Chia Protein Pudding
Prep time
Total time
Makes about 3 cups of pudding (4 servings).
Serves: 4
  1. Put chia seeds in a bowl or food storage container (at least 1 quart in capacity).
  2. If using soaked raw cashews, drain and rinse them. Then put in blender. Otherwise put cashew or almond butter into the blender.
  3. Add filtered water so it reaches the 24oz mark. (This will make 3 cups of unsweetened nut milk.)
  4. Blend until combined.
  5. Add in vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and whey powder. Blend until combined.
  6. Pour mixture over chia seeds, and stir.
  7. Let pudding sit at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. If you can, stir every 10 minutes (this helps avoid clumps of chia seeds).
  8. Refrigerate and enjoy!
A note about substitutions: You can substitute vanilla casein protein powder for the whey, but you may need a little more water. I would not use vegan protein powders in this recipe because they would give a chalky consistency to the pudding. If you want to make the recipe nut-free, you can use 2 tablespoons coconut butter to make the nut milk.
