We've created a protein loaded breakfast (and snack ) that fits every style of eating. It's gluten-free, dairy free, full of fiber and packed with protein. You can make it plant based by using a plant based protein or choose to use whey. The best part is that it can be made in batches so you can wake up, grab and go! Chia seeds are hydrophilic meaning the will absorb the liquid around them expanding to make you full. They are also loaded with fiber!
I like to make 4 servings at once. I bought mini glass mason jars and divide the pudding into 4 servings.
2 Carrots (medium, grated)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
2 tsp Stevia Powder (to taste)
4 cups Unsweetened Almond Milk
4 tbsps Chia Seeds
4 tbsps Walnuts (chopped)
4 servings Garden Of Life Plant Based Sport or Whey protein powder of choice
1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the shredded carrot, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, protein and stevia. Add the almond milk, then whisk in the chia seeds. Let sit for 5 minutes, then stir again to redistribute the chia seeds. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
2. Divide into bowls or mason jars and garnish with chopped walnuts. Enjoy!
Store in fridge for up to 4 days.

For those who don't like Pumpkin or carrot flavor you can change the ingredients around to be simply Chia seeds, almond milk, cinnamon and protein powder.
