Raspberry Vanilla Chia Parfait

Raspberry Vanilla Chia Parfait

Chia is a true superfood, one that is rich in protein, essential fatty acids, and a host of other important nutrients. It’s no longer just a worthless grass that you can use to grow funky hair on DollarStore toys. It’s the ultimate superfood!

To really put chia to the test, try this amazingly beneficial and delicious treat. You may also want to try our Blackberry Chia Pudding.

Ingredients:

For the chia pudding:

For the raspberry layer:

  • 1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp maple syrup

Instructions:

In container or jar with a lid, add the chia pudding ingredients. Stir well to combine everything and make sure there are no clumps. Adjust sweetness to taste by adding more maple syrup.  Allow to sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

In a small pot over medium heat, add the raspberries, water, and maple syrup. Cook until the raspberries start to break down, about 3 minutes. Stir in the chia seeds and remove from heat. This can be made ahead with the chia pudding or let it sit for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Assemble the parfaits in a small jar or bowl. Start with a layer of the chia pudding followed by a raspberry layer. Repeat until the jar is filled. Top with any nuts, seeds, nut butters, or granola.

And there you have it! Now you just need to sit back and brew a strong cup of Organic Grind Coffee to enjoy them with.
