I am a big fan of chia puddings!
I love that they are super easy to make and you set them in the refrigerator overnight, while you are sleeping, ready for when you when you wake up.
They are the perfect, quick breakfast, especially if you find that you are in a rush to get ready and leave for work or drop the kids off at school. They also make a great dessert and this flavour combo is one of my favourites as well as this apple and walnut chia pudding and this blueberry and macadamia chia pudding.

HOW TO PREPARE
Making this chia pudding is really easy.
You process the strawberries, coconut cream, vanilla extract and rice malt syrup in your blender and then divide the mixture into your bowls or glasses. Then add the chia seeds and mix through the strawberry cream mixture.
Then leave in the refrigerator to set overnight.
The next morning, remove from the refrigerator add some fresh strawberries and enjoy.
Sweeteners - I have included rice malt syrup in my version, but you could easily swap it for honey or maple syrup if you wanted. You could also omit the sweetener altogether. Totally up to you and what your preference is.
Strawberries - You can also substitute the strawberries with other fruit to change it up. Mango, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, banana or a combination works really well too.

- Prepare strawberry mixture. Add the strawberries, coconut cream, rice malt syrup (if using) and vanilla extract to a blender and blend until smooth.
- Add chia seeds. Place the chia seeds in a large bowl and add the strawberries & cream mixture, mixing thoroughly until well combined. I recommend stirring the mixture thoroughly as the chia seeds can clump together.
