I get “I’m just not hungry in the morning” a lot from my clients. Stomaching a full breakfast with eggs and the like it’s isn’t everybody’s jam and I totally get that! Having something light that you can grab & go or snack on throughout the morning can make breakfast feel much more doable! This chia pudding is exactly that and it can be made dairy (and gluten) free as well if you’d like! This meal (or snack) is creamy, light, a touch sweet, and can be adjusted for preferences and additional toppings can be added to make it your own. A few minutes of prep and pop it into the fridge and tomorrow you’ll have yourself a healthy and high fiber breakfast to start your day!!
🔹2T Chia seeds
🔹1 cup unsweetened almond milk
🔹3/4 scoop of your favorite protein powder (I love @beverly UMP
🔹1/2 cup frozen berries (or other fruit of choice)

🔹Shake really well until everything is incorporated. Break up any chunks with a fork if needed.
🔹Top with 1/2 cup frozen berries
🔹Place in the fridge for a few hours of overnight to thicken.
You can keep this recipe as simple as you’d like or add some toppings to change it up and make it really fancy.
Additional add-ins & toppings: cinnamon, cacao nibs, unsweetened shredded coconut, vanilla extract, banana slices, drizzled nut butter, hemp hearts, walnuts, almond slivers, or other nuts or seeds.
