Fruity Chia Parfait

Chia  seeds are packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and when paired with fresh fruit are a great (and delicious!) way to start your morning.


Of all the non-dairy milks, almond milk has the thickest consistency and will make the thickest mixture when combined with the chia seeds. If you choose to use rice or coconut milk, add a bit more chia seeds (after it initially sets) until you get the thickness you want.ChiaParfait2

Allow to thicken at least 2 hours, or overnight. Then layer with fresh fruit in a tall glass. Drizzle a bit more syrup over the fruit topping if you like.ChiaParfait3
