An easy and filling recipe, this chocolate chia seed protein pudding is high in fiber and protein and a perfect breakfast option you can prep ahead for busy weekday mornings!


  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (filling a mason jar almost to the top works too — just leave room so everything can shake up together!)
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder (optional for a more chocolatey flavor)
  • pinch of salt
  • 12 teaspoons maple syrup or honey (optional)
  • Optional toppings: Fresh berries, nut butter, unsweetened coconut flakes, etc.


  1. Combine chia seeds, flaxseed, non-dairy milk, protein powder, cocoa powder and salt (and maple syrup or honey, if using) in a mason jar.
  2. Shake everything up and refrigerate for at least an hour (ideally 2+) or overnight. If you are awake and around, shaking the pudding periodically will greatly help evenly disperse the chia seeds and improve the texture of the pudding. (I like to give it a shake about 30-45 minutes after I initially put it in the fridge. If possible, don’t skip this step because it absolutely makes a difference!)
  3. Top chia seed pudding with desired toppings and enjoy!
