Strawberry Chia Pudding {Gluten Free & Paleo}

Strawberry Chia Pudding {Gluten Free & Paleo}

Confession time: I just recently started enjoying chia seeds. I know, I know, chia seeds are amazing, they are powerful and just so dang good for you–basically every health nut’s dream seed. So then why did it take me so long to jump on the bandwagon? Well, besides the fact that I am huge klutz and chia seeds always seem to find their way into every nook and cranny in my kitchen, I once had an epic ‘chia baking fail’ and it’s haunted me ever since.

Earlier this week I was struck with a random act of  courage while cleaning out my pantry I found two containers of chia seeds hiding in the way back. I dusted them off and decided I would give it go–starting off with the simplest of ‘chia seed’ recipes of course, Chia Pudding!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Protein Popsicles

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Protein Popsicles

 As much as I love baking, I also really love easy, no brainer recipes–especially if it consists of me not having to turn on the oven in this valley heat. I saw the “pudding pops” on the back of the instant pudding box and I knew it would be my next popsicle venture.

If you aren’t into the artificial sweeteners then stick with the full sugar/fat instant pudding mix.
