I’ve recently developed a new obsession – glass jars. Whenever I finish a jar of salsa or tomato sauce, I run it through the dishwasher and then put it on my shelf. Over the past year I’ve probably collected too many glass jars of all shapes and sizes this way. But the thing is, I love them. I have jars specified for different types of granola, flax seeds, homemade apple sauce and now, homemade chia pudding. Especially when the end result is as pretty as this golden milk pudding, the glass jar puts it on display perfectly.
This recipe for homemade chia pudding is entirely plant based, vegan, paleo and Whole 30 approved. In layman’s terms, it’s reaalllyyy good for you!
Because I usually get my chia pudding fix as part of my breakfast or a snack, I decided to add a bit of extra protein to the mix. Chia seeds themselves are a great source of protein, but the added flavor and protein from the chocolate plant based protein powder helps keep me full longer – which means less room to snack on not-so-healthy treats!
Note: Due to the added chocolate protein powder, this golden milk chia pudding does not yield a “golden” colored pudding. If you’re looking for the traditional coloring, don’t use the protein powder and instead add another 1/2 tsp of turmeric to your pudding.
