How can you make vegan strawberry chia pudding without a blender?
If you do not have a food processor or blender, use pureed strawberries and date puree or mashed bananas for a sweetener. Add all your ingredients to a large bowl, mix well, and freeze in the fridge.
Cover the bowl with a lid and keep in the fridge overnight or for at least 3-4 hours.
Remove from the fridge mix well, add some fruit toppings, and serve.
Is chia seeds pudding healthy?
Yes, absolutely. Chia seed pudding is healthy for you. It is rich in omega-three fatty acids, antioxidants, minerals, and fiber. When you soak chia seeds in water, it turns into a gel or forms a gelatinous texture. This is due to the high soluble fiber content it contains.
These nutrients and fiber help support the immune system, lower cholesterol, aid in weight loss, and help digestion. The high amounts of fiber in chia seeds help prevent constipation, promote regularity, and detox your body.

How long should you soak chia seeds?
It is good to soak the chia seeds in the fridge overnight or sit for at least four hours before eating them. Doing so gives them time to absorb enough water or liquid and form the gel’s right consistency.
If your chia pudding is not thickening, add more chia seeds to your pudding mixture, combine well and let it sit for a little longer.
