If you are having this strawberry chia pudding for breakfast, it is advised to prepare the chia mixture in advance, probably a night before. This is to let it stiffen since it takes on a kind of jelly-like layer when moisture is added to it and gives them a nice creamy texture.
Hence, the mixture should set in the refrigerator for at least an hour before use. Check out the super simple recipe of strawberry chia pudding here:
1½ cup oatmilk
1½ cup frozen strawberries
⅓ cup chia seeds
1 tbsp agave syrup
½ tsp vanilla powder (pure vanilla)
Mix together all of the ingredients in a blender until combined. Pour in to jars and let sit for about 20 min. Serve with toppings of choice. Enjoy!
