Fig Chia Pudding

There is no need for a protein powder to make this protein-rich chia pudding. This easy recipe uses Greek yoghurt, which – combined with chia seeds – provides all protein needed.

Chia pudding is the ultimate “diet-friendly” breakfast and/or mid-day snack. It’s gluten-free, can be dairy-free, grain-free, refined sugar-free, and paleo-friendly… it fits in almost any dietary preference or restriction and doesn’t skimp on flavour! What I love most, is how customizable chia pudding is. And this makes it great for meal prepping. You can have many plain chia puddings in your fridge, and each time you can try a different topping!

An easy and delicious breakfast, this Fig Chia Pudding makes a light, creamy, and sweet combination. The figs are sweet and the granola crunchy and just makes the perfect breakfast!

Ingredients

  • 1.5 Tbsp 1.5 Tbsp chia seeds

  • 150 ml 5/8 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 100 g 2/5 cup yoghurt

  • 1 tsp 1 tsp no-calorie sweetener

  • 1/2 medium 1/2 medium fig

  • 1/2 medium 1/2 medium fig

  • 10 g 2 tsp granola

  • 1 Tbsp 1 Tbsp low-calorie jam

Directions

  • In a bowl combine your chia seeds, sweetener & almond milk. You will need to stir it quite well for the first 10 minutes to avoid clumping.
  • Set in the fridge to soak for at least 2 hours, or overnight. This is your chia pudding.
  • After it’s thickening, start assembling your breakfast.
  • Firstly, cut one fig in half, make a few fig slices and cut into quarters the rest.
  • Then place a few fig slices on the jar walls and press in with your fingers or a spoon to make them stick. Add a couple of spoons of chia pudding on the bottom, then add a few spoons of yoghurt on top and finish with the rest of the chia pudding.
  • Decorate with figs slices, jam & granola on top on serve.

Notes

  • To make it higher in protein, add in the chia mixture a couple of tablespoons of protein powder before refrigerating. Adjust with more milk to consistency.
