Easy Snack Recipes - Strawberry Protein Chia Pudding

What you need

  • ½ cup (100g) frozen strawberries
  • scant 1/2 cup (100ml) milk, dairy or coconut
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla whey
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • scant 1/3 cup (50g) chia seeds

What you need to do

Blitz the strawberries, milk, whey and maple syrup in a speed blender or food processor.

Add the chia seeds and mix well. Leave to thicken in the fridge for 10 mins, mixing 2-3 times, to ensure it thickens evenly. Serve straight away or store in a refrigerator.

Pro tip: if you leave the pudding in the fridge overnight, you might want to add some extra milk to it before serving as it will become thicker as the chia seeds absorb the liquid.

Easy Snack Recipes - Coconut Banana Millet Custard

What you need

  • 1/3 cup (75g) raw millet
  • 1 cup (240ml) coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp. of lemon juice

What you need to do

Before cooking the millet, rinse it thoroughly in hot water, then bring to the boil with 1/2 cup of coconut milk and 1/4 a cup of water. Simmer for about 15 mins, until the liquids are completely absorbed.

Place the soft groats in the blender or food processor, add the remaining coconut milk, honey, peeled banana and lemon juice. Mix for a perfectly smooth mousse (about 1-2 minutes of high-speed mixing).

To obtain a very smooth consistency, you might need to mix it for a longer period of time, so be patient.

Serve warm or cold.

Serving suggestions:

maple syrup, passion fruit, pomegranate seeds, mixed berries, jam.

Easy Snack Recipes - When Should you Not Snack

I’ll say it again, snacking is not bad.

You just need to choose healthy snacks that aren’t laden with fat and sugar.

But, if you find you’re getting hungry shortly after eating, then you really need to look at what your meals contain.

More protein, more fat, less sugar, will all help you to feel fuller for longer and reduce your need for snacks.
