Papaya Boat Chia Pudding


I posted this picture of my post yoga breakfast on Instagram a few days ago and got a lot of positive feedback on it so I decided to share my recipe with everyone so you guys can make your own beautiful papaya creations at home! I made two different versions of this because when you cut a papaya in half you are left with two perfect papaya boats. I have posted my day 1 chia pudding and my day 2 one which is a little more tropical than day 1. I think the day 2 chia pudding compliments the papaya better than the cinnamon one but I want you guys to try them both and let me know which one you like better! I would also love to see pictures of your creations so please post them on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and tag me (@_FoodGlow [twitter], @aemassey4 )!

Day 1- Papaya Boat Chia Pudding:
1/2 ripe papaya
1/2 cup almond milk
3 Tbsp black chia seeds
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 scoop SunWarrior vanilla protein powder

Scoop out the seeds and a layer of the papaya flesh and discard. In a small bowl mix together the almond milk, chia seeds, oats, vanilla, cinnamon and protein powder. Place in the fridge and allow it to set for 15 min. While the chia pudding is setting prepare your toppings, slice half a banana into pieces, wash the blueberries and set out your almond butter. Once the chia pudding is set, pour into the center of the papaya and decorate with bananas, blueberries and almond butter.

Day 2- Papaya Boat Mango Chia Pudding
1/2 ripe papaya
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tbsp white chia seeds (can also use black)
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup frozen mango (thawed)
1 tsp maple syrup

Follow the same instructions for the day on papaya boat, and use the same toppings!
