Looking for more ways to enjoy fresh ripe strawberries? Look no further than this Strawberry Chia Pudding! It’s vegan, healthy, and sugar free!
I love strawberries!
In addition, I learned how to make a fabulous Strawberry Salsa from my friend Joni. It’s amazing on tacos or with chips.
And of course they are delicious in smoothies and icy cold beverages.
But with all my chia pudding recipes, I realized I didn’t make one starring this wonderful fruit!
Of course that had to change immediately!
Before we get to the recipe, I want to share a tip I learned recently on a visit to Tanaka Farms.
Don’t refrigerate your strawberries.
Did you get that?
Once again, don’t refrigerate your strawberries.
When you purchase them from the farm stand, they aren’t refrigerated, right?
So keep them fresh and flavorful by storing them unwashed on the kitchen counter until ready to eat.
I’m telling you, I could eat strawberries every day!
What’s your favorite way to enjoy strawberries?
Strawberry Chia Pudding makes a wonderful healthy breakfast, dessert, or snack.
You can use whatever type of non-dairy milk you like, such as almond or coconut. I prefer unsweetened organic soy milk.
I like to prepare the chia pudding in the evening to let it thicken in the refrigerator overnight. Then when I’m ready to eat it, I mix in some roughly chopped fresh strawberries.
This recipe makes one serving, but you can easily double or triple it to suit your needs.
Or for something different for breakfast, you can use this Strawberry Chia Pudding in place of the grape in Peanut Butter & Jelly Overnight Oats.
As you can imagine, I always have a supply of chia seeds in my kitchen!
I hope you enjoy this recipe. If you make it, please take a photo and share it with me on Instagram and use the hashtag #veggiessavetheday. I love seeing what’s cooking in your kitchen! Alternatively, you can post your photos on the Facebook page Veggies Save The Day.
