Strawberry Chia Pudding

Strawberries are one of the first fruits of the season, usually in June around most of British Columbia. Celebrate the gorgeous colour and sweetness by eating them fresh, on top of a creamy chia pudding. Chia seeds are full of soluble fibre which helps to form a pudding as they soak in milk. It makes a healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.
