Happy Friday! We all know how crazy the weekend can get, and in the middle of all these social events, we still got to find a way to stay healthy. Here’s my easy no bake protein bar recipe that is not only sweet and delicious, but its healthy too. Its full of protein so it will keep you full for a longer time and the best part is that you can feel free to make it your own and it doesn’t require any baking or culinary experience. Here’s what you’ll need:

🍓✨BERRY CHIA COCONUT DREAM✨🍓

This has to be one of my greatest inventions yet! I was searching for a way to spice up my breakfast routine of eggs, green smoothies and oats but something that wouldn’t leave me starving by 10am. It always leads me to making some poor eating choices like sada roti or a panini or something thats no good. Here’s what you’ll need for this dream:
Chia pudding tier:2015-05-19 10.48.17

– 1/2 c Chia seeds

– 1 c Coconut Milk (or milk of choice)

– 1 tsp honey

Smoothie tier:

– 1/2 c strawberries (frozen)

– 1/2 banana  (frozen)

– 1 c mixed berries (frozen)

– 2 c Coconut Milk

1. Mix Chia seeds, honey and milk and leave in fridge overnight.

2. Next day, blend berries, banana and milk together and pour on top of chia pudding.

This is very easy to make and the best part is you can substitute these ingredients for whatever you got at home. If you happen to give this a try, please tweet or send me a picture on Instagram with the #thatkhadineproject
