Easy Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds are low in calories and high in nutrients and dietary fiber. In addition to beneficial fats and fatty acids, chia seeds provide a healthy amount of minerals including calcium, potassium, manganese, and zinc.

What could be better than a dessert recipe that tastes as good as it is nutritious?

1 cup vanilla-flavored unsweetened almond milk
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (preferably grade B), plus 4 teaspoons for serving
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
¼ cup chia seeds
1 pint strawberries (hulled and chopped)
1/2 cup raw pecans

In a medium bowl, gently whisk the almond milk, yogurt, 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup, the vanilla, and salt until just blended. Whisk in the chia seeds; let stand 30 minutes. Stir to incorporate the seeds if they have settled. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, add the berries along with the remaining 4 teaspoons maple syrup. Mix in the pecans and serve chilled.
