She packs in SO many nutrients, like Omega 3’s, protein, fiber, manganese, calcium, and antioxidants, that will keep you feeling full and energized!

Why chia seed pudding is SO healthy 

If you’ve been sleeping on one of my favorite superfood ingredients, chia seeds, because of their interesting texture or tastelessness, this Strawberries and Cream Chia Pudding recipe is lives up to the superfood’s hype. Paired with Vitamin C-rich strawberries, which boost collagen production and immunity, and antiviral, antibacterial, fat-burning coconut milk, you’ve got yourself a summer health and beauty elixir. Here’s the science on chia seeds: 

  • Chia seeds have antioxidants that will make your skin glow.
  • You can get 20% of the recommended daily calcium amount from 2 tablespoons of chia seeds 
  • Chia seeds are complete proteins and have all nine essential amino acids the body needs from food sources
  • They’re so heart healthy and packed with the omega-3 fatty acids and alpha-linolenic acids (ALA) which have been shown to benefit cardiovascular health.
  • They regulate the “hunger hormone“, so you can feel more full and regulate your appetite!
  • They contain almost 40% fiber, which makes them one of the most fiber-rich foods in the world – AKA you’ll be full well-through lunch time. 
  • Chia seeds sooth the gut with a gelatinous coating and scrub away waste from the intestinal tract.

This strawberry chia pudding is totally kid-friendly!

Did you know research shows that kids are WAY more likely to eat something if it’s PINK? This Strawberries and Cream Chia Seed Pudding is not only nourishing and packed with nutrients for growing kids but… it’s VERY pink, very delicious, and very fun to eat! One way to get your kids super excited for their pink pudding is by having them customize their toppings. Here are a few, fun garnishes I think kids would enjoy!

  • Add extra fruit: this chia pudding would be so good with sliced bananas in addition to the sliced strawberries.
  • Drizzle it: add a dollop of drizzly peanut butter, almond butter, or sunflower seed butter to make it even creamier!  
  • For the sweet tooth: adding a spoonful of mini white chocolate chips or dairy-free chocolate chips to make this more like healthy dessert-for-breakfast!

    Such a pretty recipe!
    This has been pinned to Pinterest! Using the dates to sweeten is a fantastic idea for a no-sugar-added breakfast. The date sweetens with a sort of ‘caramel-ey tone’, which gets along with the flavor of the berries. Too many things these days are just too sweet, or relying on refined sugar. You can also use frozen strawberries here too, if you let them sit/thaw in the fridge over night in the mixture while the chia seeds are gelling. This recipe is too good to be restricted to just strawberry season.
