Chocolate chia protein pudding
Need a break from smoothie bowls? Look no further - this chocolate chia pudding is protein-packed and a perfect pairing for your favourite seasonal fruits. I love bowls like this because they're easy to throw together with whatever you have in the kitchen; there are endless possibilities and you can add any fruits, nuts, and flavours you like. I chose blueberries, fresh mango chunks, hemp hearts, and sunflower seeds for my toppings, with a few clusters of granola and leaves of micro basil for decoration. This pudding is thick and rich, and tastes like dessert for breakfast!
