My favorite breakfast idea is with chia seed pudding, because it's so easy to meal prep. I make this healthy strawberry banana chia seed pudding a few times a month, because the flavors of strawberry plus banana are perfect in a pudding recipe especially for summer.
Ingredients for Chia Pudding with Strawberry & Banana
Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are high in protein and loaded with fiber. Feel free to use either black or white chia seeds. Both work the same.
Coconut Milk: Unsweetened coconut milk is my plant-based milk of choice.
Strawberries: Of course, you need strawberries in a strawberry flavored pudding recipe. I like to use fresh, but frozen will work if you are preparing them in advance. This allows enough time for the strawberries to thaw.
Bananas: I often find that you can omit the maple syrup, because the bananas add a natural sweetness to this chia pudding recipe.
Maple Syrup: This is my go-to sweetener of choice. You can also swap it for your favorite sweetener, like honey.
How Long Will Chia Seed Pudding Last if Meal Prepped?
I like to meal prep batches of chia seed pudding recipes in advance. This strawberry chia pudding recipe will last a good 5 days in the refrigerator. You can also optionally freeze your chia pudding recipe.
How to Store Chia Pudding
Simply store your strawberry chia seed pudding inside an airtight container or mason jars, and they are easy to grab and go. You can either make a big batch of chia pudding or make individual serving sizes in cute little jars, like a mason jar.
Strawberry Banana Chia Seed Pudding Recipe
- 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
- 2 tablespoons Chia Seeds
- 1 cup Strawberries
- 1 cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk
- 1 Banana
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together until the mixture is well combined. Cover chia pudding mixture and chill in the refrigerator until the chia turns into a pudding consistency, about 20 minutes to one hour. Best overnight.
- You can eat this pudding just like this, or if you desire a smooth consistency, add all ingredients to a blender and process until super smooth. Chill in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
- Top with homemade granola if you want a heartier breakfast option.
- For a pretty presentation, try dividing the mixture before blending and reserve one mixture without blending. Layer each mixture for an added variation in texture. Enjoy.
