Blueberry Banana Chia Seed Parfait

1 cup almond milk
1 cup coconut milk, full fat
⅓ cup chia seeds
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or 1 ½  tablespoons of stevia
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
2-3 bananas, sliced
1 ½ cup blueberries, preferably organic

Topping options: hemp seeds, slivered almonds, shredded coconut.

In a large glass bowl, mix the chia seeds, both milks, maple syrup, and vanilla until it’s combined, making sure there aren’t any clumps of chia seeds. Cover and place in the fridge for four hours or make the night before. If the pudding comes out too thin, mix in another tablespoon of chia seeds. If the pudding is too thick, add a splash of milk to thin it to desired consistency.

Using four small parfait glasses or regular 8-10 oz glass cups, spoon in 1-2 tablespoons of the chia pudding, then add a layer of blueberries and sliced bananas repeating these steps and adding toppings if desired. You can make up your own variations, have fun!!
