How to make  Salted Chocolate Caramel Chia Seed Protein Pudding

 Making this chia seed pudding is so simple. Grab a small mason jar with a lid and pour in the plant milk of your choice. Then add a scoop of vegan protein powder to the non-dairy milk and place the lid on the jar. Shake it up well. You can also use a portable blender. Then add the chia seeds and place on the lid again. Shake well and place it in the fridge for several hours, preferably overnight. That way the chia seeds can swell up to thicken the milk.

 In the morning, grab a glass and the Lekkco chocolate spread along with some sliced strawberries. Soften the Salted caramel chocolate spread in the microwave for 10 seconds. Then have fun layering the chia pudding, chocolate spread, and strawberries. The Salted Chocolate Caramel Chia Seed Protein Pudding is ready to eat.
