Lemon Berry Chia Seed Pudding

Lemon Berry Chia Seed Pudding

In my mind, nothing can compare to the beauty of nature. Whether mountains, rivers, forests, or even just flowers in a front yard, nature always captures my attention in an overwhelming manner. With spring finally here, I have been taking long walks in the morning or at night when the sun isn’t as hot, admiring the scenery. Plus, the arrival of spring means a whole new season of fresh veggies and fruits, so you can bet I’ve been making it a weekly habit to visit the local farmer’s market.

This week, when I was walking through, I was blown away by the vibrancy and abundance of strawberries in the market’s booths. One stand had only strawberries, their entire table covered to the brim in the delicious fruit. Another booth was selling strawberry cookies, made with real berries. Then I came across a “fruit ceviche” stand which was selling strawberries marinated in other fruit juices and topped with spices. Everywhere around me, vendors were getting creative with their use of the fruit, welcoming spring to the fullest extent. I knew I wanted in on the act!

So, inspired by both my love of nature and spring, I set out to make a refreshing treat. The outcome? A light, chia seed pudding for your morning, afternoon snack, or even as a yummy dessert. Bursts of tangy lemon balance out perfectly with the sweet fruit, making it the perfect spring treat in my opinion!
