What are chia seeds?

Chia seeds are small edible seeds that are derived from Salvia hispanica plant that are packed with an abundance of health benefits.

These little seeds are high in fibre, packed with Omega-3s and can be added to a variety of different recipes from energy bars, to salads and can even be baked into buckwheat bread!

Since chia seeds are super absorbent, one of the most popular ways to use chia seeds is to turn them into chia pudding, and today we’re making a strawberry chia pudding!

Strawberry chia seed pudding ingredients

  • Chia seeds: you may find chia seeds that are black or white at your grocery store. Both are the same (and taste the same) so you can use either!
  • Strawberries: use fresh or frozen strawberries in this recipe. Fresh seasonal strawberries will taste best!
  • Plant-based milk: I use half coconut milk and half almond milk in this recipe for a creamy chia pudding that doesn’t taste too much like coconut chia pudding.
  • Maple syrup: to sweeten. You can substitute with honey or agave syrup.
  • Vanilla extract: Just a touch for flavour.

How to make strawberry chia pudding

Step 1

Add the strawberries, coconut milk, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract to a blender.

Step 2

Blend until completely smooth, then add the strawberry milk to a mixing bowl or large jar with the chia seeds.

Step 3

Whisk the chia seeds and strawberry milk together until the mixture starts to become viscous. Then cover the bowl or jar and place it in the fridge for at least 4 hours to set, or overnight. When the chia pudding thickens it should look like the second photo below.

Recipe variations

Make it keto: swap out the maple syrup for a sugar-free sweetener and use all full-fat coconut milk instead of almond milk.

Make it high protein: add a scoop of your favourite protein powder to this strawberry chia pudding.

Use any berries: don’t have strawberries? You can use blueberries, raspberries or blackberries!

How to store chia pudding

Strawberry chia pudding should be stored in the fridge in an airtight container or jar for up to 3 days. You can also store this chia pudding in individual jars to take on the go with you for breakfast.

Expert tips for making strawberry chia pudding

  • Use good quality strawberries. This chia pudding will only taste as good as the strawberries you use! If you use bland, watery strawberries in this recipe, they won’t add much flavour.
  • If your chia pudding is too thin, add an extra tablespoon of chia seeds to the pudding and mix together. Let it sit for an hour in the fridge.
  • If your chia pudding is too thick, add an extra splash of almond milk until it reaches your desired texture.
  • Add any toppings you love. I like to top my chia pudding off with yogurt, strawberries, coconut flakes, hemp seeds, granola and cacao nibs!
  • Try blending the pudding. Don’t like the texture of chia seeds? Try adding the chia seeds to the blender with the strawberry milk and blend until smooth. This will create a smoother textured chia seed pudding.
