Strawberry chia jam and peanut butter pudding are layered one after the other in this vegan peanut butter & jelly chia pudding. I love the way the rich, peanut butter layer is balanced by the subtly sweet + tart strawberry jelly layer. This chia pudding is a bit more decadent than some of the others I've shared, so I usually have it for dessert, but it could also make for the perfect energizing breakfast before an active day. Let's be honest: it's hard to put parameters around the enjoyment of a PB & J. PB & J does as it pleases.
*If you don't have a high-powered blender, I recommend soaking the dates in warm water for 1 hour before blending.
*To make this nut-free, substitute sunflower seed butter for the peanut butter and use a nut-free milk alternative (e.g., rice, hemp, etc).
*To make this paleo, substitute sunflower seed butter for the peanut butter.
