This Blackberry Pomegranate and Hemp Protein Chia Pudding will take your plain chia seed pudding to another level of deliciousness.
And yes, in the food blogging world, "deliciousness" is a real word!
Hemp seeds were one of the first superfoods I fell in love with when I started eating clean and I have been faithfully loyal.
I don't even know where to start with my love for hemp seeds...they are so versatile and can be used in savory dishes, smoothies, desserts or as a topping on just about anything.
The best part about them is their nutritional profile.
They are an excellent source of vegan protein and healthy omega fats.
I've used hemp seed oil, hemp protein powder and of course, plain hemp seeds.
But today, I've got something really special to share with you besides just plain hemp seeds...how about some upgraded flavored hemp protein!
I was contacted by Natera to try out some of their hemp seed products and am impressed beyond words.
The packs I received were:
- Blackberry Pomegranate Hemp Protein - 15 g protein / 2 g omegas 3 & 6 / 5 g fiber
- Dark Chocolate Hemp Protein - 15 g protein / 2 g omegas 3 & 6 / 5 g fiber
- Maple Hemp Seeds - 7 g protein / 9 g omegas 3 & 6 / 1 g fiber
- Himalayan Pink Salt Hemp Seeds / 7 g protein / 9 g omegas 3 & 6 / 1 g fiber
While they all looked amazing, I immediately went for the Blackberry Pomegranate...what a great combination!
So for the recipe I made to share with you today, I used the Blackberry Pomegranate Hemp Protein packet.
