Strawberry Muesli Pudding


    Strawberry Muesli Pudding

    This make-ahead breakfast option takes the woulda-coulda-shoulda out of eating a nourishing breakfast. The tag team of deliciously thick skyr yogurt and protein powder make each spoonful a protein heavyweight. Besides being ultra-nutritious (hello, fibre and healthy fats), chia seeds have the remarkable ability to soak up great amounts of liquid, leaving you with a spoon-worthy tapioca-like consistency. If skyr yogurt is not available, Greek is a good substitute. The berry chia pudding and toppings can also be placed in a wide-mouth jar with a tight-fitting lid for a high-protein breakfast on the go.


    Great white

    In its Icelandic homeland, skyr is considered a cheese, but in Canada it is now marketed as a yogurt. Made by fermenting skim milk with cultures and then straining away the liquid, ultra-thick skyr is densely concentrated in protein, sometimes even more so than Greek yogurt.


    Strawberry Muesli Pudding


    • 1/3 cup (80 mL) milk or unsweetened dairy-free milk of choice
    • 1 cup (250 mL) plain skyr yogurt
    • 1 1/2 cups (350 mL) fresh or frozen (thawed) strawberries,
    • plus more for topping
    • 1/4 cup (60 mL) plain or vanilla protein powder of choice
    • 2 tsp (10 mL) honey
    • 1 tsp (5 mL) lemon zest or orange zest
    • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract (omit if using vanilla protein)
    • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground ginger (optional)
    • 6 Tbsp (80 mL) chia seeds
    • 2/3 cup (160 mL) muesli
    • 4 Tbsp (60 mL) cacao nibs (optional)



    In blender container, place milk, yogurt, strawberries, protein powder, honey, lemon zest or orange zest, vanilla (if using), cinnamon, ginger (if using), and a pinch of salt, and blend until smooth.
