Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding

I just whipped up this recipe while waiting for supper. It’s a quick and nutritious breakfast that can be prepared in the evening to have on hand on those busy workday mornings. I’m a huge fan of coconut, but if you aren’t a fan, omit the coconut and replace coconut milk with almond milk.
