1 scoop Vega Vanilla Chai protein powder or other Vega flavor of choice
2 tablespoons almond butter
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Stevia to taste (I used 3 packets)
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (optional, omit if you want a vegan treat)
In sealable plastic container, combine chia seeds, almond milk and protein powder. Stir until very well combined. Cover with lid and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
After refrigeration, add chia mixture to blender or food processor along with the almond butter, vanilla extract and stevia to taste. Blend 2 to 3 minutes or until some of the chia seeds are broken up and almond butter is well combined. Mixture will only be semi-smooth and still have some whole chia seeds.
Divide mixture into four bowls. Top each with ¼ cup Greek yogurt, if desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.
