Banana Protein Chia Pudding
Hello folks! Greetings from Italy!
I want to start this post with one big announcement: since my arrival in Europe (Germany first and Italy now), I have gained 2 kg!!!!! Yes, you heard me.
I actually could not believe the number I saw when I stepped on the scale this morning….I was up to 51 kg while I was at my fit and lean 49 kg when I arrived….
Now, ok tomorrow is new year’s eve so big dinner with my friends and Sunday is a huge lunch with my whole family so forget any possibility to eat healthy and get back in shape…I guess my “come back” program will only start once I am back to Shanghai in a couple of weeks…Which will probably mean 2 more kgs on my tights….
However, for those of you who can stay lean and want to follow an heathy diet even during holiday season here is a great dessert/breakfast idea high in good fats, fibers and protein and very low in carbs and sugar.
I made this when i was in China as a quick grab and go breakfast. Give it a try!
- 1 cup soy milk (or almond milk)
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 + 1/2 banana
- 1 scoop pea protein powder
- topping of choice (walnuts, dry coconut, berries, others)
Combine all ingredients into a blender
Blend until creamy
Portion the mixture into small jars, cover with a lid and place in your fridge overnight
Serve with some sliced banana and crushed walnuts or other toppings like dry coconut, chocolate nibs, berries and creme fresh.
