Description

Protein packed healthy peanut butter and jelly chia pudding that makes for the easiest meal prep friendly healthy breakfast recipe!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/4 cups (10 oz) dairy free milk
  • 23 tbsp (1624 g) pea protein powder
  • 2 tbsp (1.5 oz) dairy free yogurt
  • 1 tbsp (21.5 g) maple syrup or coconut sugar or keto-friendly sweetener
  • 1 tsp (7.2 g) vanilla extract (optional: omit if your dairy free milk is flavored vanilla)
  • 4 tbsp (32 g) chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp (43 g)  peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp (43 g) blueberry jam, made from 1 cup blueberries (see Note)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the dairy free milk, pea protein powder, dairy free yogurt, and maple syrup (and optional vanilla extract) until the powder has completely dissolved. 
  2. Add in the chia seeds, and stir so that the chia seeds are evenly distributed.
  3. Place the bowl into the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours, or overnight (optimal).
  4. When ready to serve, divide into two jars and top with 1 tbsp of peanut butter each and 1 tbsp of blueberry jam each.
  5. This will last up to 1 week in the fridge, covered and stored in an airtight container.

Notes

To make the blueberry jam:

  1. Wash the blueberries, then heat them in a small pot with 1/4 cup water.
  2. Bring the water to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer and stir the berries.
  3. Cover the berries and allow them to cook for 15-20 minutes. They should be extremely soft and ready to mash.
  4. When they’re done, mash them with a fork and pour the jam into a jar. Allow the jar to cool for 10 minutes before placing into the fridge to chill for 1-2 hours. You can serve the jam immediately with your chia seed puddings or allow it to continue to jell in the fridge while cooling.
