These chia strawberry pudding popsicles are just what I need to ward off the soaring Texas temperatures. Phew! It’s not even summer officially and 90’shave become the norm around here!

Chia Strawberry Pudding Popsicles

The heat aside, I had a pretty good weekend. I just got onto the twitter bandwagon and my favorite Indian chef, (whose show I grew up watching) re-tweeted my tweet!! Woah! (The recipe was this one if you are interested in checking out). This is also the same feeling that inspires me when one of you mails me/leaves comment behind/messages on FB about how my recipe turned out and how it made you and your family happy :)

Strawberry Kulfi

Chia Pudding

Back to Chia Strawberry Pudding popsicles, chia seeds is considered a superfood with its numerous health benefits. I like following this superfood trend. Not only does it help me innovate, it keeps me healthy! For any of you who are wondering, yes, chia seeds are very much like the basil seeds (falooda). They are both cousins and can be used interchangeably since they lend the same texture to a recipe and entail their own share of health benefits.

Chia Strawberry Pudding Popsicles

While a no-cook chia pudding for breakfast (just the seeds in some almond/coconut milk) has become quite popular among foodies, this recipe is different in a way that it combines the creamy Indian kulfi like texture with the latest chia pudding trend. Add in, a bounty of fresh fruits and you’ve got yourself a true summer delight!

Here’s the recipe for

Chia Strawberry Pudding Popsicles

CHIA STRAWBERRY PUDDING POPSICLES

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 6 hours, 15 minutes

Serves: 8-10 popsicles depending on the size of molds

CHIA STRAWBERRY PUDDING POPSICLES

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 tbsp chia seeds (or falooda/basil seeds)
  • 1 + 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp corn flour
  • 3/4 cup chopped strawberries

Directions

  1. Whisk 2 tbsp corn flour in 1/2 cup milk. Make sure you make a smooth paste and set aside.
  2. Mix the remaining milk and the condensed milk in a pot. Set it on the stove with medium-low heat.
  3. Keep stirring to make sure that there is no accumulation of milk at the bottom of the pan (which leads to burning).
  4. Once the mixture begins to simmer, it is time to add the corn flour-milk mixture.
  5. Whisk the mixture once again before adding because the corn flour tends to settle down.
  6. Pour the mixture into the pot of boiling milk in a steady stream with continuous stirring to avoid the formation of lumps.
  7. Continue stirring and the pudding/custard will begin to thicken as it simmers.
  8. Once the pudding mixture attains the thickness of a pancake batter (dosa batter), turn the heat off.
  9. Let the mixture cool down to a warm temperature. Add the chopped strawberries and chia seeds.
  10. Mix well and let it cool down to room temperature. Add the pudding into the popsicles/kulfi molds.
  11. Place them in the freezer. After about 30-45 min, stick in the Popsicle sticks into them.
  12. Place them back in the freezer and let them set overnight or at least 5 hrs.
  13. Run the molds under water for easy release of the popsicle/kulfi. Enjoy your summer afternoons with creamy super food popsicles.

My Take:

I love biting into chunks of strawberries while enjoying my popsicle but you could add strawberry puree. Make sure your pudding mixture is thicker for this. Add another 1/4 tbsp of corn flour and let it simmer for longer before you start the cooling process.

  7. Hi Prash, How sweet is this on a scale of 1-10? I’d like to go easy on the sweetness quotient..so if I reduce the amount of condensed milk, will it affect the recipe?

    • Hi Megha! You could say a 6 or 7. Reducing condensed milk will make it lighter (more posicle like than Indian kulfi). Although, then you might need to add sugar or honey.

      • I made them and they were yummyummyummyummyumm. Thank you so much for sharing there wonderful recipes :) I didn’t reduce the quantity of the condensed milk.. The sweetness turned out just right :)
