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 four hours for the chia seeds 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.Creamy, dairy-free Mixed Berry Protein Chia Pudding is quick-to-make & meal prep friendly.

A boost of protein from collagen.
I always felt that the one thing missing in chia pudding was a 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—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 let’s 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!

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.
