Low Carb Strawberries and Cream Chia Pudding Recipe
If you are looking for an alternative to the tradtional keto breakfast of bacon and eggs, then this keto chia pudding is your solution. Chia pudding is easy to make and you can make up a lot of it to enjoy all week long. Flavored with fresh strawberries, this chia pudding takes on a strawberries & cream flavor once it’s combined with the heavy cream. This chia pudding is lightly sweetened, so you can enjoy this keto recipe as a breakfast or a dessert.
Chia seeds are the key ingredient to thicken this low carb pudding. Chia seeds absorb water up to 12 times their weight! Soaked chia seeds slow down digestion which means they make make you feel full longer. They are also loaded with fiber.
The macros in this recipe are calculated based on using heavy cream as the liquid; however, you can substitute with other milk options. Nut milks like almond, coconut, cashew and macadamia work well in this keto breakfast recipe too. My favorite nut milk to use is macadmaia nut milk by Milkadamia. It is loaded with fat is and is very low in carbohydrates.

The easiest way to make keto chia pudding is to add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. This breaks open the chia seeds so they can absorb liquid right away forming a pudding consistency right away. If you don’t have a blender, a food processor would work. If you don’t have either of those appliances, you can combine all of your ingredients to a bowl and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. Your keto pudding won’t be as smooth and your strawberries will be chunky, but it will still taste amazing!
