Strawberry & Chocolate Layered Chia Pudding

Strawberry picking is such a fun family experience. The low-growing strawberry bush is ideal for small fingers and little ones to harvest the sweet, juicy berries. Wherever you get your strawberries, don’t let spring pass without enjoying these tasty red gems, here layered with a decadent chocolate pudding and reminiscent of chocolate-covered strawberries. Blending the chia seeds with the milk breaks them up and speeds the setting time.

1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

3 tablespoons maple syrup

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ cup chia seeds

5-7 large fresh strawberries, sliced

  1. Add the milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla, and chia seeds to a blender and blend. Pour into a small bowl and chill for about 10-15 minutes to set.
  2. After the pudding is set, layer the strawberries and pudding into two glass serving containers, starting and ending with the berries.
