Strawberry Almond Chia Seed Pudding

In my quest to eat healthy with less refined sugar, I've recently discovered chia seed pudding. Chia seeds are high in fiber, protein and healthy omega-3 fats, to name a few. Take a look at this interesting article by the Huffington Post if you're not super familiar with these tiny super-food seeds. Chia seed pudding can be made with any type of milk. Personally, I've tried it with regular 2% dairy milk and homemade almond milk. The almond milk received the winning votes from both me and the Hubs. The pudding has a similar texture to tapioca pearls but in my opinion the chia seeds are far tastier.

For a different twist try these various flavors and fruits

Mix-Ins- Blueberries, Raspberries, Mango, Pineapple or Blackberries,
Milk- Almond, Soy, Dairy or Coconut
Toppings- Fresh fruit, granola, minced mint leaves, dark chocolate, walnuts, or pecans

Strawberry Almond Chia Seed Pudding

Yield- 1 Serving

1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup diced strawberries (plus 1/4 cup to garnish at end)

Combine chia seeds, milk, honey and vanilla in a small cup or 1/2 pint Mason jar. Mix thoroughly and stir in the diced strawberries. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight. Serve with additional strawberries on top of pudding.

Stir in the strawberries
Ready to set in the fridge
