Chia Seed Pudding with Strawberries & Peaches - Vegan + GF

Chia seed pudding is so easy to prepare, and it's bursting with nutrients like calcium, iron, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. When chia seeds are soaked in liquid, they expand and develop a gel-like texture, similar to tapioca pudding. It only requires several hours of refrigeration to form. Combine the chia pudding with fresh fruit and homemade granola and it makes a healthy little treat.

Chia Pudding with Strawberries & Peaches (vegan)

(serves 1)

1 cup plant milk (I used almond milk)

4 Tablespoons chia seeds

2 tsp agave nectar or maple syrup

1/2 cup diced strawberries

1/2 cup diced peaches

Granola (optional)

In a small mason jar combine the plant milk, chia seeds, and agave. Stir well then screw on the lid tightly and refrigerate. After about 20 minutes shake it (or stir it) so that the chia seeds get more dispersed. Then refrigerate again for about another hour or so. During this time the chia seeds will expand and form a pudding like consistency. Serve the chia pudding with fresh fruit like strawberries and peaches. I also love fresh mango with this recipe. Another optional topping is homemade granola which I have a fantastic recipe here that would go great with this.
