Collagen Chia Pudding - 2 Ways

Beauty Boosting Collagen Chia Breakfast with Vital Proteins Matcha Strawberry Lemon Collagen

I've gotten my mom hooked on energy bites, my dad hooked on banana date cookies, and I'm about to get you hooked on something else. It's pretty next level. We've all heard of OOs-- overnight oats. Am I right? And they're old news. I got a new trick up my sleeve and it's a breakfast that will fill you up long time, work on your beauty routine and even give you a boost of energy without the crash. Did I mention it will really GET THINGS moving (if you know what I mean)? Collagen chia pudding. Guys, it's my new thing, and I can't stop eating it. I think this is like my 13th day in a row of having it for breakfast. What can I say? When I like something, I really like something!

So what is it? It's essential chia pudding but mixed with a few amazing additions. Chia seeds are packed with amazing nutrients. Omega 3's, fiber, protein, and they expand in your tummy, keeping you full longer.  I love Vital Proteins collagen (I did a whole post on it, here), so when they recently came out with their on-the-go packs of Beauty Collagen and Matcha Collagen, my mind immediately went into creative drive, concocting all the things I could do with them. I've revamped my Matcha bars into bites with them, and have made some delish strawberry beauty balls.

But back to the chia. This recipe is SO insanely easy to whip together. I make a big batch on a Sunday and separate them into jars for the week. It's so filling, just lightly sweetened with yacon syrup, and you can customize it to your liking. To hone in on the antioxidizing, detoxifying, energy boosting, skin/hair/nails improving benefits you will need collagen. But it's worth the investment. Let me break down the basic recipe then I will share how I customize each one.

Chia Pudding:
4 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 cup almond milk
2 spoonfuls Yoso coconut yogurt (optional-- I like it because it makes the texture more creamy)
1 tsp Organic Traditions yacon syrup (if you don't have, maple syrup will do, Yacon Syrup is just less sweet, and contains prebiotics)

Ingredients:
1. Mix all ingredients together in a jar and put the lid on and shake
2. Make sure all chia seeds are incorporated and not stuck to the side of jar
3. Separate into two jars (or more, depending on how big you want your serving sizes to be)

Collagen Additions:
4. Add in 1 packet of Matcha Collagen to one jar (I add some coconut flakes on the top)
5. Add in 1 packet of Strawberry Beauty Collagen to the other jar (I add a dab of lemon juice and lemon zest, along with some frozen berries)

Why Strawberry Collagen? It's packed with hyaluronic acid, improves digestion, sleep, and hydrates your skin.
Why Matcha Collagen? A calm and focusing energy-boost without the crash! Again the 10 g of collagen in each pack ensures your getting skin, nail, and hair benefits, too.

There you have it. Your new breakfast, snack, on-the-go beauty boost. Let me know if you try it!
