Growing up we would find wild strawberries every so often growing next to our house and you would have thought we'd won the lottery with how excited we got. They were always stunningly sweet and we were lucky if a few made it inside before we gobbled them all up. But if we could show a little restraint, which we normally couldn't, we would be rewarded with delicious strawberries and fresh whipped cream. It was always a treat and is still my absolute favorite way to eat fresh berries.
This past weekend I scooped up some strawberries at the farmer's market but after a busy few days I noticed they were about to go bad and remembered my favorite strawberries and cream. Inspired by that, I decided to make a batch of strawberry and cream chia seed pudding using fresh strawberries, creamy almond milk, and vanilla extract. First I created a simple homemade strawberry milk and then just soaked the chia seeds in that overnight. In the morning I added a dollop of thick and creamy Greek yogurt on top as well as some fresh sliced berries. Delicious, healthy, and easy.

For a smoother, more mousse like pudding, blend the chia seeds as well.
