Blueberry Chocolate Chia Seed Protein Pudding

Ingredients

    Chocolate Pudding
  • 1/2 c almond milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp. all natural sugar free maple syrup
  • 1 scoop protein powder (PEScience Milk Chocolate 30% off code PBCHOCO)
    Blueberry Pudding
  • 1/4 c blueberries
  • 2 tbsp. all natural sugar free maple syrup
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/4 c plus 2 tbsp. almond milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds

Instructions

  1. To make the chocolate pudding layer, place all chocolate pudding ingredients (except protein powder) into a high speed blender until smooth. You may need to stop and scrape the sides a few times. (Mine was almost smooth, a few chia seeds got away from me)
  2. Add your protein powder and continue blending until completely incorporated.
  3. Put the chocolate pudding in a jar, cover and place in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours or overnight.
  4. To make your blueberry pudding layer, place the blueberries, syrup and lemon juice in a small frying pan and turn on medium-low heat.
  5. Once bubbles start to form, use a spatula to smash the berries and release juices.
  6. Simmer for 2-3 minutes and then remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
  7. Add your blueberry mixture and almond milk into a blender and pulse until combined then pour it into a jar.
  8. Stir in your chia seeds, cover and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours or overnight.
  9. To assemble your pudding, scoop a spoonful of chocolate pudding into a cup and then add a spoonful of blueberry pudding on top of it. Top with more berries if desired.
