Chia seeds are excellent when trying to create a healthy dessert or breakfast because they are fiber-rich and nutritious, and thicken a pudding without the need for starches. Consider pre-assembling several of these and leaving them in the fridge for when you need a quick sweet treat or breakfast.
This recipe is from my cookbook, Wandering Palate.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes + soaking time
¼ cup chia seeds
1 cup almond or coconut milk
½ cup fresh blueberries, divided
5 oz. coconut yogurt, such as Coyo brand coconut yogurt
4 fresh mint leaves
1. Mix the chia seeds with the almond milk or coconut milk in a bowl or jar. Let it sit for 30 minutes until the seeds expand in the liquid.
2. To assemble 2 parfaits, create a base of the chia mixture at the bottom of 2 jars or parfait glasses. Top with half of the blueberries followed by a layer of coconut yogurt. Top with the remaining blueberries.
3. Garnish each parfait with 2 mint leaves and enjoy.
