Protein Chia Pudding



  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Fresh berries or other desired toppings


  1. In a mason jar or airtight container, combine chia seeds, almond milk, protein powder, and vanilla extract. Shake well to combine, ensuring there are no clumps of seeds at the bottom.
  2. Seal the container with a lid and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results. This will allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and thicken the pudding.
  3. After refrigeration, give the chia pudding a good stir to break up any clumps and ensure a smooth consistency.
  4. Makes one meal serving or two snack-size servings. Top with fresh berries or other desired toppings, such as chopped, shredded coconut, or cacao nibs.


  • Protein powder scoop sizes will vary. Aim for 25-35 grams of protein in this recipe. A combination of flavored and unflavored may help if your protein powder is very sweet.
  • For an unflavored version, try collagen peptides.
