Serving size: 3/4 cup
Combine almond milk, chia seeds, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla and salt in a small mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Pour into a sealed container and place in the fridge overnight, or at least 3-5 hours. The mixture should thicken to a pudding-like texture. At the same time, slice the strawberries and toss with coconut sugar to coat. Cover with saran wrap and place in the fridge to macerate overnight, or until the pudding has reached the correct consistency. To assemble, lightly mash the strawberries to resemble a jam-like texture. Pour half the mashed strawberries in the bottom of two serving bowls or jars. Sprinkle with sliced almonds. Evenly distribute the chia seed pudding into two jars. Add the remaining mashed strawberries among the two jars, and top with remaining sliced almonds and chia seed pudding. If desired, garnish with extra sliced strawberries and almonds.
