Chocolate Coconut Chia Protein Pudding
Makes 1 serving

2TBSP chia seeds
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (used Vega One Chocolate)
2TBSP canned coconut milk or So Delicious Culinary Coconut Milk box

In a bowl mix together chia and the 1 cup of milk, let sit for approx 15 minutes or more, to thicken. I usually mix the chia and milk together the night before, or before my workout, and store it in the refrigerator. Stir in chocolate protein powder to the chia mixture until combine. In another bowl mix together 2 tablespoons canned coconut milk and shredded coconut, add sweetener to taste if needed. In a glass or bowl layer half of the chocolate chia mixture, all of the coconut mixture, and the remaining chocolate chia mixture. Top with optional Chocolate Fudge Drizzle and sliced almonds. Enjoy!
As a Vega Recipe Ambassador I received Vega products , I also purchase these products, that may have been use in creating this recipe. I use Vega not because it is given to me but because it has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.
