1 sachet Real Ketones Prime D+ Orange Blast

The how:

Method

  1. Begin by adding the dry ingredients into a heat proof large bowl.
  2. Combine well.
  3. Heat 300ml of unsweetened almond milk or water in a jug.
  4. Slowly pour in the warm almond milk/water into the bowl of dry ingredients ensuring you continue to stir to avoid lumps from forming.
  5. The mixture will look very runny to begin with but continue to stir and allow it for 10 min.
  6. Stir again as the chia, flax and psyllium absorb the liquid. The mixture will become increasingly thick the longer you leave it.
  7. Add additional unsweetened almond milk/water as desired to create your preferred consistency.
  8. Taste the pudding and add extra cinnamon and/or Good Stevia Vanilla Flavour drops if desired.

Your pudding can be enjoyed hot or cold. To warm simply microwave or heat gentle on the stove in a saucepan.

Pour into two bowls and sprinkle your toppings of choice.  You can experiment with different toppings such as berries, nuts, seeds, grated sugar free chocolate or crumble your favourite Real Ketones protein bar on top for a more indulgent pudding.

*Real Ketone top tip – grind your chia seeds in a coffee bean grinder before adding to the mixture. This makes a smoother consistency and research has found that grinding increases the digestibility and uptake of antioxidants, protein and omega-3 fats.
