Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding

Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding


4-6 Servings
16 oz fresh strawberries, hulled
1 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
1/4 cup grade B maple syrup
1 vanilla bean, scraped
3/4 tsp finely grated lime zest
1/2 cup chia seeds

Place the strawberries, coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla and lime zest in a blender and blend until smooth. Place the chia seeds in a large bowl, pour the strawberry mixture on top, and whisk thoroughly. Let stand for 10 minutes and whisk again. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 3 days. Stir the pudding before serving. The longer it sits, the thicker the pudding will become; if you find that it is too thick, whisk in a little water (or coconut water, if you have some on hand). Spoon into individual cups or bowls and garnish.
Dress it up with coconut flakes, cacao nibs or nuts
