Protein Pudding with Chia, Homemade Jam & Granola

Whether it's for a quick breakfast or snack, chia pudding is always a good choice! Prepare the pudding in advance, so it's ready to enjoy as soon as you get hungry. This simple, healthy and tasty dish contains no less than 18 g of protein per 250 ml serving — the ideal choice if you want to feel full until your next meal or eat a delicious, nutritious snack after a hard workout.

To make this recipe easier to prepare, use a high-protein beverage like Natrel Plus, which contains 2x more protein per serving than 2%, and chia seeds, which add a light and delicate taste. Their gelling effect and fibre content will also help you keep your appetite in check until your next meal.

Ingredients

For protein chia pudding:

  • 375 ml (1½ cups) Natrel Plus 2%
  • 60 ml (½ cup) honey or maple syrup
  • 6 tbsp white or black chia seeds

 

For homemade jam:

  • 375 ml (1½ cups) frozen raspberries
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) honey or maple syrup
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) white chia seeds
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) lemon juice
  • 2.5 ml (½ tsp) vanilla or sweet clover extract

 

For homemade express granola:

  • 60 g (¼ cup) crushed raw almonds
  • 60 g (¼ cup) crushed pecans
  • 125 ml (½ cup) oatmeal
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) honey or maple syrup
Preparation

In a bowl, place the Natrel Plus 2%, honey and chia seeds. Using a whisk or spoon, mix until the preparation has a uniform consistency. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the chia to thicken (see note below). In the meantime, pour the frozen raspberries and honey in a 500 ml microwave-safe bowl.

 

Cook for two minutes, until hot. Add the chia seeds, lemon juice and stir gently. Let thicken in the fridge with the pudding. Mix the chia pudding again and divide it into four portions. Spread the jam over the pudding and refrigerate overnight or at least three hours for a more pudding-like consistency.

 

Then, brown the almonds and pecans in a non-stick pan on medium-high heat for three minutes, without adding fat. Turn off the heat and add the oatmeal and honey. Spread over pudding and serve.
