1 banana, peeled and very ripe, cut into chunks
1 cup fresh berries; strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or your favorite
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup chia seeds
Place banana, berry blend and frozen blueberries, maple syrup and vanilla in a high-powered blender.
Blend on high until smooth; approximately 45 seconds.
Transfer mixture to a wide-mouth Mason jar and stir in chia seeds, making sure seeds are mixed throughly into the mixture.
Cover jar and refrigerate for 1 -2 hours, or overnight, until mixture has solidified into a pudding-like consistency.
