1 ½ cups almond milk (or plant-based milk of your choice)
½ cup chia seeds
½ teaspoon natural vanilla extract
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or to taste
Pinch of cinnamon (optional)
Granola and fruits of choice
Note: For a soy-free and gluten-free parfait, select your alternative milk and granola accordingly.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the first four ingredients together until well mixed.
Cover and place in the refrigerator for 6 hours or longer (up to 2 days). The chia should be thick and creamy; stir to break up any clumps. Add a little cinnamon, if desired.
Layer chia pudding in bowls or parfait glasses with granola and/or fruits of your choice.
