Chia Greek Yogurt Pudding with Sliced Strawberries

Try this dessert at your next family party....it is different and will challenge your comfort zone but, in a good way. 

Chia seeds when added to liquid create a gel (like a pudding).  It is a different texture but, the strawberry really compliments it well.  Chia seeds are the   "superfood" for November because of their amazing nutritional profile including a great source of protein and fiber.

Ingredients: Makes 5 servings

2 cups plain non- fat Greek yogurt
3/4 cup maple syrup
2 tsp. vanilla extract, pure
½ cup chia seeds
2 cups skim milk
2 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced

Directions

  1. In a bowl, whisk together skim milk, plain yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Stir in chia seeds.
  2. Allow to sit for 30 minutes. Re-stir to redistribute any settled chia seeds. Refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight.
  3. Divide chia seed pudding into 5 portions of 8 fl. oz. and top with ½ cup strawberries.
