I’ve been eating so much chia seed pudding its practically coming out of my pores.
This parfait is perfect for breakfast, a snack or dessert. Sometimes I have it twice a day when I'm craving something sweet.
Another major benefit? Chia seeds contains tons of fiber and fills you right up!
6 tbs chia seeds
2 cup nut milk ( I like to use Oat milk, almond milk or macadamia nut milk)
2 tbs honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
a pinch of salt
Mix everything throughly. You want to ensure there are no lumps as chia seeds sometimes clump together. Cover it and put it in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours. I like to leave mine over night and have it for breakfast in the AM.
The chia seeds will expand and get gelatinous. Note: you can add a little splash of more milk if your consistency is too thick.
Now comes the fun part: TOPPINGS!
The sky's the limit, pick your favorite toppings and make it your own. I change mine up almost every time.
Here are some suggestions:
- Fresh fruits
- Chopped nuts
- Freeze dried fruits
- Peanut butter/ Almond butter
PS: if you're looking for that "dessert" type of feeling, use frozen fruit and let it melt into the chia parfait.
