Next, stir together yogurt, milk and some chia seeds. You may be familiar with chia from growing plant pets, but have you used it to boost your breakfast? Chia seed makes a nice addition to these breakfast parfaits. It thickens the yogurt mixture and adds a nice crunch. Spoon the yogurt mixture into glasses, then add a layer of cooked quinoa.
