Strawberries!

Strawberries are finally in season, and I cannot get enough of the delicious berries. They are perfect in just about everything, and are even incredibly good just by themselves. It is incredibly appropriate that today is National Pick Strawberries Day. I don't know where there are any strawberry farms around here, but I think it would be super fun to go strawberry picking. I would probably eat more than we took home. For now I will just have to be satisfied with using the strawberries from the store. With a delicious parfait like this, I won't suffer much.

Strawberry Chia Parfaits
Makes 2
1 cup Greek yogurt (vanilla or plain)
1 cup sliced strawberries
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp water
½ cup milk

Whisk together the chia seeds, maple syrup, vanilla, water, and milk. Let it stand for one hour, whisking every 15 minutes or so to prevent clumping. Refrigerate overnight. To assemble the parfaits, put about ¼ cup yogurt in the bottom of two glasses. Add a layer of strawberries followed by a layer of the chia pudding. Finish the parfait off with another layer of strawberries, yogurt, and topped with more strawberries.
