Hi loves! Here’s a quick recipe for an easy and delicious breakfast, dessert, or snack. Pairing fibrous chia seeds with our fruit smoothie helps regulate blood-sugar levels and adds protein content. (More on chia seeds here). Expect to feel fully satiated after this treat!
Blackberry Cherry Parfait
An easy, delicious (and aesthetically pleasing) breakfast, dessert, or snack.
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup blackberries (frozen)
- ½ cup cherries (frozen)
- ¼ cup almond mylk (or more, as needed)
In a glass, mix water and chia seeds together well. Let sit in the fridge overnight or for at least an hour. This will form the bottom layer, a “chia pudding”.
To create the top layer, place frozen blackberries and cherries, and almond mylk into a high powered blender. If your blender has a tamper this will come in handy. The idea is for this layer to be very thick, so you can eat it with a spoon. However, you can mix in more almond mylk, if needed, for the fruits to blend properly.
Pour the thick smoothie creation on top of your chia seed pudding, and garnish with fruit, nuts, or seeds of your choice for some aesthetic fun! I used dragonfruit. Enjoy!
