakfast cereal, then this is a great alternative.
Chia Seeds Are A Superfood
What I love about chia seeds is that they are a great source of healthy omega 3’s which are often lacking in our diet. The fiber content is also good. The chia seeds in this recipe provide 18g of fiber.
Low-Carb 15 Minute Chocolate Chia Protein Pudding
3 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2-1 tbsp erythritol or low-carb sweetener (such as Now Foods or Swerve)
1 scoop (32g) chocolate low-carb protein powder (Isopure Low-Carb Dutch Chocolate)
A few raspberries to serve
If not adding protein powder (or using plain protein powder) you might need to add 5-6 drops of stevia glycerite for sweetness.
Isopure Low-Carb Dutch Chocolate has 25g of protein in 1 scoop, as used in this recipe.
Place all the ingredients (except raspberries) in a small bowl or jar and mix well.
Leave in the fridge for at least 10 minutes (or overnight).
Top with the raspberries and enjoy.
