Have you been wondering what all the fuss is about chia pudding? In addition to it being a magical science experiment, chia pudding is pretty rad because it gives you a big boost of both fiber and calcium. When you eat it for breakfast, it's like starting your day with a fancy dessert - you can't go wrong with that can you?
Be sure to keep reading after the recipe because 20 of my blogging friends and I have teamed up to bring you even more great breakfast recipes at the bottom of this post!

STEP 1Combine milk, vanilla, agave and chia is a glass bowl or measuring cup. Refrigerate at least four hours (up to 24 hours), stirring at least once during that time. If I am making this for breakfast, I will usually mix this up and put it in the fridge after dinner and stir it once right before bed and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
STEP 2Layer pudding and chopped fruit in a stemless wine glass as follows:
layer 1: 1/3 chia pudding
layer 2: raspberries
layer 3: apricot
layer 3: 1/3 chia pudding
layer 4: pineapple
layer 5: kiwi
layer 6: remaining chia pudding
layer 7: blackberries
STEP 3Top with shredded coconut if desired.
