Strawberry Banana Chia Parfait

Strawberry Banana Chia Parfait

This strawberry banana chia parfait is a very delicious and healthy breakfast that you can make the night before and enjoy in the morning. This is the basic recipe for a plain, vanilla flavored chia pudding spiced with strawberries and banana. You can use different berries to flavor your pudding, as well as apples or pears in the colder months. You can also switch out the bananas for another fruit or leave them out altogether and just have the strawberries.
