Last year, about this time, I share a video on my YouTube channel for my awesome chocolatey, protein chia seed pudding. It was a quick video and had all of the listed ingredients that you needed including measurements, but I LOVE making sure that you guys have printable recipes. I imagine your binder with all of the little plastic paper holders and all of your favorite recipes inside.
Who knows… Maybe one day I’ll be blessed enough to add a cookbook to your shelf.
I love this recipe for a few different reasons. In the morning, I hate having to wake up and deal with making a big breakfast while trying to get three kids to the bus and myself off to work. While I’m typically a morning person, I’m more of a mid-morning person before I finally reach my normal, perky self. This recipe is easy to make. It’s also easy to make a large batch to put in the fridge for the week ahead. Plus… If it’s one of those mornings I can throw it in a cup and take it on the run with me to work. Lastly, due to my hypoglycemia I’m always looking for higher protein content meals so that I can try to keep my blood sugar balanced for longer without heavy crashes like with high fruit sugar filled smoothies.
Make sure if you try it to tag me on Instagram or Facebook @workhardeatkind or tag me with the hashtag #eatingkind. I’d love to see it. Keep in mind you don’t have to use the exact same ingredients. Play around with it and feel free to share in the comments.
