Paleo Chocolate Chip Chia Pudding

I have made Chia Pudding before, which I really really loved. It is super healthy, packed with nutrients, and the flavor options are endless. The thing is, it really isn’t the consistency or texture of actual pudding, so a slight change needed to happen (for me), and it only took one additional step to get it there!


I call this Espresso Chocolate Chip based on the ingredients, but to me it tastes more like Cookies ‘N Cream. Really really good, Cookies ‘N Cream. I wouldn’t except strong coffee/espresso flavor here, unless you add more into it. Except a cross between the two!  

I love this as a mid-day snack, a dessert, or even a post-workout treat because it uses my favorite protein powder, SFH, to make it a complete good-for-you package. The texture of thick pudding, loaded with delicious flavor, protein, and nutrients! #win
