Place the strawberries, non-dairy milk, and maple syrup in a blender, and blend on medium speed until smooth.
Pour into a bowl or glass jar and add the vanilla and chia seeds and stir to combine.
Cover the bowl or jar and refrigerate.
Refrigerate for at least three more hours or until the mixture is thick and pudding-like.
Spoon into bowls and top with whipped cream if desired. You can also add some finely chopped strawberries to the top.
Store leftovers in the refrigerator. They should stay fresh for about 3 days.
Use whatever non-dairy milk that works for your dietary needs.
