  • This high-protein vanilla-coconut chia pudding is an all-around favourite due to its rich taste. Chia seeds are also a great source of fibre and omega-3 fat.

  • 330 mL (1 bottle) Vanilla Ensure® Protein Max 30 g.
  • 45 mL (3 Tbsp) canned coconut milk
  • 60 mL (¼ cup) chia seeds
  • 30 mL (2 Tbsp) unsweetened shredded coconut

How to make

  • Combine all ingredients in a sealable container and shake until blended.
  • Cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight. The chia seeds will begin to absorb the liquid – you may need to restir the seeds if they settle to the bottom while refrigerated. The mixture is ready when it reaches a pudding-like consistency.
  • Mix before serving to ensure there are no lumps. Serve cold.
