16 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled
1 1/2 cups (or one 13 1/2-ounce can) coconut milk or almond milk
1/4 cup honey, or to taste
1 vanilla bean, scraped, or 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1/2 cup chia seeds

Place the strawberries, coconut milk, honey, vanilla, and lime zest in a blender and blend until smooth.
Taste and add more honey if desired.
Place the chia seeds in a large bowl, pour the strawberry mixture on top, and whisk thoroughly. Let stand for 10 minutes and whisk again.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 3 days.
Stir the pudding before serving.
The longer it sits, the thicker the pudding will become; if it is too thick, whisk in a little water (or coconut water).

Spoon into individual cups or bowls and garnish.

Serves 4-6
