Who else loves a big glass or Horchata? it’s my guilty pleasure when we have Mexican food . . . which is often around my house. This sugar-free Strawberry Horchata Chia Pudding is completely guilt-free and tastes amazing. I love to enjoy this as a quick breakfast, easy snack or late-night treat.
If you have never made chia pudding, that’s going to change right here. Chia pudding is super easy to make and is loaded with fantastic nutrients. I love using chia pudding as a way for my kids to get some extra fiber in their diet. Sometimes, we’ll even just mix a few Tablespoons of chia seeds into juice in the morning for my kids.
The texture of chia seeds once they soak up some liquid is fun. They become almost like gelatin and they give this easy pudding it’s thickness.
I make chia pudding the night before and it is ready to go the next morning. If you don’t have time the night before, you’ll need at least 2-3 hours for this to set up.
Sugar-Free Strawberry Horchata Chia Pudding Ingredients

- Optional: 1 Tbsp. maple syrup

Sugar-Free Strawberry Horchata Chia Pudding Instructions
This really could not be easier to make. In a large mason jar, combine the chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Mix well.
Gently stir in your sliced strawberries, or set aside to top your chia pudding with just before serving.
Seal container and place in the fridge overnight or for 2-3 hours for the pudding to set up. It is ready to eat when the chia seeds have absorbed quite a bit of the liquid and the pudding has thickened up.
These are delicious anytime of the day. I usually make a few at once and eat them throughout the week. Leave the strawberries out if you won’t be eating it the next day. It’s easy to top these with fruit just before eating.
