Chia Pudding Parfaits July 24 2017, 0 Comments
Yes, the chia seeds I'm referring to are the same as those in the iconic Chia Pet. Chia seeds are considered a 'super food' because they're packed with protein and fiber. They also contain healthy antioxidants, fatty acids and Omega-3.
I'm a huge fan of chia seeds and have been making this recipe for breakfast on Sunday evenings to prepare for the workweek as long as I can remember, so I figured I should share it.
Prep time: 30 mins (not counting storing the pudding in the fridge overnight)
Yield: 5 servings
Serving size: 1 8oz mason jar
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 2 cups almond milk
- 1.5 cups strawberries
- 1 cup granola
- Combine the chia seeds and almond milk in a bowl and stir (I use vanilla almond milk to make the pudding sweeter, but you could also sweeten with some honey). Place the bowl in the fridge overnight. I'd recommend string the mixture again at some point in the first few hours to get rid of the clumps that seem to form at the top.
- Once the pudding is ready (should be the consistency of tapioca), slice the berries and distribute among 5 8oz mason jars. Next, fill the jars with the chia pudding until about half an inch from the top of the jar.
- Store in the fridge for healthy breakfasts all week.
- I usually wait to put the granola on the top of each jar until I am about to leave, so that it remains crisp.
