A healthy recipe for cookies-n-cream chia seed pudding that is gluten-free, dairy-free and made with coconut kefir.
Lori and I have been slowly getting back into playing in the kitchen. We have so many recipes we want to share, just takes time to plan it out, take pictures, edit pictures, and write up the post. So we thank you all for still sticking around through all the craziness here from moving, remodeling, etc.
We did a lot of work around Lori’s new house yesterday that around 4 or so in the afternoon we had a craving for something cool and refreshing. It has been hot here, so baking did not seem appealing.
Coconut kefir cookies-n-cream chia seed pudding recipe. Vegan. Gluten-free.
Chia pudding to the rescue!
You all know we love our chia seeds.
Gluten-free dairy-free Cookies-n-Cream Chia Pudding
inspired by mini cookies-n-cream cakes
Prep-time – a few minutes to gather the ingredients then about 15 minutes or so as the chia pudding sets.
Cook time – zero
- 2 cups coconut kefir ( we used So Delicious Diary Free Plain Coconut Kefir) or you could make your own coconut kefir recipe.
- 3 tbsp protein powder of choice
- 4 tbsp chia seeds
- 2-4 chocolate cookies (some recipes below)
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
Place coconut kefir, protein powder, chia seeds, and coconut oil into a blender and whip together. Then let set in fridge for about 10-15 minutes.
Once chia starts to thicken, stir in your cookie crumbs.
If desire more sweetness, add a few drops of stevia. Or whatever sweetener you desire.
Some great cookies you could use in this recipe are:
man, do we love our cookie-like desserts or what? haha
Twins Questions: Do you like cookies-n-cream? Have your ever tried coconut kefir before? If so, did you like it? Do you like kefir or yogurt better?
Lori likes ‘cookie dough’ better then cookies-n-cream, I would have to agree. But we can never turn down anything chocolate based! And we enjoy both kefir and yogurt equally.
till next time,
