Author The Cowgirl Gourmet slightly adapted this recipe from thekitchn.com


  • 1 13 1/5 ounce can coconut milk, full fat and organic
  • 1 pound organic strawberries washed, hulled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla bean paste
  • 1/4 scant cup raw honey or maple syrup, if vegan
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • Whipped cream or whipped coconut cream optional as garnish
  • Hemp seeds optional as garnish


  1. In a blender, place the strawberries and the coconut milk. Add the vanilla and honey. Puree until it turns a beautiful pink color and mixture is smooth. Taste and add a bit more honey if needed.
  2. Place the chia seeds in a large bowl, pour the strawberry-coconut milk mixture on top and whisk thoroughly. Let stand for 10 minutes and whisk again.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 3 days.
  4. Before serving, stir the pudding. The longer it sits, the thicker it will become...if it is too thick, whisk in a little water or coconut water until you reach the desired consistency.
  5. Spoon into individual cups or bowls and garnish as you wish with berries, whipped cream, hemp seeds and/or a drizzle of honey.
