Place the four frozen strawberries and one tablespoon of water in a bowl. Cover and microwave for 3 minutes.
Remove strawberries from microwave and mash with a fork thoroughly until a purée forms.
Blend the strawberry purée, milk, vanilla and maple syrup.
Once consistent, add in chia seeds and stir.
Let stand for 90 minutes.
Stir at 5 minutes and then again at 10 minutes.
Optional: When it's ready to eat, top the pudding off with hemp hearts for added protein or freshly sliced strawberries for added sweetness.
