Strawberry and Vanilla Chia Seed Bowls

I really love yogurt, but yogurt doesn’t like me. Before I knew that, I was dealing with constant breakouts and I couldn’t really understand why. Since I learned how to make chia seed pudding I haven’t missed yogurt at all.

Chia seeds are a great source of healthy fat and fiber which is beneficial for your whole body, but especially for your digestive system.

Even though sometimes I miss yogurt, I like this chia pudding better. It’s tastier, better for my health and my skin and I love that I can make it fresh at home. My kids also love it so that’s always a win-win! I make it for them with fresh almond milk and they love to have berries on top.

I hope that you find it to be delicious too!

Strawberry and Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Servings 4
Chef Erica Jones

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp. raw chia seeds
  • 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • Sea salt
  • Protein powder of your choice (optional)
  • Sliced strawberries

STEPS

  1. Put the chia seeds in a bowl and add the almond milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup and sea salt.

  2. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. (I almost always do this overnight so that I have it ready for breakfast the next day).

  3. To serve, give the pudding a stir. Sometimes the chia seeds settle to the bottom and the need to be mixed to take on that pudding type texture.

RECIPE NOTES

Scoop some of the pudding into a serving bowl and mix in a scoop of your favorite protein powder if you want some extra nutrient density. Top with sliced strawberries and dig in!
