Strawberry Pink Chia Pudding

It’s funny how quickly I have fallen in love with chia pudding. Maybe it’s because chia pudding is so easy to make. Perhaps it’s because chia pudding is a tasty breakfast, dessert, or delicious snack option. Or, maybe it’s because chia is so nutritious. One thing I know for sure, a cup of Strawberry Pink Chia Pudding is certainly something to look forward too.

First, let’s talk about chia seeds. These tiny seeds are a member of the mint family and come from a flowering desert plant called Salvia hispanica. Chia seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acid and contain fiber, protein, and minerals. When you soak chia seeds in liquid, the seeds soften and resemble tapioca pudding; which is perfect for making Strawberry Pink Chia Pudding.

By now you know that every year my entire family looks forward to the strawberry season because my parents always have a row of juicy, red strawberries growing in their garden.

Not only do we enjoy eating whole, fresh strawberries, we also enjoy them in recipes such as Strawberry Spinach Salad, Strawberry Shortcake, Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles, and Strawberry Smoothies.

Strawberry Smoothies

Strawberry Pink Chia Pudding is a great treat and can be made with, or without, adding any additional sweetener. Now, for full disclosure… our homegrown strawberries naturally seem to be sweeter and juicier than any berries we have ever boughten in a store. Ours are also organic and have a much better, sweeter flavor than storebought strawberries. Hence, we usually leave out sweetener.

Personally, I like to make Strawberry Pink Chia Pudding before I go to bed so when I wake in the morning I can enjoy breakfast without any hassle. It’s also a great “grab-n-go” breakfast for mornings when I’m rushed for time. Occasionally, I add a few chopped walnuts or pecans for a little crunch factor and additional health benefits.
