Chia seeds on their own are already a great source of protein but with the addition of chocolate protein powder, this recipe goes from good to great. 

When I’m at school I love to make a big batch of this high protein chia pudding at the beginning of the week and store it in the fridge so that I can have it for breakfast or a high-protein snack on the go.

My favorite thing about this high protein chia pudding is that it feels like you’re eating dessert when everything you’re eating is so good for your body. Chia seeds are not only a great source of protein, but they also have a good amount of fiber and healthy fat.

This high-protein Chia seed pudding is the best before class snack, after workout snack, high protein breakfast before an exam, or just an every day go-to.

For this recipe, I chose to sweeten with agave, but you could do honey, maple syrup, or any sweetener of your choice. I made this high-protein Chia seeds pudding with chocolate protein powder because it’s my preferred flavor, but you could do this exact same recipe with vanilla, peanut butter, or any protein of your choice. I use plant-based Vega protein and greens chocolate flavored protein powder. It’s gluten free, vegan, has no added sugars, no artificial colors, no artificial flavors or preservatives, and is derived from pea protein. I love this protein powder because it’s made with real plant-based food ingredients and I always feel great after either drinking or eating it.

You can serve this high protein chia pudding as is, or you could add whatever toppings you may like. I like to serve it with a little bit of granola on top and some strawberries, but you could do a dollop of Greek yogurt for added protein, or a squeeze of honey on top for some extra sweetness.

This high protein chia pudding will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for about 5 to 7 days, but it never lasts that long in my fridge anyway. This recipe is so good, I could eat this for dessert.

This high protein chia pudding is my go to when I need a quick and easy breakfast and want to feel good all day. All the ingredients in this high protein chia pudding are great for you and they will leave you feeling energized and sharp all day long. I used to not love the taste of chia, but the chocolate protein powder really levels up this dish in both flavor and nutrition.
