Workout Pudding Recipe: Chocolate & Coconut

The idea of recovery & workout puddings is something that I learned by reading Branden Brazier's book Thrive.  Although this is a fantastic powerhouse of nutrients and protein, this is also tasty and a good dessert.  The texture will be unusual to anyone not used to eating chia seeds.  There is no photo of this because it looks like chocolate goo.  It's not cute.  The next time I make it, I'll take a picture.  Seriously though, it looks like goo, and you're not missing out by this post not having a picture.

  • 1/2 c milk (I used Almond Plus Milk from So Delicious) OR 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 2 tbsp Spectrum Decadent Blend Chia & Flax Seed with Coconut & Cocoa
  • 1/2 scoop RAW Protein Powder in Chocolate (or any chocolate protein powder)
  • 2 tbsp chocolate almond butter (I get mine fresh ground at Whole Foods)

Combine half of the milk (or coconut water) with the Spectrum Decadent blend and let sit for 10-15 minutes.  Alternatively, you can use a food processor or blender.  I just used a fork & a bowl.  After it has coagulated, add the remaining ingredients & combine until thoroughly blended.

This is a pretty generous portion and could easily be divided into two servings.  This would also be delicious with a banana mashed into it.  Nom!
