What goes into a tropical chia pudding?
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed I have a deep love for the tropics. This love applies to my cooking too! Even on cold winter days, you will find me eating a smoothie bowl or tropical inspired chia pudding while I’m wrapped up in a blanket.
This coconut chia pudding with mango puree is one of my favorite tropical inspired recipes. With spring coming up, I figured it’s the perfect time to share these cute little cups!
Chia pudding and protein
So how can you make chia pudding even better than it already is – not only taste, but also the health benefits? First of all, chia pudding is high in healthy omega 3 fatty acids for inflammation reduction, high in fibre, and depending on what you add into the pudding, high in minerals and vitamins. So what else do you need? How about additional protein? That would make it even better, but additional fermented protein – that is great!
Genuine health reached out to me to create a recipe featuring their fermented protein. I was so excited to create a recipe since I already use their protein in my morning shakes!
I used Genuine Health coconut fermented vegan protein+ in this recipe to add a nice boost of protein to keep me full. This fermented protein naturally breaks down the plant proteins used in the blend to make them more easily digestible, and help strengthen gut health.
The protein also uses a blend of 7 different plant sources, so you can be guaranteed a wider spectrum of amino acids. The coconut flavor is perfect for this recipe, and ads an extra boost of coconut goodness to the chia pudding!Print
