Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding

Happy Tuesday, friends!

I have been up since around 1:30 am, which is ridiculous and stupid.  It's now ten-till five and I'm thinking that at this point I'll just stay up a little longer to get breakfast started for my older crew, then crawl back into bed in hopes of getting a little shut-eye until my little crew wakes up.

Here's one of the yummies I'm serving up for all my people this morning:

What a tasty, healthy, and quick breakfast (or snack) this is!

Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding


1 cup frozen or fresh strawberries
1 cup unsweetened vanilla-flavored almond milk
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons maple syrup and/or raw honey
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
pinch of kosher salt

Blend together all the above ingredients in blender until strawberries are fully pureed.  Pour into a bowl.

Then stir in:

1/4 cup chia seeds

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, give it another stir, then top with toasted almonds and a drizzle of maple syrup.

For some reason when I wake during the middle of the night cooking/baking never crosses my mind!

Your family is truly blessed! The strawberry thingy looks interesting!

I hope you are able to nap before the littles get up!

That was in my mind and Vicky just said it. :D
