  • Cover and seal until air-tight and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight to allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and thicken. After the mixture has thickened, stir it well again to break up any clumps that may have formed.
  • Spoon into 4 serving cups and top each with ¼ cup mixture of fresh fruit, granola, nuts, and seeds.
  • Let sit or serve immediately.
Breakout Trick
For nut-free, replace cashew milk with vegan nut-free milk of your choice and avoid any nuts in granola or on the topping.
