NO TIME FOR BREAKFAST?

If you find yourself being short of time in the morning, often skipping breakfast, you are not alone. You are one out of many women and men who often skip breakfast due to lack of time.

But don’t panic, I’ve got a solution for you. Try this Chia Breakfast Pudding found in my program Body By Nina. Prepare this recipe the night before to have it ready in the morning. You can even prepare chia puddings for 2-3 days in advance. But for the best result try making it the night before.

Makes: 1 serve

Ingredients

  • 1.6 oz. of chia seeds
  • 1.1 oz. of whey protein isolate, flavour of your choice (I love chocolate!)
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 serve of PB2, chocolate

Directions

  • Combine the ingredients in a small container. Stir well to ensure that the chia seeds are not clumped together.*
  • Let sit in the fridge overnight.
  • In the morning, top with any Walden Farms topping.
  • Enjoy!

*You might need to stir a few times to ensure that all the chia seeds swell up to form a nice pudding. You may also need to adjust the amount of almond milk depending on which protein powder you use. It should be a runny consistency like pancake batter as the chia seeds will swell up and absorb over night.

Notes: I use Walden Farms pancake syrup and sprinkle with bee pollen. It’s delicious.

I’ve also thrown in another of my variations for all the caramel lovers out there!!
