So you like pudding? You could not have some during the keto diet? So let´s change it. In the following recipe you will see more options and variations how to prepare the perfect breakfast (or yummy snack). Ladies and gents…chia pudding.
The size of portions is only up to you and depending on your taste. From following I have prepared 2 portions.
- Milk or cream
- Sweetener (stevia or as prefered) or the keto flavour pill
- Protein powder
Is that all? Of course! Let´s go step by step and mention how you can addapt it to your taste and needs.
Into small glasses (really small or any preferable small container) distribute chia seeds, cinnamon, cocoa (if you have powder sweetener add it now too) evenly. The poorest variation is to bring over 300ml of water, but preferable to adjust those 300 ml and change part for milk or cream…or substitute whole water if you want! You can also add protein powder as you like. For this recipe I have used 13 g of it.
If you don´t have sweetener, but you use keto flavouring pills I suggest 1 and half disolving before pouring over the mixture.
Pour the liquid into glasses, close it and shake properly and put it into fridge for 4+ hours. If the mix is loose after that time, feel free to add more chia seeds (mix with teaspoon, not shake directly as it will stick to the sides).
Nutritious facts(one portion = half):
- Protein: 7,5g
- Carbs: 8,5g
- Fats: 7g
Chia seeds are high on carbs, so you can reduce the amount and the pudding will be more liquid. These numbers are counted from 100ml of milk used so you can decrease it by 2,5 g if you only use water.
