I’m going to show you how to make the most tasty berry chia pudding. It’s creamy and fruity, with just the right amount of sweetness.
The flavors of this chia pudding are inspired by the classic combination of strawberries and cream. But unlike the original, this version is vegan and made from only 6 healthy ingredients.
How To Make Chia Seed Pudding
It starts with creating a luscious strawberry syrup which will do double duty: we’ll fold the berry sauce into the chia pudding and use it as a decadent fruit on the bottom treat.
Making the strawberry sauce only takes a minute to whip up in the blender and can be eaten with virtually any sweet treat. From pancakes to French toast, to smoothie bowls and ice cream. You’ll understand once you try it!
The chia pudding comes together by combining part berry sauce with chia seeds, agave and reduced fat coconut milk. If you prefer another type of vegan milk, use that instead.
After 4 hours in the fridge, the pudding is ready to eat. To construct the berry chia pudding, spoon some strawberry sauce on the bottom of a bowl and then add the chia pudding on top.
Chia pudding pairs well with a variety of toppings. Sprinkle with fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, granola and an extra spoonful of berry sauce for good measure.
