Prep Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

Chia Pudding:

  • 1/3 chia seeds
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk I use almond milk
  • 1 cup Greek style coconut yogurt or any non-dairy yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or other liquid sweetener

Goji Berry+Banana Smoothie:

  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 2 medium bananas peeled and frozen
  • 1/4 cup goji berries soaked for at least 2 hours in 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chia pudding recipe above

Optional Add-Ins:

  • 1 medium banana sliced
  • 1/2 cup mixed berres
  • goji berries
  • vegan cookie dough balls I used this recipe for cookie dough protein bars, but rolled it into tiny balls and used mini vegan chocolate chips instead of chunks.
  • cocoa nibs
  • granola

Instructions

Chia Pudding:

  1. Stir together the ingredients for the chia pudding in a small bowl or container and allow it to thicken in the fridge for at least 5 hours.

Goji Berry+Banana Smoothie:

  1. Add the soaked goji berries (and the water they soaked in) to a blender or food processor along with the lemon juice, 1/4 cup of the prepared chia pudding, and the maple syrup. Blend until smooth then add the frozen berries and banana. Blend until you have a very thick icecream-like mixture.

Jars:

  1. Layer the chia pudding with the smoothie and desired add-ins in jars or bowls. (I like to layer all the goji berries and sometimes granola or cocoa nibs throughout so you can get the crunch.)
