My kids like it when I make them breakfast before school. Who wouldn't want to have your meal served to you? The challenge is that I am in the gym with a wild 6:15 crew so making food for my kids is impossible, right? I've found I can still get a gold star from my kids and give them a great start to their day while being in the gym at the same time. Today I made Pumpkin Chia Pudding for them. The best thing is I made it at noon time for them to have tomorrow and there is enough for Dean and I to have too. Win win for all of us. And you can win too as this was so yummy and easy. (I licked the spoon after I dished it into serving bowls. Definitely yummy)
Pumpkin Chia Pudding
- 1.5 cups almond milk, I used apple juice as I didn't have any almond milk.
- ½ cup pumpkin puree
- 1 scoop protein powder, vanilla I used Graham Cracker
- 2 TB almond butter
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- Sea Salt, a pinch
Blend all ingredients, except chia seeds, until smooth. Place the blended mixture into a reseal-able large jar (smaller jars) then add chia seeds. Seal jar and shake.
Place in refrigerator overnight or for at least 3+ hours. Breakfast, snack or post workout recovery is served!
