Protein PB Chocolate Chia Pudding: Tara Tested, Tara Approved! If you enjoy chocolate, you will love this pudding. It is SO chocolatey. The chia seeds plump up to create the pudding consistency. Bonus perk of this recipe is that it is very very low in sugar with only 1 g per serving. I couldn’t taste the peanut butter flavor from the PB2 very much so you may want to try adding more or evening topping your pudding with a little dollop of natural peanut butter. Enjoy!
