Green Dream Chia Seed Pudding

Alright Tribe! So I have made my fair share of chia seed puddings over the years, but I have never made one as luscious as the version I’m about to share. It’s sort of funny actually, because this recipe was a complete spur-of-the-moment creation...but it turned out so unbelievably well that is now a permanent recipe at the Philosophie household.

Last week, when I was organizing my pantry, I found a lone bag of chia seeds and a can of coconut milk. I have SO many random things in there, and figured since I missed the boat on spring cleaning, that perhaps a little “summer” cleaning would be a good idea. I’d like to note that I am not a hoarder, I just tend to hold onto things for a very very very long time...

So this was the perfect opportunity to clear out some space, and make something super yummy at the same time. I figured why not include the two things that I had noticed along with a few other pantry staples.

And actually, I think this pantry theme worked out quite well. No cooking, no chopping, and literally only a handful of ingredients. The hardest part about putting this together was figuring out how to use my new wacky contraption of a can opener to get the lid of the coconut milk. The struggle was REAL, but it was well worth it. The coconut milk makes this pudding so thick and creamy, and loads it up with an ample dose of saturated fats to support brain function and healthy appetites. I also added some Green Dream for a detoxifying and energizing boost of superfoods.

I do realize that this recipe makes A LOT of pudding for one person, so I portioned out a few servings to save for later. My boys are always hungry, and I usually have multiple people in and out of the house during the day, so having a few extra treats on hand is always a good idea...I just recommend hiding one for yourself, because once everyone gets a taste, these puddings are going to be gobbled up in a hot second!

Gather This:

Serves 3-4

Do This:

1. Pour the entire can of coconut milk into a bowl, along with the water, honey and vanilla.

2. Add in your chia seeds, protein powder and Green Dream, and give everything a good mix. Make sure all of your ingredients are combined, then add into separate jars or ramekins.

3. Set you pudding in the fridge to chill (until the chia seeds absorb the liquid- about an hour so).  Add a little sea salt or sweetener to taste, along with some of your favorite toppings. I am obsessed with Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter, so this was an obvious choice for me!

Robin, I am so excited to hear that! I would actually try substituting some 1/2 of the nut milk for cold brew coffee, or chilled espresso. The flavor will intensify the chocolatey taste of the cacao!

I tried this recipe today and it was nothing short of insanely delicious! I am thinking of making it again, but am considering substituting the Cocoa Magic for the Green Dream. Do you have any suggestions on anything I could add to make it even more delicious and nutritious when made with the Cocoa Magic instead? Thanks very much!

Easy Peasy Chocolate Protein Pancakes + Waffles

Chocolate Cacao Superfood Protein Waffles

Host brunch at home with these simple-to-make, protein-packed, nutritionally dense chocolate superfood pancakes and waffles! They have an oh-so-yummy flavor fusion of cinnamon and vanilla, not to mention a burst of vitamins and minerals from our superfood and protein blends. In the pancakes, the vanilla especially helps to balance out the Green Dream and leafy greens, which add a boost of chlorophyll for radiant skin and hair.

For these, I like to use any gluten-free batter mix (Trader Joe’s has a wonderful one!), but Birch Blenders also offers an array of delicious mixes, if you don’t need to eat gluten-free. I also love swapping whatever oil the batter box calls for with Thrive Algae Oil (a tablespoon has the same amount of healthy fat as one whole avocado!) or the fabulously versatile coconut oil.

Be sure to freeze the waffles if you have extra–they make for a wholesome, anytime-of-day snack or dessert and are definitely one-of-a-kind. You won’t be finding any superfood-charged waffles at the grocery store. ;)

Philosophie Superfood Protein Waffles

Gather This:

For the Pancakes:

  • your favorite gluten-free or paleo pancake mix (and ingredients it requires)
  • 1 tablespoon Green Dream Superfood Blend
  • 1 small handful greens
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • a dash of vanilla extract
  • slivered almonds (topping)
  • maple syrup or Berry Bee Honey (topping)

For the Waffles:

  • your favorite gluten-free or paleo waffle mix (and ingredients it requires)
  • Thrive Algae Oil or coconut oil (to use as an ingredient in the mix)
  • 2 tablespoons Cacao Magic Superfood Blend
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • a dash of vanilla extract
  • a sprinkling of bee pollen not an animal protect-B vitamins, like B-12 (topping)
  • Cacao Bee Honey (topping)

Do This:

Follow the instructions on the pancake or waffle mix you’re using, and use a blender to whip all of the ingredients together (this is especially important for the pancakes since you’ll want to liquify the leafy greens!). Cook the batter on a skillet or in the waffle iron to create your pancakes and/or waffles. Once they’re done, sprinkle with your favorite toppings (bee pollen is wonderful for the waffles and is loaded with vitamin B-12, an essential nutrient for your brain, blood, + nervous system!) + ENJOY!

    Boo Berry Antioxidant Smoothie

    Get ready for a chilly night out with your little trick-or-treaters with this spicy, immunity-boosting smoothie! 

    Fresh ginger is an excellent cold-buster and tummy-soother, and cayenne possesses anti-irritant, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-flu properties (you can always go light on the cayenne and ginger too if you're sensitive to spiciness). The healing Berry Bee Honey adds a bit of sweetness to counterbalance the spice and has natural antibiotic properties, while the coconut butter brings in healthy MCT fats, helps take out some of the kick, and adds the lovely creaminess. And with its high vitamin C levels, Berry Bliss packs in a load of antioxidants, which combat free radicals and keep our immune system cells safe. 

    Boo Berry Orange Smoothie

    Gather This: 

    1 cup nut milk of choice
    1/2 frozen banana
    1 tablespoon orange zest, plus juice of 1/4 orange
    1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger (or a one inch piece)
    1 full packet of acai (we love the Sambazon packs!)
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne
