🫐 Ingredients

  • Chia seeds: The base of this recipe, chia seeds are small seeds from the Salvia hispanica plant that form a gel-like consistency when mixed with liquids
  • Plant-based milk: The liquid that mixes with the seeds to make the pudding, we’re using plant-based creamy oat milk (but any milk will do)
  • Strawberries: The fruit star of this recipe, strawberries add a touch of tart and sweet
  • Nuts or seeds: For a crunch factor we’re adding your choice of nuts or seeds (I used pumpkin seeds in this recipe)
  • Flavorings: A touch of vanilla extract and maple syrup add a slightly warm and sweet flavor to the pudding
  • Recommended tools: small mixing bowls, small glasses or jars for single-servings of pudding

1️⃣ Step One: Blend strawberries

Add strawberries to a blender and blend until they become pureed.

Alternatively you can also place strawberries in a bowl and use a handheld immersion blender to puree.

Add strawberry puree, chia seeds, plant-based milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to a medium mixing bowl and stir to combine. Let sit 10 minutes, then stir again to mix well.

Then cover and place in the refrigerator for at least two hours to let the pudding thicken, ideally overnight.

🧊 How to store

  1. Refrigerator storage: Store in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days
  2. Freezer storage: It is possible to freeze chia pudding, but I recommend freezing in single servings. To freeze, add to airtight containers and freeze up to two month. To thaw, remove from freezer into refrigerator for 24 hours and then enjoy within 2-3 days.
