Ingredients

To make your pretty and delicious chia pudding, you will need these simple ingredients:

  • Greek yogurt: I have used low-fat Greek yogurt here, but you can also use full-cream yogurt. You may also use a combination of yogurt and milk in a 1:1 ratio.

  • Chia seeds: The main ingredient of this pudding recipe. For best results, use good quality organic chia seeds.

  • Sweetener: I have sweetened this pudding with maple syrup, but you can also use honey or agave nectar.

  • Strawberries: To create a strawberry-flavored yogurt, I have used fresh strawberries. You can also use frozen strawberries in this recipe.

  • Optional toppings: To give this pudding a lovely texture, color, and taste, I have topped it with strawberries, extra maple syrup, sliced kiwi, sunflower seeds, and chopped walnuts. You can skip toppings or top it with whatever you have on hand.

How to Make Greek Yogurt Chia Seed Pudding

Making this chia pudding is very simple and requires only five minutes of your time.

Start by blending the yogurt, strawberries, and sweetener. Once blended, fold in the chia seeds and chill for at least 15 minutes. You can set it for up to four hours or overnight to let the chia seeds thicken the pudding.

That’s it. Top it with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
