Chia Pudding & NEWS! 

Hey all!

I knows it’s been a while…butttttt here I am with some great news!  I will now also be sharing some love over at www.modernathletichealth.com. Woohoo!  Be sure to follow me over there to get awesome recipes & info for your paleo, health & wellness toolbox, soooo exciting! 😀 

Ok, back to food. I have a yummy treat sure to please. I’ve been making Chia Pudding for quite some time now & it is forever evolving. Or I just get bored.. 😎. Chia is so beneficial to include in your diet! Talk about a Protein, Calcium, Vitamin C, Potassium, Omega-3, blood sugar stabilizing powerhouse! (I’m out of breath…) Here is the latest version that I’ve been living on!
  
(I promise there’s pudding under there somewhere!)

Banana Chia Pudding:

(You may want to double this recipe!)

1/4 cup chia seeds (black or white)

1 cup full fat coconut milk 

1 (6-7ish oz) jar organic banana baby food (or 1 mashed super ripe nanner)

Pinch of cinnamon 

In a jar, add all of your ingredients except the chia seeds. Top with the seeds, put the top on and shake wilddddly! Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to set. Top this pudding with some whipped coconut cream and you will be in heaven! (Trust me.. Coconut cream is life.) 😀 

Enjoy!

Hemp Protein Fudge!!

Sooooooo…I’m all about the post wod protein business, BUT I don’t like all of the whey proteins or the other protein powders that have a crap load of junk in them!!!!!! It’s totally unnecessary! I prefer to go with hemp protein. It doesn’t mix as well or come in a fabulous array of flavors…BUT it does the job! I was craving a sweet treat, and had just finished my hemp protein with coconut water serving (so yummy!), but wanted more! So here we have Hemp Protein Fudge! Oh, better yet…NO BAKE! 😊 5 ingredients later, this is what we have!

Hemp Protein Fudge:
makes about 12-16 1 inch (ish) squares
1/4 cup hemp protein powder
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp coconut cream (optional)
1/4 cup maple syrup (or honey)
1/2 cup coconut oil, softened

Now here’s the fun part…mix everything in a food processor, pour into a small square or rectangular container lined with wax paper & freeze for at least 2 hours!! Then you can enjoy your tasty creamy protein-y treat! Store in the freezer. 😊
