Low in sugar and high in all kinds of nutrients, this Chia Strawberry Pudding can be enjoyed as a sweet treat in the evening or can be left to set overnight and enjoyed the next morning. If you haven’t tried using chia seeds yet, get on the bandwagon. They can be put over salads or into smoothies. When you soak them, they become gelatinous, which is why you see them put in recipes such as this one.
