Is Chia Seed Protein Pudding With Strawberry And Banana A Good Snack?

I am obsessed with a chia seeds and Vegan Plant-Based Gluten-Free Vanilla Protein Powder ingredient combination. Adding fresh strawberries and the sugary goodness of a ripe banana to the top is such a great treat. This protein pudding is a healthy snack that is both sweet and filling. There are 7g of fiber, 13g of healthy fats and 9g of protein in this meal. 

Are you a busy body with a ton of items on that days to-do-list? 

This might just be the kind of healthy snack your body needs to fuel itself and that you’ll love to make often because it takes no time at all to whip up!

Are Chia Seeds Ok To Eat Every Day?

Yes; You can definitely eat chia seeds daily. I mean, I wouldn’t be eating chia at every meal, but eating them often is great, unless your digestive system is not a fan. The health benefits of the chia seed are vast, resulting in a great amount of fiber, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Our bodies also need healthy foods that make a great source for bone health. The chia seed is a powerhouse, super food, pretty much. 

What Do Chia Seeds Taste Like?

These tiny black seeds have a very mild, nutty taste.  Eating a raw chia seed reminds me of eating an alfalfa sprout.  They can be added as-is, to the top of practically any food. If you allow them to soak for a bit of time, I have found that they easily adapt to the flavor of whatever they are soaking in. This makes the chia seed THE star of my meal, ya know? 

It’s one of the easiest ways to add fiber to your diet, too. Also, this incredible boost of fiber does not taste like the Metamucil bars my mom used to force me to eat as a kid. I wish she knew about chia seeds when I was 12, but I digress. 

What Is The Best Way To Eat Chia Seeds?

You can easily add chia seeds to both hot and cold foods. I personally love adding chia to my individual sized greek yogurt’s when I’m in a hurry and need to eat something fast.

If I was a good girl and participated in meal prepping days before my snack, My Chia Seed Pudding Snack Recipe With Gluten-Free Vegan Protein Powder is my favorite way to eat chia seeds.

I will also eat chia seeds in my smoothies and fresh juices, my oatmeal and even on top of my salad. In fact, I am working on developing a chia seed salad dressing right now! Yum!

Let's Watch This Chia Seed Protein Pudding With Strawberry And Banana Come To Life

Organic Vegan Plant-Based Protein Powder

My eyes were getting tired looking at protein powder nutritional labels. Do you know how many different types of protein powders there are in the world right now? Too, too many.

Happening upon The Garden Of Life brand a few months ago was the find of the century. It’s Plant-Based, Organic, Gluten-Free, Vegan and has a whopping 20 grams of protein per scoop serving!

This brand of protein powder also promote being pesticide-free, non-toxicity and is an NSF Certified, Non-GMO product. These things are incredibly important to this mama of four cute humans.

There are two other must-have qualities when looking for a plant based protein powder; Sugar and Carbs. Garden Of Life Organic Protein Shake Powder one has 0 grams of sugar and only 2 grams of carbohydrates per scoop serving. 

I actually wondered if it was too good to be true and if this powder would taste like chalk. It does not, by the way. 

What Are The Benefit Of Soaking Chia Seeds?

When you allow raw chia seeds to soak in pretty much ANY liquid, they will plump up and transform into a jelly-like substance. There are several benefits of soaking your chia seeds, before eating them. Here are a few that stood out the most to me, when I was researching these powerful little guys:

  • A soaked chia seed will help your body digest fiber better.
  • High in absorbency, chia seeds will keep you hydrated longer.
  • Soaked chia seeds help reduce stress and anxiety.
  • Soaking Chia Seeds for several hours may even help regulate metabolism.
