Strawberry Beet Chia Parfait with Coconut Cashew Cream

This definitely falls into the Eat Pretty Category.  ALMOST too pretty to eat.  We went looking for some creative chia seed breakfast recipes after reading about the incredible health benefits of this superfood.  They have more calcium than milk, more antioxidants than blueberries and more Omega-3 than salmon.  What we found is amazingly delicious. It's a Strawberry-Beet Chia Parfait with Coconut Cashew Cream.  We added some goji berries to this one for some extra anti-oxidant power!
