I’m ALL for simplicity when it comes to my food, and faffing around the kitchen for hours is definitely not my idea of fun…. but simplicity must also taste delicious and deliver all the nutrients your body needs šŸ˜‰

This Blueberry Chia Protein Pudding is a little different to most of the other chia pudding recipes I’ve shared, but I think it looks better, tastes better and contains even more protein and antioxidants!

In fact, it’s a bit like a cross between a smoothie and a pudding. But I love the thick, smooth creamy texture and it’s so easy that I’m almost embarrassed to dedicate a whole post to it.

After a challenging workout yesterday, I was starving and in need of something sweet, cold and filling to cool me down and begin the process of muscle repair. Chia is a brilliant source of protein, fibre, antioxidants and minerals including calcium and iron, so it makes the perfect post-training food. Antioxidants are crucial after strenuous exercise, as your body naturally releases free radicals into your system. The antioxidants are needed to mop up these free radicals to protect your cells from damage and premature ageing. Blueberries, pomegranates seeds and types of berries are jam-packed with protective antioxidants!

I added a scoop of vanilla Sunwarrior protein powder to the mix, plus some vanilla powder and unsweetened almond milk for a yummy, sweet, creamy milkshake flavour with absolutely no refined sugar šŸ™‚
