Are Chia seeds healthy?

I’m a recent enthusiast of Chia seeds and love them in my homemade strawberry chia jam and as an addition to my homemade granola.

Chia seeds are a superfood high in fiber and rich in omega 3s, antioxidants and minerals. 

Two tablespoons of chia seeds contains 4.6 grams of protein.

They keep you full for hours and they are gluten-free.

Can you mix protein powder with Greek yogurt?

Yes. For this simple recipe I used my favorite dark chocolate protein powder from Tera’s Whey

It offers 20 grams of protein per serving and adds the right amount of flavoring to this Greek yogurt protein pudding recipe.

If those who are not chocolate lovers, they also offer a vanilla protein powder as well as unsweetened for those with sensitive taste buds.

Left to soak in liquid chia seeds act as a pectin and thicken after several hours.

Chia seeds are a great way to create a tasty pudding that will satisfy any sweet tooth.

They are easy to make with simple ingredients and are perfect as a workout snack or healthy dessert.

Even my kids had no idea they were eating something that was good for them. 

Ingredients

Non-fat Greek yogurt. For this recipe I picked up several individual servings of 100-calorie Greek yogurt.

I chose raspberry because I love the flavors of chocolate and raspberries together.

And because I chose a flavored yogurt there was no need for any added sugar. It was perfectly sweetened.

Chia seeds. Look in the health foods section, the baking aisle, near the rice and quinoa or by the nuts in your local grocery store.

Milk. Your favorite dairy or almond milk works for this recipe.

Protein Powder. I prefer a dark chocolate protein powder for deep chocolate flavor. 

Your toppings of choice. Berries, banana slices, chocolate chips, nuts. The possibilities are endless.

Variations

The possibilities are endless when making Chia seed pudding. 

As long as you follow the simple ratio of 1/4 cup of Chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid you’re in good shape.

Use plain Greek yogurt instead of flavored. 

Or chose a different flavor.

Create your own pudding by using unsweetened almond milk instead of milk. 

Switch up your sweeteners.

Use honey, maple syrup or agave. 

If you prefer to skip the protein powder, substitute with the same amount of cocoa powder.

Be creative with your topping ideas.

Fresh berries are my personal favorite because they add the best kind of sweet flavor.

Granola, nuts and fresh pineapple. kiwi and mango are also fun flavorful fruits to use.

Enjoy this raspberry chocolate Chia pudding and serve it as a healthy snack, for breakfast or dessert.
