Mixed Berry Protein Chia Pudding


Creamy, dairy-free Mixed Berry Protein Chia Pudding is quick-to-make and meal prep friendly. It makes for a satisfying and tasty breakfast, snack or treat with a boost of protein from collagen and boost of fiber from chia seeds and berries. 

This post was created in partnership with our friends at Primal Kitchen.

Made in just 5 minutes of your time with only 5 ingredients that are found in your pantry and freezer.

That’s right, 5 ingredients in just 5 minutes of your time is all it takes for Mixed Berry Protein Chia Pudding to come together and it’s made all in your blender (or food processor) so clean-up is quick. All you need to make this recipe is a can of coconut milk, frozen berries, lemon juice (optional), vanilla extract, protein powder (like collagen) and chia seeds. So easy. For the frozen berries, use what you have on hand. Heck, you could use any frozen fruit of choice. It’s a versatile recipe for all to enjoy and a great one for the kids’ to help with making.

Toss the ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth and then let it set! That’s it.

It truly couldn’t be easier! Most of the time involved making the Mixed Berry Protein Chia Pudding is the patience that you will need as it sits in the fridge to thicken. That’s right, it will have to sit in the fridge for at least 4  hours for the chia seed to work their magic and create a pudding like consistency. So no need to panic when you blend it up and it looks more like a smoothie. All it needs is a little time in the fridge.

A boost of protein from collagen.

I alway felt that the one thing missing in chia pudding was decent amount of protein. Well, Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides to the rescue! Mixed Berry Protein Chia Pudding is the final recipe of our grab-and-go recipe series with all containing a boost of protein from our favorite collagen brand. You can find the first two recipes here (Paleo Almond Joy Energy Bites) and here (Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies).

But lets get back to this Mixed Berry Protein Chia Pudding. Each serving contains 10-12 grams of quality protein mostly from collagen, an impressive 6-7 grams of fibers thanks to the chia seeds and mixed berries AND only 10 grams of carbs (4 grams of naturally occurring sugar)! For fat this recipe contains 19-24 grams  which some may look at the fat amount and think it’s a bit high. I look at that as a good thing because out of all macro nutrients, fat is what will keep you the most satiated (feeling of fullness). It helps to keep blood sugars nice and stable and well, it makes food really delicious!

Feel free to use any of the Primal Kitchen Collagen flavors in this recipe!

  • unsweetened coconut flakes
  • nuts or seeds
  • nut or seed butter
  • hemp hearts
  • cacao nibs or chocolate chips
  • a drizzle of honey or maple syrup

Add this recipe to your next meal prep!

Chia pudding makes for a great meal prep recipes because it keeps well in the fridge for up to 5-6 days. I like to portion the pudding out into 5 small mason jars for an easy grab-and-go breakfast, snack or treat option.
