Blueberry Chia Pudding Recipe From Brendan Brazier

Thrive Foods: Breakfast Blueberry Chia Pudding

Professional triathlete Brendan Brazier is the creator of the Thrive Diet, a vegan, mostly raw nutritional plan geared toward athletes looking to improve both performance and recovery. Of all the recipes in Brendan's new book, Thrive Foods: 200 Plant-Based Recipes for Peak Health ($13), Brendan says that this blueberry chia pudding is one of his favorites.

I tried the blueberry chia pudding this morning and was pleasantly surprised. The mixture of chia, cashews, and dates creates a taste similar to breakfast grains. With blueberries, the pudding requires no additional sweetener and is the perfect breakfast fuel. Chia seeds are high in omega-3s, calcium, and fiber, and cashews will give you protein and a deliciously satisfying creaminess.
