THIS GOURM-EH STRAWBERRY MAPLE CHIA PUDDING IS THE PERFECT DESSERT FOR CANADA DAY (AND PRETTY MUCH ANY OTHER DAY)

THIS GOURM-EH STRAWBERRY MAPLE CHIA PUDDING IS THE PERFECT DESSERT FOR CANADA DAY (AND PRETTY MUCH ANY OTHER DAY)

No-bake, no-stress. This light, creamy, fresh dessert is very simple, requiring only 8 ingredients and 15 minutes prep time (plus chilling)

This chia pudding is delicious on its own—and even better when layered with home made strawberry compote. The only hard part of making this Strawberry Maple Chia Pudding is waiting six hours for the chia seeds to thicken, chill, and soak up the maple-almond-coconut liquid. 


We love chia seeds (and that's why we add them to our products) because: 

  • they absorb 10 times their weight and water and turn just about anything they’re added to into a magical pudding
  • they are rich in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, fiber, protein, and calcium (just to name a few)

 

You are going to love this chia pudding.

It's: 

〰 Creamy
〰 Maple infused 
〰 Refreshing
〰 Berry-packed
〰 Perfectly sweet
〰 Healthy
〰 Satisfying
〰 Sooo delicious

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS

Compote

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries 
  • 4 TBSPs water  
  • 2 TBSPs maple syrup 
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds 


Chia Pudding

  • 1 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk 
  • 1 TSP vanilla (optional)
  • 2 TBSPs maple syrup 
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds

 

Topping

 

 

PREPARATION

1. Add almond and coconut milk to a bowl, along with vanilla (optional) and maple syrup. Whisk to fully combine. Taste and adjust flavors as needed, adding more maple syrup for sweetness. Cover and set in the fridge to begin chilling for at least six hours (preferably overnight).

2. To a small skillet, add the strawberries and water. Warm over medium-high heat until bubbling. Then lower heat to medium and cook for 2 minutes – stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add maple syrup and chia seeds. Stir to combine. Cover and set in the refrigerator to chill.

3. To make the topping, chop the walnuts, crispbreads and mix them well with sugar. Transfer to a pan and toast for one minute over medium-high heat. 

4. To serve, alternate layering a few spoonfuls of compote and chia pudding in a small ramekin or 8-oz. glass. Drizzle with maple syrup and top with fresh strawberries and  walnut crispbread topping. Will keep covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

 

DO AHEAD: Chia pudding can be made 5 days ahead. Keep chilled.

🥫🍅🥑 December Is a Perf Month For This Hearty Sweet Potato Chili With Red Beans And Lots of Fritos

Quick, filling and made mostly of pantry ingredients, this chili/tortilla soup mash-up is calling your name. (Shhh. Listen closely.) Garnish it with the toppings of your choice: we like avocado, vegan sour cream, and chopped cilantro, but you can add shredded cheeze, pickled or fresh jalapeños, and/or sliced scallions or radishes. 

You can use any tortilla chips you like (we recommend going with Corn Quinoa crackers)—they add body and flavor to the soup itself and go on top for extra oomph. You could also fry or bake your own stale tortillas, cut into strips.
