This is the perfect Summer desert. Light, cool and fruity.


To serve 4-6 you will need:

1/2 cup chia seeds
500g fresh or frozen strawberries
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1 vanilla bean, scraped
1/4 cup honey, or to taste
3/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest


Add to your blender the strawberries, honey, coconut milk,lemon zest and vanilla. Blend until smooth. This will also be your chance to add more honey should you have a sweet tooth.

Whisk together the chia and the blended strawberry mixture. Let it rest for about 10 minutes and whisk some more.

Cover your bowl and put it in your refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Before serving stir the pudding and spoon into pretty individual bowls. Garnish with sliced fresh strawberries and some coconut shavings or whatever tickles your culinary creative fancy.
