If you have never tried chia seed pudding before, then you are in for a real treat with this delicious, raw vegan recipe!
Chia seed pudding has the consistency of tapioca pudding without all the extra sugar. Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3s and provide 148% RDA of per serving of this recipe.
Chia seeds are also a good source of calcium (9% RDA per serving of pudding), phosphorus, manganese and dietary fiber.
Chia seeds themselves aren’t very flavorful so you can make just about any recipe with them. This recipe calls for strawberries, which are accented by a hint of vanilla.
This recipe makes four servings.
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds chia seeds (do not pre-soak)
- 1/2 cup homemade almond milk
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 6 medium strawberries
In a blender, blend the strawberries, almond milk and vanilla together. Pour over the chia seeds and stir. Let sit for about 2 minutes and stir again. Cover the pudding and let it sit for another 20 to 23 minutes. Once the pudding is thick, stir once more and serve immediately.
I don’t recommend letting this pudding sit in the refrigerator to chill. Instead, be sure your strawberries and almond milk is chilled in the refrigerator before you make this recipe.
