Peanut Butter & Jelly Chia Pudding

Peanut Butter & Jelly Chia Pudding

PB + J pancakes , smoothies , and chia pudding! Oh my!

It’s hard to resist that whole salty-sweet combination, isn’t it? And there are endless ways to reinterpret and modernize the classic pb + j sandwich.

This particular variation infuses thick chia pudding with peanutty goodness and nestles it between rippled layers of raw strawberry chia jelly. The recipe calls for just 7 ingredients and only requires about 10-15 minutes of active kitchen time. As usual, the hardest part about making chia pudding is garnering the patience to endure a few hours of wait time as it thickens. And just as a watched pot never boils, a watched chia pudding never thickens.
