Strawberries are finally in season and I’m taking full advantage of their price! Not only are they cheap but they’re actually sweet and you can make so many tasty things with strawberries. Today I’ll be sharing with you this incredibly delicious Strawberry Tahini Chia Pudding recipe that has officially become a part of my spring meal prep.

It starts by adding in fresh or frozen (thawed) strawberries, tahini, soy milk, tofu, maple syrup, vanilla and of course, chia seeds. Not only does the addition of tofu make chia pudding so much more creamier, it also boosts up the protein content!

Blend everything up except the chia seeds until smooth. Then add in the chia seeds and pulse it through, just to mix everything up evenly.

Let that sit for 2 hours (or preferably overnight) and you get this creamy, fruity, nutty and super tasty chia pudding. It’s so refreshing and light, but also filling thanks to the fat from the tahini and protein from the tofu and chia seeds.

I love topping this Strawberry Tahini Chia Pudding with all sorts of things, here are some of my fav!

  1. fresh fruit

  2. more tahini (or other butters)

Tips and Tricks to making

  • I have found that frozen strawberries yield a stronger strawberry flavour. Since it’s strawberry season, fresh strawberries are super cheap so I freeze some for this chia pudding! You can also just blend up fresh strawberries but the strawberry flavour is much lighter.

  • This chia pudding thickens as it sits in the fridge, so if it becomes too thick it can be thinned out by adding in a little more soy milk (or milk of your choice).

  • Please, please buy good tahini. What is good tahini? It should be runny, smooth and beautiful. How to test? Shake the bottle and if it sounds liquid-y, most times it’s good. My favourite is this one, by Roland!
