Strawberry and Vanilla Chia Pudding

strawberry and vanilla chia pudding

As Wimbledon is in full swing (pardon the pun!), it seemed only fitting that I share a recipe to celebrate summer strawberries. This chia pudding is the perfect light summer breakfast on hot days but of course, can also be enjoyed as a snack or dessert. It combines fresh strawberries with decadent vanilla chia pudding and a sweet strawberry compote- it's a match made in heaven!

Three great health benefits: boosts immunity, good source of antioxidants, good source of fibre

Serves 1

For the chia pudding:
2 tbsp chia seeds
6 tbsp almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the strawberry compote (a great way to use up strawberries which are past their best!):
5 strawberries
2 tbsp water
1-2 tsp maple syrup, to taste

2 strawberries for decoration, sliced lengthways into three

1) Make the chia pudding by combining the chia seeds with almond milk and vanilla. Stir well and refrigerate for at least half an hour, or overnight, until into a gel. Stir.
2) For the strawberry compote, boil together the 5 strawberries with water and maple syrup. You may wish to mash the mixture a little. Boil until reduced and the remaining liquid is thickened. Set aside to cool.
3) To serve, layer the chia pudding on top of the strawberry compote and decorate as desired with the sliced strawberries. Enjoy immediately.
