Servings 1 servings


  • 3 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup almond milk/coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup of strawberries mashed fresh or frozen, plus more for garnish
  • Mint leaves for garnish


  • To your mashed/pureed strawberries add 1 tsp of lemon juice and mix to incorporate. Set aside.
  • Mix chia seeds, maple syrup, vanilla, and milk in a small bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic food wrap and leave it at room temperature to thicken, for about 1 hour.
  • Once it has thickened, stir together again, and add a little bit more milk if needed.
  • Reserve half of the chia seed mixture.
  • In a separate bowl mix the rest of the chia seed mixture with half of the strawberry puree.
  • Start layering the pudding.
  • In a tall glass place chia seed/strawberry puree mixture on the bottom.
  • Then on top of that add reserved plain chia seed mixture.
  • Pour in plain strawberry puree on top.
  • Garnish with mint leaves or freshly cut strawberries.
  • Store chia pudding refrigerated in an airtight container or in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Store without fruits for about 1 week. If stored with fruits consume the same day or the next day.


  • Don’t have maple syrup? Feel free to swap for honey.
  • Chia seeds don’t have any taste to them on their own and take on the flavor of the liquid it is in. In this case, your chia pudding will taste like almond and vanilla thanks to the almond milk and vanilla extract.
  • I suggest using real vanilla extract and not artificial since you aren’t cooking this recipe and you’ll taste the extract.
  • You can easily scale this recipe up to multiple servings.
  • If you don’t like the texture of chia seeds, you can add everything to a blender and blend it up.
