Roasted Strawberry Chia Pudding! This pudding is not your typical chia pudding. Two pounds of fresh strawberries are roasted with wildflower honey, which gives the fruit a rich and concentrated flavor. The fruit is puréed and then mixed with coconut milk, vanilla, a dash of sea salt and chia seeds. Once the pudding has set, just top it with your favorite fresh berries and go. So the next time you have an overabundance of strawberries, give this roasted chia pudding a try. It’s perfection!
This chia pudding only takes about 30 minutes to make, and contains just 6 simple ingredients. And, since the strawberries will be roasted, the flavors are robust. Everyone will think, based upon the taste, that this took hours to put together. In my book, that is a huge win!
Ingredients Needed For This Roasted Strawberry Chia Pudding:
- Strawberries – Only use fresh for this recipe. Also, I use a full 2 pounds. That amount may seem like a lot, but in all actuality you need that much to get that intense strawberry flavor to come through.
- Honey – My go to is Beeyond The Hive Honey. Always!
- Coconut Milk – I like to use full fat, unsweetened coconut milk, because it is a fantastic dairy-free alternative. (Note: For those that don’t like coconut, you can’t taste it once it is all mixed together).
- Vanilla Extract – This will enhance all the other flavors.
- Salt – You need some salt for this recipe, because it balances out the sweetness from the fruit and honey.
- Chia Seeds – I love to use the brand Badia or this one by Navitas as well. Both are so good! FYI: The longer the chia seeds have time to set the more time they have to open up and soften. That’s why I like to prepare a batch the night before I want it.
- Toppings – I like to top my pudding with some fruit and cacao nibs. That is it! Don’t get too fancy because you don’t want to mask the beautiful flavor of the pudding itself.
